A Few (50) of Kyle's Favorite Things

Oh, hello there. My name is Kyle and I am Clay's (of ClayTV fame) little brother. Starting this week, I'm going to try start helping Clay run this bitch. I'll try to post a couple things a week. I may veer away from the video aspect of the site, but it'll still be music oriented. Nice to meet you!

It's beginning to look a lot like ...list season. Boooring. Hey you guys. Here is my addition to the shit pile of lists out there on the interwebs. I don't claim that these are the "best" albums of the year - just the albums that had the most impact on me this year. I'll give you 50-21 today and the rest will follow later this week. I'm still tweaking my top 20.
