ALBUMMER! 21: The Tournament of Champions

On this episode on Albummer!, we take a look back at the twenty albums we listened to last year and try to determine gauntlet-style which one gave us the most trauma. This is our Apocolypse Now. May God have mercy on our souls.

The crew behind Two Minutes to Late Night are here to re-review some of the most critically reviled albums out there!

Stepdad Katie, no! Or, maybe yes since she's spared from further crimes against humanity?

I still need to catch up on the previous two episodes, but real mixed emotions here with Albummer returning (yay!) but without Katie (boo!). The tribute video was perfect, though.

EDIT: I think the winner is deserving, but I feel like Danzig Sings Elvis should have at least made the finals. Lots of tiebreaker votes cast though, it was very compelling!

I was able to locate this episode despite the 2M2LN tweet directing me to a different year entirely. The show is simply that good!

I could tell this was coming back because in the distance I heard the faint ringtone of Toxic by Britney Spears.

It is back and it is glorious. Thank you GB and thank you Albummer crew.

Congratulations to Corey Feldman. May he treasure his "Katie Rose Leon Memorial Trophy" forever.

That was a very good call-back by Jeremy at the end.

If you told me I had to choose between listening to Metallica or pouring battery acid directly into my ears, I would have to think about it.

So stoked to have another season of Albummer. I need to know if Cory Feldman is worse than the 2 time champion Lulu though? Would this be the album to dethrone Lulu (who took down St. Anger and Brokencyde)?

I know I'm a bit late - but I just want Lucy to know I heard her Charlton Heston joke even though nobody else laughed, I did. WITNESSED!

Just want to be on the record and confirm that, in fact, "Fieldy" is indeed short for "Fieldy Snuts"
