Onwards and Upwards in 2013

Onwards and Upwards in 2013

And a happy new year to each and everyone out there! As you guys might have noticed; the last two days (and posts) were unfortunately done from a location that was ‘Internet challenged’. My apologies for that; but it could not be helped. All in all, the list had some definite surprises; especially on the location of some of the bands apparently. Like Mr. Anonymous stated with his remark: ‘Fuck off this list.’ 56 of you freaks out there sent in the their lists naming exactly  344 different bands and artists. It has been a steady grower going from 18 lists to 37 to 48 and now 56. And of course I hope to receive even more upcoming year; making the list more and more valid with each passing year. So to start these last few posts about the countdown off and seeing as only four of my personal list made the top 20. I wanted to share my own list with all of you as well. But before I do that.

  1. I still don't believe that GLOWSUN is not in the Top 50.
    I suggest to all the freaks out there to check immediately the amazing album ETERNAL SEASON.

  2. They actually ended up on the 65th position. In the neighborhood of my personal top albums of this year.

  3. Never doubted the excellent taste of the Doktor ;-)

  4. indeed, Glowsun album was excellent
