This was the first year I spent completely living in Minnesota which was quite a bit different from New Mexico. The difference I found in new avenues to discover new music in my newly adopted home state was astonishing. I had never found myself surrounded by so many different musically knowledgeable people, going to so many excellent concerts and listening to so much great music, present and past.
Looking back, this was a great year for music. If i had to make a top 20 songs of all time list the included songs from Johnny Cash, The Roots, Drag The River, Wilco, The Flaming Lips, Against Me!, and Paul Westerberg would be strong contenders for inclusion.
Here's 2002. Hope you dig it.
