Today sees my album blurb for PopMatters
' best of 2009 list, for (of course) the Mountain Goats
, coming in at a respectable 18. More importantly, it also sees my review
of an album I didn't even hear until after voting at PM, Doveman's fucking incredible tour de force The Conformist
. I've been doing this music critic thing for a minute or two, and as hopefully some of you have noticed I don't give out a lot of 10/10s, A+s, what have you. Doveman I gave a 10/10. Please find some way to hear this record; it'll be #1 in my Pazz & Jop poll for sure.
