The Best Albums of the Year, from KUT

With South by Southwest, Austin City Limits, several great festivals and lots of shows to go to on any given night, people here in Austin take their music seriously. So seriously, in fact, that KUT devotes an entire department to nothing but music journalism. This, however, is not journalism. I should point out that it wasn't easy — especially when trying so hard to be honest about something so subjective. When the dust settled, however, I was pleasantly surprised to consider just how much great music from these parts deservedly landed right up there with artists of national and international renown.
