So with the wealth of top album lists of the year, I did some research:
Didn't find much at Paste that interested me, but I did note that Jason Isbell was at 11 and I was intrigued. Next up, American Songwriter had a great list of 50 and there was Jason Isbell at number ONE! First decision made, "Southeastern" Plus iTunes had it on sale for $7.99! This list had a ton of artists that made me stop and read the writeup, but at 33 Mark Knopfler showed up with "Privateering" and iTunes had the 20 song cd for $11.99. I'm in, and I've never been disappointed with anything Mark has recorded, and it's the first one I'm listening to:
Of course if you adding with me I have $10 to go. Well I went to Spin to be surprised The Civil Wars, "The one that got away"was considered a COUNTRY recording, and that and it made an AP list I had to finally own maybe the last CD Joy and John Paul will put out. Again iTunes had for only $7.99.... I just might have to go back to the lists and find a song or two. Until the next post I have a lot of music to listen to!
