It's been a really good year, and a really bad year. Forget music. Our hearts are with everyone in Japan who suffered even the slightest bit in the tragedy that was the earthquake. What we outside of Japan can be thankful for is that in true Japanese spirit, they have overcome and have continued to give their incredible contribution to the world. We only celebrate a small part of it; namely, their music. Thank You Japan!
So now that we've gotten in the spirit, let's take a look and listen to what the GK staff thinks are the best releases from the world of JPOP and JROCK from the entire year of 2011. Hopefully you agree. If you don't, we hope you at least give our suggestions a shot and let us know what you think!
And now, notes. :)
