ProgSphere’s AwesomeCast: Episode 12 – 2011 Year in Review: xCeptional

The final podcast in ProgSphere’s December series of AwesomeCasts has arrived and by this we round the story of the best 100 albums released in 2011. This episode is called xCeptional, meaning that this podcast doesn’t cover any particular genre subcategory. I covered everything from metal to psychedelic rock to progressive to fusion jazz and electronic, making this AwesomeCast being the most eclectic.

The complete tracklist is below and I won’t spend the words and waste your time who did what, the choice has been made and all you have to do is to enjoy or complain about it. Concerning Prog Sphere, the only thing that remains is the 8th edition of Progstravaganza series of compilation, which comes tomorrow and that would be all from us (me in particular) in more than successful 2011.

I will keep on doing AwesomeCasts in 2012 as well, and what I have planned for the first podcast in the year of the apocalypse is selecting 60′s/70′s obscure various rock/pop bands, ripping some of the vinyls from my home collection. Hope you like the idea.

Thanks to everybody out there who listened our podcasts, downloaded our compilations, read our interviews or reviews or specials, or even stubled upon our website from any reasons in 2011 – we wish you very happy new year and many yet to come.

See you in 2012!
