To hell with 2013

a0504194020_10

One more time we’re heading to the end of a year. I haven’t write any blog posts for a year and now I’m doing it because I want to make some kind of retrospective to 2013 – in terms of music albums and concerts.

Few times I was thinking about writing some “useful” blog posts – but let’s say I was pretty busy all the time and this was always low priority – and I believe this will  stay like that, at least until I don’t completely finish some faculty duties, and I hope this will be during the next year.

Anyhow, let’s talk about music. There’s no order at all.

Personal top music lists in 2012

Godspeed-ALLELUJAH-e1349150856328

Once again, it’s the end of the world…I mean…it’s the end of a year, and we all love to look back somehow, to remind ourselves about the good things, good music, and everything good that happened during the whole year.

Before I’ve even started to write this list, I was thinking that in last two years I’m listening much less new music then I was listening before. Maybe it’s because I have less time, maybe it’s because there’s not a lot new music that satisfies, maybe it’s because of satiation, maybe it’s something else…who knows. Well, never mind, regardless of that, I still have some great records to share with you. Some new (from this year) and some old that I’ve recently discovered.
