8 Years a Maniac

Today is my 8 year sputversary. My time here has shaped my music tastes and knowledge and helped foster a hobby that is inseparable from my identity. Despite this, I didn't realize until recently just how much awesome music has been released in the last 8 years. So here's a list of my favorites (1 per artist because of list size limits) ... ranked as best as I can manage. Cheers, Sputdicks.
