Scarily, it doesn’t seem that long ago that I was posting a list of my favourite albums of 2010: click here for a reminder.
Well, it’s that time of year again already. Today I noticed that several of the glossy muso magazines have just published their, sadly, rather predictable, lists of the top albums of 2011, so, for what’s it worth, I thought I’d better pitch in with mine.
But if you’re expecting to see anything from the likes of Adele, Coldplay or Radiohead in the running, you’ll be sorely disappointed, so, please look away now or go back to your copy of Q. Yawn.
I’ve also included some videos of tracks from said albums.
If you want to argue with me, then I’ll see you in the pub.
