I know … you must think – another list that nobody needs and from which you can’t learn anything…
But, after almost 50 shows and more than 1000 songs played in this year shows, I think that I have the right to focus your attention to some albums and songs I preferred to listen during the 2001.
These lists are not here to evaluate the quality of the music we have been listening during the 2001.
If they can help you to find some music you overlooked, my aim is fulfilled. I am sure that I missed more than a few albums and songs, but I’ll fix that in future shows. Feel free to comment these lists.

Albums I preferred to listen during the 2001. without some straight order. Probably I missed something…
