It has been a helluva year with tons of goodreleases.... When I started to do a top list I ended up at top 103 before I said to myself that Im insane... So therefor... here is only a top 30... And as you can understand - who the hell can judge why number 22 is better thatn 27... have no clue... But a list must be done... so here it is. And you should all own all these CDs. And congratulations to Brian Vander Ark - his album is without a doubt this years finest moment in music.
