I know everyone loves to hear the guy who writes about music and bar hopping for a living bitch, so here I go, griping about how tired I am.

It's the end of the year, I just obsessed over my Top 10 albums tally, am struggling with these early holiday deadlines and am so ready for my vacation to New Orleans, which will run from Jan. 2-7. Plus, I think I'm still hurting from "The Loaf's Holiday Party" last Friday.

Forget partying down in the Big Easy. Right now, curling up on the sofa with the fam (1/3 are teachers and have, like, the whole damn month off), a bottle of wine and watching Christmas Vacation for the umpteenth time sounds pretty sweet, too.

    1. Lucinda Williams: Little Honey (Lost Highway). On Little Honey, alt-country queen Lucinda Williams returns to the more focused, rock-oriented sonics of her breakthrough 1998 album Car Wheels on a Gravel Road. In doing so, she reveals a newfound sexual confidence (the title track) and celebrates domestic bliss ("Tears of Joy"). The singer/songwriter also manages to mine pathos for humor on the superb Elvis Costello duet "Jailhouse Tears." Williams can still break your heart, though. "Little Rock Star" plays like a much-needed note to Amy Winehouse, penned by a sympathetic female singer who has already survived the perilous, "whatever it'll take to get them to listen" phase. Williams closes Little Honey with a fun treat: A surprisingly awesome swamp-rock cover of the AC/DC road warrior anthem "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna to Rock 'n' Roll)."
