Year End Music Countdowns #1: 2002

I’ll start with the year of 2002, when I was at the tender age of grade 10, and music had just taken over my life. There was no “Worst Of” chart this year, because I hadn’t become the jaded, bitter old man I would be the next year.

Please note also that these lists reflect my favorites based on my tastes of each respective year…things change..THEY DO.
