31 Dic 2011, 8:57 de maryjennI haven’t done this in years, 3 to be exact, but hours before the new apocalyptic (so they say) year will be onto us, I feel sudden urge to review the previous year in music. Again. This time however it will be a bit different. No categories. Just records that defined 2011 for me.
Let me start of by saying that 2011 was a tough year in general. And I guess it’s true for everybody. As for me: a lot of shit happened. So music was probably my biggest friend and best escape.
In my choice of music I surprised myself a lot. For starters I fell in love with hip-hop and keep on digging it, re-discovered Vampire Weekend (I used to hate them, c’mon)) and XX, listen to a lot more pop-music that is healthy and danced my ass off to Foals’ two records.
In the chart below you’ll find no indie-rock artist. Not even a single one. Indie rock bands didn’t define 2011 for me, not at all. Also: no Adele. Sorry. I love the girl, I think she’s super talented and deserve all the praise she gets and…

The simple beats and heavy bass sounds throughout the album shape a perfect sound. The simplicity of the beats pays its tribute to Blake's soul voice which without any doubt completes an outstanding album that brought some very original to the big music scene. Especially The Wilhelm Scream and the two songs Lindisfarne I and Lindisfarne II show Blake's versatility. Definitely the album that surprised me the most in a very positive way. James Blake has also been very active which is a gigantic plus. The internet swells with EP's by Blake. With all these new songs and EP's Blake has had a busy year and still…

10. Unbroken por Demi Lovato ☆★★★★
Repudiava ela, acreditem! Mas depois que descobri que ela era Little Monster, parece que meus ouvidos se adaptaram a ela lol. O CD é de longe o melhor dela, simplesmente por ela ter deixado aquela fase wannabe rock e mergulhou no pop.
