Looks a good selection, as usual :smt023 I've only got about 6 of these, as 2011 marked the year I lost interest in new music.

Another good-looking list! These are the ones which I'll probably investigate in a few years' time ( :lol: ), and you've also got a few others which I've randomly picked up cheap (The Strokes, White Lies, Noah & The Whale).

BUT, to whittle them down my TOP 3 ALBUMS of 2011 are...

1. WITHIN TEMPTATION - " THE UNFORGIVING"...Quite simply THE most perfect rock album you'll hear for a long time..not one single bad song on the album..with FASTER being the gem..a quality album, and well worth adding to your collection.

2. AMARANTHE - "AMARANTHE"...as far as symphionic rock goes, this IS the album of the year in that genre...unique, with 3 singers, but the album is a wonderful debut from a band that will just get bigger and bigger..live they are amazing.

3. BLACK STONE CHERRY - "BETWEEN THE DEVIL & THE DEEP BLUE SEA"..what more cn i say about this band, just that they get better and better with each album, which is something..a metal version of Lynyrd Skynyrd, just epic stuff.
