#02 John Maus – We Must Become the Pitless Censors of Ourselves

2011 saw some greats come back to old form (the Strokes) and new faces, hello, John Maus. Just like every year, there’s those disappointments that don’t live up to the hype. I won’t be “Watching the Throne” nor will I be dancing to the new album from Justice. This is always the toughest part of the year trying to remember what you liked and not to leave any of the ones you liked off of the list. Let us toast to the year that was and what is to come.
