The RA staff takes a look back at 2011.
And you thought we were done talking about 2011? Not a chance. Music writers can't get enough of the listmaking, the haggling, the debating and everything else that goes along with the end of the year. That's why we invited some Berlin-based contributors (and a good friend from the venerated Groove) down to RA HQ for a chat about the topics and trends that defined the past 365 days. Our talk covered just about anything that made our year-end polls and everything that came close as well. And, even though it's two hours, it felt like we were barely scratching the surface. Enjoy this second RA Exchange where the writers take over.
