It's that time of year again! Time to take stock of the musical year that was and deliver the results in handy list form. So we want to know: what moved/soothed/grooved you?
Whatever your criteria, whatever your tastes, we want your top ten choices for 2011. The rules are simple, but important: 1) We're talking new releases out in the calendar year 2011 (i.e. none of those reissues that had us sometimes trying to figure what year this was, exactly-- there were a lot of them!). 2) Try to limit choices to full-length releases from individual artists-- no EPs or compilations (though you're certainly welcome to highlight any of those that caught your fancy in addition to the ten full-lengths on your list).
Seems to us it was a big year. local and otherwise, and we wouldn't want you to forget anything. So take your time-- we'll accept your submissions up until Friday, December 23rd, crunch the numbers and once again present them back to you in a convenient audio/visual format at the end of the month. You can submit in the comments below or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org (you may be embarrassed to be including Lulu on your list, after all).
