Top albums, films and music vids of the year.

That’s right everyone else is doing it all over the internet so I might as well join in (That sentence taken on its own is not a very good lifestyle guide btw).

In the new year I will be posting the top 10 rock clubs with detailed(ish) reviews of them all. Comment with your suggestions for them if you have any at the bottom of the page.

In the meantime:

Yeah it wins for originality, sheer cheek and audacity, but I’m not linking to it here. I’m just not.

On reflection about one year later the list of top 10 albums seems completely wrong. Slayer’s World Painted Blood should definitely have been in there, probably in the top 3. Endgame should have been a lot higher, and Shark Bites probably shouldn’t have even been in there at all. That’s hindsight for you.
