End of the Year Extravaganza: Top 30 Albums! (Part 2)

As usual, it took me way longer to make this post than I planned. I kept meaning to do it, and then never felt like writing about music, because sometimes writing about music is hard. I've recently found myself agreeing with Frank Zappa or Elvis Costello or David Byrne or Frank Lloyd Right or Thelonious Monk or whoever said the following: "Writing about music is like dancing about architecture - it's a really stupid thing to want to do." So, I won't be providing descriptions. It's up to you to find info about these albums yourself - or, you could just trust me that they are indeed fantastic albums and download them in good faith.
