Behind The List – Best of 2010

I knew all year that we were going to do some kind of “Year end, Best Of” list from the minute we started Type II Cast. Last year, I ran a little survey via YEMBlog and Phish.net collecting what people thought were the “jams of the year.” The list was widely varied but I culled through the responses and ranked them by the total votes and a little executive decision. It started as a huge list with a lot of one-off pieces in it, but because I only asked for Number One choices there was a decent consensus.  Seven Below > Ghost was the runaway winner. We ran through the list on TWoL and it was kind of fun.

With Type II Cast we have 7 really passionate fans. I knew we could take this to another level. One man’s top-10 list is little more than opinion and we all know what opinions are like. With 7 of us we couldn’t really let our personal passions sway the groups collective opinion (kinda).

Episode 14: Best of 2010, Part 2

Listen to Episode 14

Continuing where we left off from last week, the crew counts down to the #1 best jam of the year. This week we have a full house with Eric, Scotty, Drew and Tanya joining me and a full episode clocking in at just over 1 hour. Despite being possibly our biggest episode to date, we only saw one “technical difficulty”, which I chose to leave in as it resulted in some comical banter. Without a doubt, the crew did a fantastic job defending their top picks, or arguing against some. Listen now for no spoilers, or get a peak at the top five after the jump.

Episode 13: Best of 2010, Part 1

Listen to Episode 13

Most every blog has been releasing their “best of” opinions over the last month and we just couldn’t resist joining in on the fun. To mix ours up we had all 7 panelists submit their individual Top 10 list, then we ranked and aggregated the scores for a “definitive” TypeIICast Top 10 list. Now there’s some interesting results and some interesting opinions on what makes something most worthy of being included in the list. Join us for Part 1 as Steve, Justin, Sam and Eric defend and discuss their choices and the bonehead exclusions made by their peers.

This week we countdown from #10 – 6 (kind of…it proved to be a challenge mathematically).

Full track listing after the jump.
