And then there’s my favourite album of 2011, the second release this year from a peerless icon who has always forged ahead on her own path of sonic enlightenment. Though that first LP proved controversial, sparking its fair share of debates with regards to its qualities and merit, the promise of a second album in time for the Christmas did well to assuage any misgivings from those left unimpressed. And with its wintry fables of heartbreak and chilling beauty, featuring a snowman lothario and wayward yeti amongst its cast of characters, it helped to prove just why we fell in love with this enigmatic girl in the first place. So, at the premier point of my chart, I present…

1. 50 Words for Snow by Kate Bush
Metacritic Score: 85

And just to put a geeky pin in this horrid bouquet of chart madness…

My Top 50 Album's Average Metacritic Score: 76

Happy New Year everyone... Hope you have a great 2012! xxxo
