The Transgressions 2009-2011

Leave a comment

After just two years the Transgressions have called it a day. They only had a handful of releases but they quickly became one of my favorite pop punk bands of the past decade. I’m very sorry to hear they’re gone; hopefully we get a band almost as good in their place.

Top 25 Albums of 2011

Leave a comment

Albums this year was pretty tough, there are some good ones that were left off. Speaking of ones left off there are some releases that were not included. Some of the reasons were if they were compilations, covers and live material. While there has been some great stuff this year put out that matches this I don’t think it’d be fair. There are even one or two things I left off of here because it was mostly compilation, or previously released material. So if you think I missed something, think about that first…then violently disagree with me.
