2014 in Review: The Good, The Bad, The WTH?

2014 has been one heck of a year, to put it mildly. We’ve laughed, cried, and been furious and vastly disappointed. There has been good music, and there has been awful music. We’ve gained biases (oh, Ahn Jae-hyun, Lee Jong-suk and Kim Woo-bin)(and Park ChanYeol and Song JaeRim), and perhaps even written some off for … Continue reading

2012 in Review: Cosmic Comebacks
