Popular Japanese Music In 2011

Lately, I've noticed a lot of reviews suddenly appearing for Japanese releases so it seems that there's some interest out there. Here's a list of my top 50 from last year. First link is generally an official video and the second is either my favorite song from the album, a good live performance or just whatever's available on youtube.
