It's that time of the year again when we look back on the year in music and single out our favourite records that have been released since January. Today, we kick off Q's Top 20 Albums of 2011
with the latest offering by Polaris Prize-winning Toronto hardcore band F---ed Up
. The album is called David Comes to Life
, and it's an epic rock opera presented in four acts, and set in a dystopian, industrial England. The band stopped by Studio Q in June to discuss and perform from the record (starts at 29:50)
and lay down a web-exclusive performance
for us. From that record, check out their video for the song "The Other Shoe".Check back each day as we count down Q's Top 20 Albums of 2011, leading up to the reveal of #1 on Friday, December 30.
