Seeing our "best of the year... so far" lists gave our good friend Steve Chilton (AKA Psyko Steve) such strong urning for list creation, it could only be quenched by making his own list. So without further ado, Steve's list...
I change what records I am into almost daily. The top half of the list has lived in the CD player in my car since they came out. These are all at the top for sure but putting a number on it is a bit arbitrary and I am sure I will dislike this order tomorrow. I also want to make a honorable mention of Miniature Tigers new album Fortress but since it is not officially out yet and I have only heard a promo I thought it should not make the cut, but it would be near the top if it could.
So far The Morning Benders Big Echo is the one album that is making it's way onto all of our lists, that must mean it's REALLY good, and it is. Check out Steve's entire list along with mostly hand picked videos after the break...
