And a very special mention goes to Joie de Vivre's Final Show recording, they're by far the band I've listened most to in 2011 (according to my last.fm) and I'm really happy this final show wasn't really the last one, they're coming to Europe in 2012, don't miss it! :)

I decided not to list my disappointments this year after getting e-mailed by bands to give them another chance last year... Nothing personal of course, I just can't be touched by everything I hear, to those bands I'll just say: as long as you're making music with all your heart, keep doing it!
