    Re: 2014 Lost In The Year End Shuffle

    Banks's Goddess was my album of the year, but I don't think I've seen her on a year end list yet. The Pains of Being Pure at Heart's album was really great, too, but has only got a few nods.

    I am glad that rock has become more niche oriented. There are so many more bands for me to like. And it is easier to see them close up live.
