2011 - The Albums Of The Year

So it;s THAT time again. All the music magazines, websites and blogs are publishing their end-of-year lists and so far it seems that PJ Harvey's disappointingly average album 'Let England Shake' seems to be the most popular recorded piece of work this year. Not on this blog I'm afraid Polly....

In a short while you can listen to the latest edition of my radio show 'Mr Scott:Music', which this week is a 2011 Review Special, featuring some of the year's best tunes, the year's big music news stories and a Top Ten countdown of 2011's best albums. And from today you can read about the 50 best albums of 2011 as I publish numbers 50 to 25...

But first a brief round up of the year's reissues, compilations and most overrated albums....
