We wanted to make a list, a top-21 list, but we think order doesn’t really matter to us anymore. It just about impact, and we aren’t talking about the impact that these songs had on the world-at-large, but the songs that we cherished, remembered, spent time with, and really felt defined our lives in 2011. Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, Girls, Radiohead, Noel Gallagher, Dirty Beaches, Beach Fossils, Real Estate, and Woods all called our stereo home, while Madlib, Shabazz Palaces, and the Beastie Boys all had their major moments with us on various drives/road trips/moments in the city this year. So without further ado, here are 25 songs that we feel entered our canon of favorites this year. Enjoy, and welcome to 2012. —Raymond Brown / The Citrus Report staff

Atlas Sound, his side project, ain’t bad either, and you can stream the Atlanta man’s Parallax here.
