Top 5 of Everything 2011

2011 has been a crazy year for me, spending most of it playing with No Strings Attached and ending it with getting my dream job but there has been some pretty damn good entertainment too.
Here is my top 5 of everything:

Music

  1. And So I Watch You From AfarGangs – Contender for greatest album of all time for me, It’s so meaty yet uplifting too.
  2. Eye EmpireMoment of Impact – On first listen it sounds pretty similar to SoIL or Drowning Pool yet I’ve been addicted to it all year round.
  3. Andy JamesAndy James – Comfortably the greatest shred guitarist on the planet and this is his first properly produced album.
  4. Explosions in the SkyTake Care, Take Care, Take Care – Masters of prog rock almost equal “All of a sudden I miss everyone” with this album.
  5. CloudkickerLet Yourself Be Strong – One man band that usually plays crunchy prog metal but this acoustic EP is pure class. “It’s inside me, and I’m inside it” is my song of the year!

Games

  1. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
  2. Minecraft
  3. Portal 2
  4. Total War: Shogun 2
  5. Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Man these 5 games were hard to order and I just noticed that they are all sequals apart from Minecraft 🙂

TV

  1. Canadian GP
  2. Breaking Bad series 4
  3. Chinese GP
  4. Him and Her Series 2
  5. Japanese GP

Lots of F1 races here, the racing has been fantastic start to end 😀

Films

Meh – I think Source Code was the only film I saw this year at the cinema – at least next year is looking good!
