It's been another great year! My sincere thanks to all participating artists!

It was very difficult to narrow down a list. I'm sure fellow listener-nominators will hit what I have not, as they're simply too good to be ignored!

Probably the hardest of the three categories to choose 5 from, and dismiss other great entries but here's my top 5:

1) I Only Am Escaped Alone To Tell Thee

2) The Music Of Erich Zann

3) The Other Lila

4) The Wreck Of The Charles Dexter Ward Pt. 1

5) Killing The Morrow

252 - Happy frog boots really sell it.

264 - Ape-like shadow drinkers, and use of color, help tell the tale and lampoon bar fantasies.

B-sides 17 - Perfect skewering, and the crack-smoking monkey is the master stroke (or, er... master mouse pull?).

266 - Surreal tone, where everything is just a bit off. Fit well with the story.

Really hard to vote - though slightly easier in that it would be unseemly to vote for my own stuff ! I have to go for :

234 - Jagannath

243 - The Other Lila

247 - How I Crippled the World ...

265 - Pop Quiz

269 - Bright Lights

Good luck to everyone - some astounding art last year !
