Given how the big list here on AM has been shaped a lot by US "East Coast" and UK critics, it's interesting to see what the critics from California believe to be great music. Unsurprisingly, it's generally more West Coast oriented.

Yeah that's one of the things that I found interesting is that you don't see very many West Coast U.S. based musical lists.
