Best of 2021 | Steve

This year has been something. Again. Thankfully, we saw the return of live music, albeit in a limited fashion. If this whole mess—and the tenuousness of not only every show but my comfort with attending those shows—has taught me anything, its that for far too long we as fans have taken for granted the lengths our favorite musicians go to, to allow us to enjoy their music in person. This past year they not only shouldered the load they normally did, they also put themselves and their families at risk to make our lives a better place to live. I…

Best of 2021 | Ryan D.

Wow, once again it feels like it has been the longest year since last year! With all the turmoil in the world and the exhausting amount of nonsense (& oh yeah and we are STILL in a fucking pandemic!!!) I once again turn to music to help get me through it all. Music has always been my therapy, my escape, and being able to share my love of it with all of you is the best… my favorite thing in the universe honestly! Speaking of the best, the albums and EPs mentioned below are the absolute BEST of the best,…

2020 | Steve’s Best of the Year

What. Thefuck. Wasthat? Whatever it was, we made it to the end of 2020 and boy it couldn’t come soon enough. I, for one, can’t wait to bathe in the waters of a New Year like it will bring absolute resolution to all the crap that has been going down in our world. Will that happen? Who knows. But, at this point, any glimmer of hope is one that I’ll hang onto. To say 2020 was a strange one is no novel statement. There were times when I turned to music to get me through each passing moment and there…

Before we dig in, I wanted to express a humble thanks to you, dear reader, for following the adventures of the Music Savage gang on a weekly basis. We wouldn’t be doing this if it weren’t for you and your attention and love are truly appreciated. As the title of suggests, I’ve once again compiled a list of the albums that carried me through the year and laid them out—in no particular order—below. In an effort to not bore you, I’ve also used my beloved #50WordReview style to get you to the meat of the post faster while still being…
