An A/V Album Listmas

You’ve already heard—and perhaps even joined in on—the anti-listmas chorus. But for some reason, people like lists. There are statistics to back that up. When I review albums and EPs, I tend to stick to ones I love. With that in mind, feel free to peruse A/V from my “best of” list below ... or not. Whatever you do, please seek out music that challenges and excites you in 2014.
