    A fantastic year, although I wasn't buying that much music at the time. I've highlighted the few that I bought back then. I've discovered a lot of great music since. I remember sitting on the fence about buying THRAK. I considered it very expensive at the time and I had no idea what it sounded like. I ended up not buying it which was a mistake.
