There are, of course, loads of other great bands that I've had to exclude from this piece, and doubtless plenty more that I've completely forgotten about, but that only reaffirms my point that we potentially have quite a year in front of us. Some of those mentioned will deliver, others quite frankly won't, but even those failures will most likely be made up for by unexpected successes from artists we wouldn't have thought capable. The promise of such ups and downs make it all the more exciting to be a music fan in 2012, and I for one can't wait to get started.
Happy New Year!
