*New albums from Rodney Crowell and Mastodon would likely be in the top 20; 
I just haven't digested those albums quite enough yet.

    The Rodney Crowell record was good. Not great but "Storm Warning" ismy jam. New Ryan Adams is quality stuff but definitely not even remotely Country. I know he's one of ours but he's off doing his own thing now and all the better for it imo. Creatively speaking, he sounds revived.
