This year’s #1 pick was difficult, as my top 4 were all pretty worthy: Scream’s 1st music in 18 years is not only quality but a surprising return to form, Red City Radio is my top new discovery for the year, & Jim Ward has some of the most well crafted and soulful songs of the bunch. Foo Fighters take it though. Dave Grohl & Co. delivered a masterpiece with their last album and to follow that up with a collection of songs that with every listen you discover a new favorite tune is rare, so they take it for me this year!
