One thing that's striking about these lists is what a disparate lot they are. There are a few discs that crop up several times (Wooden Shjips, Psychic Ills, Black Tempest and Solus 3 being the main ones), but otherwise ... you'd have to be a retired millionaire in order to amass the time and money necessary to listen to all of them. And this board is but an insignificant dot on the wider lsnadscape of middle Englan's loistenoing habits.

Makes a change from ye olden dayes when the Festive 50 plus NME and Melody Maker's lists would probably feature most of your favourite records of the year if you had even vaguely leftfield tastes. The sheer volume of music being produced nowadays seems to have lead to a far more diverse and interesting musical landscape, but also a greater degree of fragmentation and a loss of unity that makes the plethora of new releases more confusing to negotiate and digest than ever before. Discuss, if you wish...
