All right 'tis the season for year-end lists and coming to terms with which releases are identifiably the best. I'm not one much for ratings around here and its always hard to narrow things down but these are the releases that were the most impressive and/or spent the most time curled up on the Raven turntable this year. They are in no particular order, though high praise must be singled out to Wooden Shjips for packaging on the deluxe edition. These are the 20 LPs and 10 singles you definitely need in your collection this year. Apologies that it includes one RSD release but it belongs on this list. I've included a Discogs search for that one for you intrepid completists.
