My Best Of 2011

These aren't the best of 2011 because I haven't heard all the albums of r2011. There are still rso many that i need to get to. This is just a list of rthe best albums that I've heard from 2011.
1Incubus
If Not Now, When?


This was very disappointing, but the last four songs really saved this for me. The only real reason I bought this is because I'm a huge Incubus fan.
2Primus
Green Naugahyde
3Cloudkicker
Let Yourself Be Huge
4The United Sons of Toil
When the Revolution Comes, Everything Will Be Beau
5Crash of Rhinos
Distal
6 The Odious
That Night a Forest Grew


The description on this band's bandcamp page was death metal and jazz. So needless to say i was confused and intrigued. Since it was free, i gave it a chance. And it was surprisingly good, kind of trailed off towards the end, but it mixed the metal aspects(more of this) and the jazz aspects pretty well.
7The Black Keys
El Camino


A little worse than Brothers, but still a great release. Still gives me hope that they will once again put out an album that consists of just guitar, drums and a shit ton of blues.
8Death Grips
Exmilitary
9Love Axe
Phenomenomenons
10Love American
Love American
11Trophywife
An Innocent Orphan In The Post-Modern World
12The Weeknd
Thursday
13Deftones
Covers
14Thou
The Archer and the Owle
15Embers
Shadows
16 Mr. Tough
Mr. Tough
17Wugazi
Wugazi: The 13th Chamber
18Iron & Wine
Kiss Each Other Clean


I read way too much hate about this album. Who gives a shit if Sam Beam used more than 2 instruments, went electronic, and used the big budget from his major label to produce a damn fine album.
19 Mother Grizzly
Hunt
20Dispatch
Dispatch EP
21The Mountain Goats
All Eternals Deck
22The Antlers
Burst Apart
23Toxic Holocaust
Conjure and Command
24Black Tusk
Set The Dial
25Orwell
AVOHFASIH
26Young Widows
In and Out of Youth and Lightness
27Battles
Gloss Drop
28Manchester Orchestra
Simple Math
29A Lot Like Birds
Conversation Piece


This was, simply put, a very well written album. Everything seemed to be well thought out and the album art is great too.
30Mastodon
The Hunter
31The Weeknd
Echoes of Silence
32The Weeknd
House of Balloons
33Colin Stetson
New History Warfare, Vol 2: Judges


The amazing things this man can do with a giant saxophone. And thats not an innuendo.
34The Dear Hunter
The Color Spectrum (Complete Collection)


I love how all these Eps can stand on their own, and yet they fit together very well.
35Giraffes? Giraffes!
Pink Magick
36And So I Watch You From Afar
Gangs


It's so awesome to listen to this band grow and mature. This album makes me want to travel to the U.K. to see these guys live.
37Fucked Up
David Comes to Life
38TV on the Radio
Nine Types of Light
39Foo Fighters
Wasting Light


Even though I'm a bit bias because I'm a foo fighters fanboy, I love this album, and it was a great release.
40Thrice
Major/Minor


I really thought this album was all hype, but man was i wrong. The production on this album was great and mixed with great songwriting equals a great album.
41Russian Circles
Empros
42BADBADNOTGOOD
BBNG


If this is the future of jazz, I cannot wait for it to get here. This album has inspired me more in one listen than another album this year. It has infected my brain, and I am looking forward for when they release an album of all originals.
