Top-20 countdown - my best albums for 2011

So the countdown has arrived at the end for one more year. It was a blast again. So much fun, not only in picking one's list but also discovering new music through other people's lists (lots of work to do there), feeling happy when a favourite took a high place in someone else's list or piqued when it didn't. The final results of the total tally from the 151 (maybe more, I'm not entirely sure about this number) bloggers participating, will be announced tomorrow night (Marcos and Panayiotis are still tallying as I write this post) at a great party in Bios in Athens. Until then, here is my final list - and also a nice musical Christmas tree of all the covers from the 20 albums on it - the bottom one is no.20 and then you go up starting always on the left side of each row (click on the image to see it bigger). Have a great holiday season and I sincerely hope to repeat this next year!
