Albums Of The Year
In addition to writing the individual reviews, I write up a piece at the end of each year picking my favorite 10 - 25 albums of each particular year. It gives a pretty good insight into the things that I really enjoy, as well as an interesting look at how my tastes have progressed over the past several years.

In addition to writing my own lists, I've also been taking reader list submissions for the past several years. Without fail, I've discovered great things that I've missed throughout the years by reading through these lists.
