1. Abstrakt Algebra - Abstrakt Algebra
2. Adagio - Underworld
3. Akercocke - Words That Go Unspoken, Deeds That Go Undone

2011 Stuff I Spun A Lot (last update: February 2012)

In order roughly, by the number of spins. A lot = A LOT. So when I give ten more spins to the rest of the albums I've listened to, and forgot to rate most probably, this will grow larger. Or not. I'm making this for me anyway.

1. Subsignal - Touchstones
2. Symphony X - Iconoclast
3. Amorphis - The Beginning Of Times
4. Pain Of Salvation - Road Salt Two
5. Iced Earth - Dystopia

2011: Favourite To Least

Purely subjective list based on personal preferences for the year, unrelated to mass opinion of an album or a band's abilities (e.g. Trivium, Oranssi Pazuzu) - many albums lined up to listen to so will increase in size. Also, not entirely in order, middle order mainly just an approximation.

1. Sylosis - Edge Of The Earth
2. Protest The Hero - Scurrilous
3. Infestus - E x I s t
4. Amorphis - The Beginning Of Times
5. Ouroboros - Glorification Of A Myth

The Highlights Of 2011

Just a humble list of albums released this year that I found really enjoyable. There is no real order in here, as it's too hard for me to decided which album deserve, e.g., a 1st place and which - a 13th. So... Just listen to all these good pieces of music and enjoy!

1. Septicflesh - The Great Mass
2. Opeth - Heritage
3. Pain Of Salvation - Road Salt Two
4. Primordial - Redemption At The Puritan's Hand
5. Riverside - Memories In My Head

MMXI: Handpicked by MechanisT

Best (and worst) of 2011 (thus far).
Partially ordered (thus far).
Subject to change, as I see fit.

What a wonderful year, I have to say! This year has seen me expand my tastes like never before. Discovered so many great new acts, while many metal stalwarts delivered the goods as expected. A truly memorable year, and one that I will forever cherish, as far as me being an avid music enthusiast is concerned.

1. Septicflesh - The Great Mass
2. Omnium Gatherum - New World Shadows
3. Sylosis - Edge Of The Earth
4. Heavenwood - Abyss Masterpiece
5. Insomnium - One For Sorrow

Beginner's Guide To Building A Prog Collection (Standards, And A Few Unorthodox Choices)

1. Jethro Tull - Thick As A Brick
2. King Crimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King
3. Rush - Moving Pictures
4. IQ - The Road Of Bones
5. Opeth - Still Life
