Hopefully I'll find some time to write some little blurbs about some of the albums. 2011 was a really good year in music which made it tough to rate these. Incubus and Dredg really let me down this year with really poor albums. I was big fans of both bands a couple years ago.

    Thanks! I just discovered Red Fang's Murder the Mountains and it's easily in my top 20 after the first listen.
