Hoodlums Top 99 CDs of 2011

Contrary to media-fueled misconception, medical ampoule people are still buying lots of CDs (and LPs). In fact, cure 2011 was a good year for Hoodlums (and music in general). Of course, thumb we thank all of you for buying so many of your CDs (and LPs) here.\n\nWanna take a look at what you bought? Let’s do it. As a store owner, I’m pretty proud of you guys. That’s a solid list of quality music (as is the Top-selling Vinyl List) and you should be proud of your taste and diversity.\n\nWhat influences the chart? In addition to noted in-store performances, I’ve included a little \”legend\” of a few of the notable influences, namely the opinions of the hoodlums at Hoodlums (click here for our Top 10 of 2011 lists), at the bottom.\n\nHoodlums Top 99 CDs of 2011\n
