#BestOf2011 : Special Mentions – Reissues


The market of remasters, reissues, deluxe and anniversary edition remained buoyant, sometimes focusing more on the artist’s merchandising than in the music itself. Among this year’s most notorious ones we found timeless classics by Marvin Gaye, Can and Sebadoh, as well as partial or total discographies from the likes of The Books, Throbbing Gristle or Suede.

You can listen to our 2011 REISSUES playlist in Spotify.
