Favorite Albums of 2011

Here are my top 20 favorite albums of 2011. Again, not necessarily the best, but the ones I tended to go back to more than some other ones. Thought this was a pretty great year too! I had a tough time keeping the list at twenty. If anyone would like to take a listen to 60 of my favorite songs of 2011, I made a Spotify playlist you can listen to HERE. A song from most of the albums listed below (not every album is on Spotify just yet) is on there.

  1. The Big RourJoy Formidable
  2. Yuck (Self-titled)
  3. Hurry Up We’re DreamingM83
  4. Bon Iver (Self-titled)
  5. The King is Dead – The Decemberists
  6. No Witch – The Cave Singers
  7. The Cold StillThe Boxer Rebellion
  8. Passive Me, Aggressive YouNaked and Famous
  9. Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds (Self-titled)
  10. The Year of HibernationYouth Lagoon
  11. CeremonialsFlorence + the Machine
  12. King of LimbsRadiohead
  13. 21Adele
  14. WallsAn Horse
  15. HystericalClap Your Hands Say Yeah
  16. The Walking Sleep – Katie Herzig
  17. En t’attendant – Melanie Laurent
  18. Young LoveKye Kye
  19. Mylo XylotoColdplay
  20. Burst ApartThe Antlers

An honorable mention to Birdy’s self-titled debut– the only reason being that I didn’t include it is because it’s primarily a collection of covers. But an incredible collection of covers sung by one of the most powerful fifteen-year-old voices I’ve ever heard.

Some of my most anticipated albums of 2012 come out this month! The new (and sadly last) David Crowder*Band album, new Ingrid Michaelson, and (FINALLY) Lana Del Rey‘s new full-length.

    Very pleased to see the inclusion of Noel Gallagher, although the year’s ultimate release of music superiority, that clearly being The Twilight Singer’s Dynamite Steps, is unaccountably missing. I can only assume a software glitch …
