John ... you will be remembered for these two lines, if nothing else.   :o

I think he is a "recidivist"  ;D

I've got a couple CDs in transit to me so I think it's best I wait until January 1 to post my list.  Looking forward to seeing other lists here as well.

John, that does look suspiciously like patting yourself on the back, which just jolly well isn't done over here :) (in the UK)

This will look like total blatant spam but too bad... I really loved Steve Brand and Roy Mattson's Meltstream on my label, Relaxed Machinery - wow - that is a great beatless ambient drift album.  We had a year where I just went "wow" every time we released a new album.  Andrew Lahiff, Steve Brand's solo stuff, Robert Scott Thompson, Seren Fford, Arbee / Specta Ciera's almost techno ambient album really kicked my booty nicely... AND we had reBOOT come out in January.. Wow - what a great year.   

I know I know - I'm cheating. 

I seem to spend more time catching up with older music than new ... my big obsession this year was Rod Modell  / Deepchord / Echospace ... and Yagya.  Most that I got were not 2014 though.  Also some older Robert Rich - which was awesome - and a few Alio Die gems.  Again - nothing "new".  Oh - backfilled some serious Steve Roach this year - probably added 8 albums to my collection - some of the "classics".

I agree.  You don't have to "like it" but pretending to like it would be very good for your mom.  In time you might accept him.  It's not an overnight process.

You totally have the rights to feel like you do - but you also have to think of your mom - and her happiness. 

Sometimes you do things for others even though you don't like it.  I think you've reached one of those times.

I had a hard time with my dad's girlfriend after my mom died.  He's still seeing her almost 20 years later.  Is she like my mom?  Oh sheeesh - no.  Not by a long shot.  Does she seem to make him happy - yes.  I'll take that.

Yeah, I would guess that it's a sine or triangle wave LFO controlling a filter with a bit of resonance.
