(and don't miss the honourable mentions from a few days ago)
One reason I'd make a crappy music critic is that I enjoy pretty much any competently created music I hear. But complaining anyway is fun, so...
Worst Album of the Year: Lady GaGa - The Fame: OK I love that Just Dance song. There are a few other catchy songs on there, but the depth of the lyrics can be summed up in one of her song titles: Eh Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say).
There is probably a lot of great music that came out this year that I never even heard. So if you're thinking to yourself "awww, what about [band I like lots]?", you either have shitty taste in music, or I haven't heard it. You can just pretend it's the latter.
Now, what music did you listen to the most this year, and why aren't you blogging about it?
