Comments on my first read:
1. "The Last Baron" cracked my top ten songs of the year, so I definitely don't have a problem with it, but I still think "Hearts Alive" is better. But I also think Leviathan is one of the five or so best albums ever, so maybe I'm a little biased.
2. Propagandhi's album cracked my top ten (spoiler) in a year when I listened to metal 90% of the year. It's DAMN good, and if I had tastes more like yours, I would almost declare it a "best album ever" candidate.
3. Most of your favorite movies of the year are on my "wish I saw it/plan to rent it" list for the year.
4. "I'm Ron Fucking Swanson." That is all.
Mortals are mortar and life is the fuse.
