|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.
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.
Let Yourself Be Huge
|4||The United Sons of Toil|
When the Revolution Comes, Everything Will Be Beau
|5||Crash of Rhinos|
|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.
|7||The Black Keys|
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
An Innocent Orphan In The Post-Modern World
The Archer and the Owle
|16|| ||Mr. Tough|
Wugazi: The 13th Chamber
|18||Iron & 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|
|21||The Mountain Goats|
All Eternals Deck
|23||Toxic Holocaust |
Conjure and Command
Set The Dial
In and Out of Youth and Lightness
|28||Manchester Orchestra |
|29||A Lot Like Birds|
This was, simply put, a very well written album. Everything seemed to be well
thought out and the album art is great too.
Echoes of Silence
House of Balloons
New History Warfare, Vol 2: Judges
The amazing things this man can do with a giant saxophone. And thats not an
|34||The Dear Hunter|
The Color Spectrum (Complete Collection)
I love how all these Eps can stand on their own, and yet they fit together very
|36||And So I Watch You From Afar|
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.
David Comes to Life
|38||TV on the Radio|
Nine Types of 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.
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.
|41||Russian Circles |
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.
