My Carnival 2011 soca picks

There’s a lot of good music out there this year, methinks. These are my favourites for 2K11. Would love to hear yours, since I’m sure there are any I haven’t heard, forgot, or should revisit! 🙂

So in alphabetical order, but categorised a la Soca Monarch…except for a list of things I’m ashamed to say are growing on me. *sigh* I’ve put asterisks by the ones ah like bad bad bad.
