Mammal’s Best of 2014: Day 2
Angela Gossow told me – I think it was Angela Gossow – she told me I should repeat the following part of my intro in every post in my Countdown. She says not everyone reads every post. I hope it was Angela Gossow.
I had a hell of a job cutting my lists down to my Top 30 Metal, Top 40 Prog and Top 20 Jazz albums. If I seem to have missed some really good stuff, please feel welcome to tell me. Please don’t berate me. Your top album may be lower down on my list, or maybe I simply haven’t heard it. Hundreds of albums are released every month in the online universe of music.
Actor of 2014
Kevin Spacey, main asshole in “House of Cards”. His performance was riveting. All of his performances are. In “House of Cards” he brilliantly projected the egotistical, greedy, power-hungry, conniving, treacherous, dishonest, self-aggrandising character of every politician who has ever existed.
