- Sonic Generations was definitely my favorite soundtrack of the year but since the official release happened in 2012, I'll save it for next year's thread.
- Three of my top five were dream-come-true releases (pun intended) I never thought I'd see in my lifetime. 2011 was awesome just because of that.
- My top five are all solid listens, not a bad track on any of them. Except disc 3 of Sonic 1&2 of course, ick.
- ROCK-MEN, Play For Japan, and Dracula Tribute Vol.1 each have a handful of amazing tracks but the rest range from average to good.
- Even with that said, I still enjoy my bottom five more than my honorable mentions overall.
- My vote for "Dead Island Original Game Soundtrack" includes the trailer theme and the "Who Do You Voodoo" single.
- SDATCHER and FFXIII-2 OST will most likely make my top 10 once I hear them.
