This blog is now closed. Thanks to everyone who joined us on the journey for the past seven years – the contributors, the artists, the PR people, and you, the person reading this. (The proper album-style thank you list is here, if you’re curious.) We’re not taking the blog down, so you can still read through all of our entries these past seven years – or you can listen to a Spotify playlist of almost every song we’ve written about. And in case you still want to read my thoughts, I’ll be blogging over on my personal blog, still.
