  1. Mooie lijstjes. Luc Peters, Carsten Nicolai en Simon Reynolds noemen platen die er bij mij nét buiten zijn gevallen. Moet toch zeggen dat 2011 een erg goed popjaar is geweest. Althans, wanneer je het begrip pop breed neemt.

  2. Klopt. 2011 was inderdaad een mooi en gevarieerd popjaar. Kom nog veel onbekend spul tegen in andermans lijstjes. Lang leve Spotify om een en ander te gaan beluisteren.
