3 Jan 2012, 16:04 by darrenstallardAnother year where I think there hasn’t been a huge amount that has grabbed me until I start going through the releases and realise there were so many things I enjoyed a lot for a few weeks and then forgot about.
For me, it’s been a good year for the more traditionally structured, narrative lyric based albums but that may just be down to my age, background and a weakness in my concentration at the moment for more expansive and abstract work.
Consequently, I haven’t been grabbed by much outside of the standard rock/pop/indie idiom this year. There have been some drone, electronic, abstract, collage things that I have enjoyed but quite little that has struck a very strong chord. However, to keep that in context, these are the type of albums that generally take longer to settle under the skin so it’s quite possible a more left-field release than those listed here will end up being a retrospective favourite. This is something that has tended to happen in previous years so no reason to assume it will be different this time.

2 Jan 2012, 21:48 by JohnySaskatunesGood year for music it seems. I had a hard time narrowing the list to twenty. Still there's plenty I didn't hear or never even heard about. Would appreciate any recommendations...
1. Old 97's - The Grand Theatre, Vol. 2
I really enjoyed the first Grand Theatre album and for some reason was expecting Volume Two would be a bit of a let down... was I wrong. It picks up right where Volume One left off and just cranks up the awesomeness. Bursting with raw energy and confidence.
2. Beastie Boys - Hot Sauce Committee Part Two
Probably my favourite Beastie Boys album of all time. They somehow manage to incorporate their many diverse influences – hip hop, punk rock, reggae, jazz - without sounding particularly eclectic. And all the while managing to tread a fine line between silliness and genius. Bonus feel-good points for Adam Yauch returning from cancer treatments to sound as cool and as sharp as ever.
3. Drive-By Truckers - Go-Go Boots

2011 har vært et spennende og givende år for oss med en allmennalternativ musikkinteresse over snittet. Veteraner som PJ Harvey, Wilco, Elbow og The Decemberists har levert varene i år også, band som Tapes ‘n Tapes og The Pains of Being Pure at Heart har tatt sjumilssteg mens flere gamle helter, som Thurston Moore, Lindsey Buckingham og Ryan Adams, viser tegn til gammel storhet. Det har rett og slett kommet så mange gode utgivelser at det har vært omtrent umulig å få med seg alt, noe jeg ikke minst skjønner når jeg leser årslistene til mine kolleger i Panorama-redaksjonen.
Kanskje fordi det skjer såpass mye interessant i flere musikkmiljøer i både Storbritannia, USA og Canada, så havner våre hjemlige helter ørlite i skyggen i denne anmelderens øyne og ører. Bevares, det skjer mye bra her til lands også, men 2011 går nok ikke inn i rockens historiebok som en av de sterkeste norske årgangene. …
