The most average releases of October 2011

Post Author:

Since October is a big month in the “music business”* cycle, so it's usually the one time of year when we look forward to emblazoning names like “Coldplay” and “Justice” into the web pages of dear Impose.

Bonus: Guess which November record made it on the list preemptively, so that we may commit repeat-ehh in 30 days.
