Best Techno, Most Disappointing CDs of the Year, Best Art, etc.
I used to make a list of the worst CD each year, but that wasn't really fair. It was just the worst CD I purchased and tried to listen to. So, I think I should rename the category to "the most disappointing CDs of the year". You really let me down. I know you can do better. look at my face. LOOK AT MY FACE! See the sad look in my eyes? That's because of you. Now my heart is breaking. I hope you try harder in the future.

Dark Side of the Moon ... great album.

And it's a lot of fun in the 5.1 surround mixes, as well as the early versions, too!

I'm sorry to hear that Everclear has fallen from their previous greatness. I always have a little warm place for Art because he described Portland so well.
