We wrap up the musical year in 2010 with our annual Exclaim! Year In Review. Check out where your favourite artists placed (or didn't place) this year on our lists. Arcade Fire are top in Pop & Rock, Torche dominate in Metal, Big Boi reigns in Hip-Hop and White Lung come out on top in Punk. Then we had the Sadies taking No. 1 in Folk & Country, the always weird Flying Lotus winning in Electronic, Janelle Monáe taking the coveted Soul & R&B honours, while Improv & Avant Garde continued to refuse numbered rankings.
In this month's Questionnaire section, we chatted with My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way. He talked to us about the change in sound for My Chemical Romance's newest effort, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, and learn why Way describes the new album as a "rebellion against that rebellion."
In our December Timeline feature, we look at the lively 42-year career of Phil Anselmo. The metal legend has fronted Pantera and Down, he has endured praise and public feuds with former mates, drug addiction, debilitating physical injury and dissolution of both personal and professional relationships.
This month's Interviews are, as always, all over the musical map. Our feature articles this month include chats with Cee Lo Green, Yelawolf, the Lowest of the Low's Ron Hawkins, the Russian Futurists and the legendary Garth Hudson of the Band.
In Music School this month, Allison tells you to Slow Music Now! Her golden advice lets you know how you can be successful by taking advantage of your local scene at a time when the slow movement is taking over.
