MPT LPs of the Year – Nos 11-25

Got to call a halt at some point. There’s two or three 2011 LPs kicking around which may well prove good enough to make it into this list when I’ve had a chance to listen to them properly, but I could go on for a while. So, with apologies to Low and United Fruit at…
