As anybody who has listened to this show a few times knows, I HATE doing these damn lists. You and I both know the main reason is because I am extremely indecisive. However, I also detest them because no matter how long I make the list (Kyle gets angry when I do more than 10) I still feel like I am slighting albums that don’t deserve it. Then out of the albums I do pick, I have to split hairs over which ones I like more than others only to come up with a list I am not even sure I 100% agree with! In the end, I have to get something together and just say, “Screw it. It’s close enough.”
When you last left your heroes, we gave you our best albums of 2011. Now, we look at the year to come and the bounty of releases that it will bring, providing our hopes, dreams, and expectations of the albums. While doing this, Brian manages to start yet another fight with Kyle, we discuss the changing sound of legacy Swedish acts, and provide the closest thing to breaking news that we may ever have.

Happy New Year freaks!! Before we start digging into the the (hopefully) wonderful goodies that 2012 will bring us (tune in next week for that), we present to you our Top 10 of 2011. This list is the combination of your hosts’ personal lists, bringing you our collective must-buys from this past year. So, you should just listen to this in the car on the way to your local record store, credit card in hand. Or, for you CD haters, you could just surf iTunes or Amazon or wherever while listening, and get your download on. Either way, do as we say and buy these albums!
