The Pazz & Jop poll came out a few days ago, but here's what you've really been waiting for: our first Rockaliser End-Of-Year Radio Rockcast (Feat. Polite Convo, Minor Disagreements & Technical Incompetence).

You can download the show here. My list in written form is here; Aaron's is here. Bonus: list number-crunching.
