Top Ten Albums Of 2011 (so Far)
10Lady GaGa
Born This Way

She annoys the hell outta me as a person, but I'm a fan of GaGa's music. However, with all of the hype, Born This Way should've topped this list. It's still good, but nowhere near as good as it could've and should've been. Fav Tracks: Born This Way, Judas, The Edge Of Glory.
9Panda Bear

Doesn't top the damn-near perfect Person Pitch, but it's still pretty amazing. My faith in Animal Collective and its off-shoots remains firm... Fav Tracks: You Can Count On Me, Tomboy, Slow Motion, Surfer's Hymn, Drone
The King Of Limbs

And as my faith in Animal Collective is being reassured, so has my faith in the never-failing genius of Radiohead, not exactly their best (certainly their shortest), but it's head and shoulders above most music today and all of the imitators. Fav Tracks: Bloom, Morning Mr Magpie, Little By Little, Lotus Flower, Give Up The Ghost
7Wu Lyf
Go Tell Fire To The Mountain

I still need to give the album a helluva lot more listens, after three full listens, this album continues to sound better and better and better. Fav Tracks: L Y F, Cave Song, Summas Bliss, We Bros
6Lykke Li
Wounded Rhymes

So far Lykke Li seems like Sweden's answer to all the people that unfairly dismiss it as the country that is responsible for ABBA (which isn't a bad thing at all). Fav Tracks: Youth Knows No Pain, I Follow Rivers, Love Out Of Lust, Rich Kids Blues, I Know Places
5Foo Fighters
Wasting Light

They've never made a shitty album, yet they never made a kickass record. It's been mostly great or average records, until now. Wasting Light is proof that rock and roll is still alive and can kick ass and take names. Fav Tracks: Bridge Burning, Rope, These Days, Back & Forth, A Matter Of Time, Walk
4Tyler, The Creator

Saw the Yonkers music video, freaked the fuck out, then got all the OFWGKTA mixtapes, and all I could think about was stabbing Bruno Mars in his goddamn esophagus. The torch has been passed, THANK GOD. Fav Tracks: Goblin, Yonkers, Radicals, Transylvania, Tron Cat, Sandwitches
3Gang Gang Dance
Eye Contact

The discovery for me of 2011 has to be Gang Gang Dance. I'm kicking myself for not having gotten in to them earlier, but at least I was able to hear the weirdness that is Eye Contact first. Fav Tracks: Glass Jar, Adult Goth, Chinese High, Mindkilla, Sacer, Thru And Thru
2Bon Iver
Bon Iver, Bon Iver

It may feel like it ends a little too quickly, but Bon Iver's follow-up to For Emma, Forever Ago proves Justin Vernon can do no wrong. Fav Tracks: Perth, Minnesota, WI, Holocene, Wash., Calgary
1Fleet Foxes
Helplessness Blues

The band behind the best album of 2008 returns to set the bar for the best of 2011 with Helplessness Blues. Fav Tracks: Montezuma, Bedouin Dresses, Battery Kinzie, Helplessness Blues, Lorelai, Someone You'd Admire
