    Good call on Mastodon & All Pigs Must Die. I have them both in my top ten. But I couldn't get into that Radiohead album at all. Nevertheless, nice list. Good work.

    Great lists as always, but Radiohead over Mogwai? Nah son! I take it by it's absence from your list the Death Grips album never got into your ears. Also you should do a gig/gigs of the year bit.

    Guess I must be one of the few that felt the reaction to 'The King Of Limbs' was more disappointing than the album itself.
