Keyblade's 2011

Another 2011 list, yawn
15BADBADNOTGOOD
BBNG


BBNG is a great blend of hip-hop and jazz. Oh and that Zelda medley is
ridiculous.
14CunninLynguists
Oneirology


A hip-hop album with a very distinct atmosphere, it isn't often you can say
that. The dreamy atmosphere really plays off the loose concept of this
album.
13Esoteric
Paragon of Dissonance


Funeral doom that is both crushing and melodic. Drags a bit though.
12Kashiwa Daisuke
88


Nowhere near as mindblowing as Program Music I, but it's still a great
album. Using only the piano, Daisuke crafts some of his most personal
tracks.
11Beardfish
Mammoth


Another band that went in a more hard rock direction. Thankfully it is only
present on a couple of tracks. The rest are your trademark Beardfish 70's
prog homage...this time with the welcome addition of the saxophone.
10The Devin Townsend Project
Ghost


Hevy Devy's ambient album. Probably the best album this project has to
offer. Though I'll admit, it wore off me considerably since it came out. Lush,
tranquil songs and masterful use of the flute.
9Scale the Summit
The Collective


Excellent guitar solos and general instrumentation. This album rarely
becomes stale. Instrumental prog metal at its best.
8Fell Voices
Untitled


Great atmospheric black metal. Definitely a better alternative to the new
Wolves in the Throne Room.
7Fair to Midland
Arrows and Anchors


Not as good as Fables, but this album contains some of their best
moments. This album also took on a more hard-rock sound, which I wasn't
really digging.
6Mastodon
The Hunter


Masto-pop, Masto-lite whatever you wanna call it, this is it. Their most
stripped down album is also one of their most solid.
5Maybeshewill
I Was Here For a Moment, Then I Was Gone


The catchier side to post-rock. Tons of sweet melodies, and this album
made great background music for me over the months.
4Myrath
Tales of the Sands


This album sees Myrath up the production significantly, and their sound
really benefits. Short, concise, catchy prog metal tracks from front to back.
3Swarms
Old Raves End


This album's got the best use of Beyonce's voice to date on the track
Chapel. That is all.
2Steven Wilson
Grace for Drowning


This album really polarizes opinions on sputnik, and i'm of the opinion that
this ruled. Admittedly, it could have done without the second disc.
1Laura Stevenson
Sit Resist


One of the most endearing albums I've ever heard. I had my reservations
before listening, but this ended after the first track. Never too cutesy, and
always fun.
