A Few New Lists

Guide to Electronic Music : Timeline and Styles
Musicians With Embarrassing Pasts
Tribute Albums That Suuuuuuck
Grand Theft Auto Radio Stations
Everything You Wanted to Know About "Bootlegs"
My Voyage Through Ambient Music
Top Viewed RYM Lists (Jan 09, 2009)
RYM's Top Double Albums
Greatest Concert Venues
Truly horrible album covers

Speaking of which, here's a new blog I threw together with an hour (ok make that 3) and copying and pasting all my RYM list. It makes it quite a bit easier to add labels and make the lists searchable by genre or type. I'll likely add more links to lists from other sites and magazines soon. Enjoy.

28 New Blogs

Got a burr in my bonnet, found, and upped a lot of new blogs. Some older prog and electronic stuff that I found via google searches and most weren't here. Enjoy and hit me in that chatbox if you find new blogs that are not here. I'll try to do my winter cleaning and clear out dead blogs when I have a good extra hour.
