12.28.11 My 2011 List Is Better Than Yours

My 2011 List Is Better Than Yours

Top 10 of what I dug the most from 2011 in no particular order. If you disagree with this then you have horrible taste in music and probably believe the holocaust was a lie.
10*shels
Plains Of The Purple Buffalo


Best Post-Rock album of 2011. From the ground up this thing is completely solid and stands out from its peers.
9Cynic
Carbon-Based Anatomy


Yeah, I count EP's alongside LP's. This shit rules. Really digging the transition to progressive rock, and the inclusion of world music makes me excited for their next LP.
8The Dear Hunter
The Color Spectrum (Complete Collection)


I'm pretty sure a lot of people just auto-five'd this thing because it's 144 minutes long, but if one were to take the time to listen to it from start to finish they'd find that it's worthy of that rating. Everything from the lyrics to the beep-boop electronic moments are fantastic.
7Thrice
Major/Minor


C'mon. It's fuckin' Thrice playing some Blues'd out Rock, consistently reminding us just how good they are. The subtle riffs they let loose throughout the album are great.
6PJ Harvey
Let England Shake


Man, what a voice. She really tortures her vocal chords with the way her voice jumps around here, and it's awesome. The lyricism is amazing and sometimes can be downright shocking.
5Ulcerate
The Destroyers Of All


Okay, they seriously need to hire somebody to come up with better album names. That aside, this album is fucking heavy as shit -- but because of the tense, immersible atmosphere rather than flat out brutality. A breath of fresh air from the loads of boring Death Metal bands in the world.
4The Roots
undun


Holy shit, The Roots did a concept album. It fucking rules, as expected. 'I Remember' may be my favorite single song this year. The four instrumental songs at the end cap off this album in a grand way.
3Laura Stevenson And The Cans
Sit Resist


Transcends the "cute indie girl" sound to write an album that consistently floors me. After getting over falling in love with Laura Stevenson, I think I can say with confidence that this album will be looked back upon as one of the finest releases of the early 2010's. Every song sounds different, yet it works perfectly as a cohesive whole.
2CunninLynguists
Oneirology


Best production on an album this year, hands down. I don't think Kno could have made a more perfect mood and atmosphere for an album named after the study of dreams. Although this isn't as good as A Piece of Strange, this is still heads above the majority of Hip-Hop Music released this year.
1Fleet Foxes
Helplessness Blues


Huge step up from their debut. Less recorded-in-a-cave gang vocals, more varied instrumentation and overall darker mood earns Fantano's number one spot for a reason. Get your shit fucked, Bon Iver.
