Bring On Twenty Eleven...

It's all about the New Year right now and 2011 looks like it's going to be a year to remember. At least in terms of music. Not, you know, in my life or anything because who knows what's going to happen there. Probably not a whole lot. There'll be some booze, maybe a nice job... tacos. There'll be plenty of tacos. But let's talk about the music. Here's my five most anticipated releases for the New Year... hopefully we actually get to hear all of them!

Stevie Nicks

Nicks' as yet untitled album is expected to drop in March and I couldn't be more excited. She's going into that whole Gran Torino stage of her career so expect her to pull out all the stops. Hopefully she'll draw on some experiences she had during the crazy old Fleetwood Mac days. That would be awesome.

Fiona Apple

Can you believe that it's been six years since Extraordinary Machine came out? SIX YEARS people! Luckily it's been confirmed via Billboard that her next album is due in the sometime around the second quarter of 2011! 

Foo Fighters

I should be a bit suspicious about Dave Grohl's claims that the new Foo Fighters album is going to draw on more of a Nirvana like style, but I can't. I'm intrigued. If it's good, it'll be very good. And if it's bad... you know the rest.

Amy Winehouse

This kinda needs to happen. Viva La Winehouse!

Lady Gaga

If you're not at least a little (bi)curious about what we're going to get on Born This Way, I'm pretty sure you're not human. There's been no stopping the Gaga express over the past couple of years and I don't see that changing in 2011. Is it going to be the masterpiece that the Haus of Gaga claim? Will she secure another Grammy nomination for Album of the Year, making it 3 for 3? We'll know by the end of 2011...

So, that's only a brief sample of what I'm eager to hear in 2011. I didn't even mention how excited I am about the possibility of hearing new Garbage, Missy Elliott, No Doubt, Santigold, Outkast, The Strokes, Justice, Franz Ferdinand or even Britney Spears. What about you? Who do you want to hear in 2011?
