STOP THE PRESSES! IT'S ROB'S TOP TEN AND THE STAFF TOP TEN!
Since we published our top ten lists, hardcore NYCD fans have been asking "Hey, what about Rob's top ten?" To which we responded, "Aaahh, Rob only listens to Grateful Dead records." Obviously, we were mistaken, because here's his Top Ten for 2006!
