MY BEST 40 ALBUMS OF THE 2011


Breve intro: ovviamente ci sono molti dischi che non sono stati inclusi. Non per un loro particolare demerito ma, perché la musica a disposizione è tanta mentre il tempo per ascoltarla è poco. Due esempi in tal caso sono gli ultimi lavori di The Roots, The Black Keys e Wilco. Aggiungo che dopo la 10° posizione potrebbero essere tutti i dischi a pari merito ma, stiamo giocando e quindi li ho messi in fila.
