Delete any duplicates, count up the number of entries on your list and this will give you some idea of how eclectic your listening habits are. A score of 9 represents an extremely unvaried musical taste while a 160 represents an extremely varied one.

10. The Hold Steady - Heaven Is Whenever
I just started to get into The Hold Steady last year, so I don't have the same long history with the band as some people. A lot of people criticized this album for not having the sparkle of their last couple, but it's a solid, fun rock record. It was summery in the summer, but has kept it's relevancy into the winter. The loss of Franz Nicolay gives the band fewer over-zealous background vocals and piano parts, but Tad Kubler's guitar parts have a chance to shine. Lyrically, Heaven Is Whenever doesn't pack much punch, but the fun music makes it a solid Hold Steady release.
9. The National - High Violet
2 Jan 2011, 15:51 by el_backpulverHello all together,
it has been 365 days since I last evaluated a bunch of records and told you which ones I liked the best. And since 365 days make a full year (at least if it's not a bissextile ) you might guess that this time I give you my top ten list of 2010.
Just for your information (rather not overuse these abbreviations), my evaluating system hasn't changed so if you checked out my last years journal entry, you will be familiar with it. In case you missed it and wanna know what the heck I'm talking about, just read the paragraphs 3 - 4 of this entry.
Okay then, as last year I'll start with the records with a probability up to 40% in alphabetical order.
Bane - 7:58 am Perth EP
Bleeding Through - Self-Titled
Bomb The Music Industry - Adults!!!... Smart!!! Shithammered!!! And Excited By Nothing!!!!!!!
City Lights - Burned Out Bright
Hold Steady, The - Heaven Is Whenever
Look Mexico - To Bed to Battle
Tub Ring - Secret Handshake

8 Nov 2010, 11:39 by el_backpulverAhoi,
welcome to a month full of concerts and dilettante live show reviews. This time I’ll take you to three shows of Folk influenced Punk Rock of different levels, audience- and skillwise. Hope you’ll enjoy it.
11/05/2010 - The Gaslight Anthem w/ The Riot Before, Sharks and Chuck Ragan - C-Halle
While the increase of the audience over the years is a linear development for most bands, there are some exceptions, which seem to rather have an exponential growth of the crowd. One of those exceptions is New Jersey’s The Gaslight Anthem, who received comprehensive critical acclaim for their latest release “American Slang”, maybe to a lesser extend due to the records quality but more because they earned the Boss’ appreciation for their mixture of Punk Rock and this springsteenesque Blues and Folk Rock. If that was the main reason why they were able to play in front of 3,000 instead of 400 people this year, was a question to be answered.
