NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION: CLEAN UP STACKS AND STACKS OF RECORDS

I hate to just make a list like this but I'm cleaning out a cabinet stuffed with well over 200 official CD releases (well, a lot of them are official CDR releases) that all came out in the last two or three years. This is where I put stuff that I listened to at least once and found intriguing, or outright excellent, but had yet to do enough research or be hit by the right inspiration to write up an actual review. However, I'm listing them here because they are all good enough to have a copy registered, for posterity, in the Library of Blastitude, as of today. (In other words, I'm not going to try to trade them in at Reckless.) I know that to you, the reader, it may just be another list you'll skim over, big deal, but I thought these records should at least get some props -- you should see how many more went in the 'sell or throw away' pile. I won't name those.

So, before these all get filed and dispersed into the impersonality of the collection-at-large, here's what was stuffed in that cabinet, in the order they were stacked after approximately 3 years of on-and-mostly-off use:

Just listened to the Crappy Nightmareville disc tonight driving through a rainstorm. Very nice disc. Give it a listen during the next storm.
