That's a reasonably eclectic year for me.  Black Stone Cherry's Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea drove them to the top of my chart, and the endlessly hilarious Professor Elemental got his creator Paul Alborough second spot.

My top ten are well split between old favourites, Christina, Muse, The Unthanks, and listening that was new to me in 2011 like country rocker Stacie Collins, BSC, Professor Elemental's wonderful steampunk chap hop and Dessa's clever and articulate rap.

Further down my charts are well filled with lots of old favourites - try as I might to search out new and weird music I just can't help coming back to the likes of The Wildhearts, Metallica,  Megadeth, Led Zeppelin, Madness or Siouxsie and the Banshees.  New acts that push their way into my most listened of the year included Manu Chao's upbeat Freanch/Spanish/Basque folk pop, Nigeria's pop/rnb singer Nneka, Czech composer Antonín Dvořák and the rock bands Voodoo Six and Million Dollar Reload.
