Best Of 2011

More great releases
The Golden Age Of Apocalypse

Love his sense of melody + FlyLo production

Very fast, heavy album
28Neutral Milk Hotel
Ferris Wheel on Fire

Some brilliant songs on this with raw production (it may be live recordings...)
27The Antlers
Burst Apart

Thought this was pretty bland at first, but in the right mood you begin to appreciate the atmosphere
26Trap Them
Darker Handcraft

First time I'd listened to a full record by these guys, hopefully there will be a new one soon
25Panda Bear

A lot more poppy than Person Pitch, not as good but still has some great tracks

Lacking in originality but I find myself returning to this every now and then just for the tunes
23Big K.R.I.T.

This guy is still under appreciated.
22Real Estate

Like with Yuck, this style has been done before but these guys just execute it so well, amazing summer record.
Take The Kids Off Broadway

They may never top this

Great, great producer. Love his EPs as well (Step in Shadows)
19Andy Stott
Passed Me By

Hard to split with We Stay Together but this one just got there first. Such a physical sound
Roads to Judah

Violet is one of my favourite tracks from 2011
17 Gil Scott-Heron and Jamie XX
We're New Here

Great collab
Street Halo

In retrospect a very odd release for Burial as the production is unusually clean and seemingly sequenced
15 M83
Hurry Up, We're Dreaming

Almost bored of Midnight City now but what a tune it was initially
14James Blake
James Blake

Not given enough credit for this release. Great use of space and reverb
13The Field
Looping State of Mind

Not his best (which many suggest) but again a mesmerizing set of trance tracks
Old Raves End

Thanks Dev
11Kendrick Lamar

Has been overshadowed by Good Kid, but is also one of the best Hip-Hop releases this decade. Smooth production, mix of flows
and very lyrical.

One of his more focused efforts. Love Florence
9St. Vincent
Strange Mercy

Still her best imo
8Oneohtrix Point Never

Amazing sampling on this record. Very interesting listen
7PJ Harvey
Let England Shake

Still return to this every now and then. Amazing how consistent she has been
6Nicolas Jaar
Space Is Only Noise

Music for a Space Nightclub. Middle stretch is impeccable (includes Keep Me There)
5Bon Iver
Bon Iver, Bon Iver

Some of the second half is weaker than the first, but with tracks like Perth, Holocene, Towers and Michicant its understandable.
4Tim Hecker
Ravedeath, 1972

Mixture of ambient, noise, drone. In the Fog is incredible, this whole album flies by tbh
3Fleet Foxes
Helplessness Blues

Such a beautiful and soulful album. Hard to see how they can top this without a slight reinvention, they have perfected this
2Danny Brown

Everyone talks about Danny Brown as if he is merely an amusing crackhead. Whilst his interviews are generally really funny
this album has to be one of the most acutely observed portraits of life in Detroit + one of the most emotional tales of personal
struggle. 30 is one of the best performances ever by a rapper
The King of Limbs

Many people say if this was by any other band it wouldn't have got any attention. Really though, the opposite is true, just listen
to the technical ability, melodies and song writing on display. Bloom, Little by Little, Lotus Flower, Codex + Separator are all top
drawer tracks. Also, people complaining about the length are just retarded. Loads of amazing and acclaimed records are far
shorter than this
