    Wow, no Dove Brothers or Gold City? Gold City had one of the best CDs this year I thought.

    Kingsmen seem to top a lot of people’s list…well deserved props for them.

    Dove Brothers and Gold City both had solid CDs this past year. I rated both of them at 4 Stars…just under the radar for this list.

    Another favorite was Triumphant’s _Intermission_.
