THE AMERICANA ROCK MIX TOP 24 OF 2011

Yeah, yeah. It’s that time of year again. Everyone is doing it, and so am I. My top albums of 2011.

This was a really tough list to gather. 2011 was crammed with amazing music, so that just made the decision making that much harder.

34 people e-mailed and messaged me with suggestions of what my final top number should be this year. Suggestions ranged from “Top 10” to “Top 53”! That wasn’t going to happen anyway. But the most common number suggested was “Top 24”.

I didn’t implement any rules into this years list. As that was too much of a pain last year. So, it all comes down to what I was personally listening to the most this year.

Hopefully you’ll find an album or two on here that aren’t on anyone else’s lists.

This list is in no particular order.

    Great list.
    I am always on the look out for new music and Von always manages to come up with something different.

    Thanks for all the hard work.
