Unlike some people, I actually waited until the very last day of 2011 to put up my list of 2011 awesomeness. Please note: these are my favorites, not the best, as my taste usually does not line up with the general consensus.
Instead of Top 5’s, I went with Top 4’s. More exclusive.

M83. – Midnight City (from Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming.)
