Call me a poptimist. I love music, so I decided to finally express my love in a list. A list that shows my love for the year of music, instead of just random music for the moment. Don't worry -- I don't expect anyone to agree with anything in my list. But if asked I will defend my choices one at a time, whether it be the ranking itself or my choice to put releases from the year before on this year's list. 2003, here I come.
