I think Sheff is one of the best…
[W]elp, it’s that time of the year again — time to try and stack rank the albums I’ve spent my life with over the past year. Weighing intangible against intangible and doing my best to pick which one comes out on top! In some ways, this annual ritual makes me feel like I’m trying to pick a favorite kid. Actually, doing that might be easier. I keed, I keed. No DSS calls please. Below are my top albums for the year and even one bonus suggestion which I was lucky enough to get a preview of during 2013, but that…
