FYI - you can also do tracks of the year on Topsters. I managed to find all of mine searching for the track name and part of the act.

It would've been high up on my list had it not been for what came out. Just didn't feel right keeping it in.

Not done mine yet but don't feel I can include Hookworms, could've held the number 2 position I had it at before the news tho. Haven't listened to it since, don't particularly want to.

Think I've only seen one list with it in. No doubting it would have been in a lot more if it wasn't for what went on.

It's a great album.

Huh as if you didn’t purge the memory of the new Preoccs album. So disappointed, personally.

Spanish Love Songs 

Seen the shouts for these a couple of times and the name’s intrigued me. Best be good.

Odds have shortened on @Mardy being JJ all along.

To be honest I'd forgot all about it until I went back to some albums from earlier in the yer before making that list. It's definitely their weakest but I still like it. It does like a big standout track like Death or Memory though.

stuck a fake name in there to check we're awake

It was in my list too, you uncultured swine. Had it on heavy rotation for weeks now, Grade A stuff from the Hen lads.

No one had a better opening line this year than 'I live on a mountain, the only tall structure on this planet.'
