In celebration of our 'Albums of the Year' list we decided to get in contact with all the artists on our top 30 for a short Q&A. We sent them all the same five questions, from what their favourite album of the year is, to what they'd change about their album.

Every day during the voting period we'll post a couple of these interviews so that you can get to know the artists a bit better.

Remember, you can vote on your favourite album of the year here.

How do you feel looking back on the album? Is there anything you'd change about it?

It was an experience that helped us to this point we're at today and we're feling pretty good about that. No regrets.

Tell us something about the album, or the recording of the album, that isn't common knowledge!

hmmmmm, trick question, we recorded it in three days, half of it is concept???

What's your favourite album of 2011?

My favourite record of 2011 was released in 1971 :)

What's the best thing you've done this year, besides releasing the album?

Having a kid.

What are your plans for 2012?

Riding the snake lizard king style, but a bit more mellow :)
