2011 Poptarts

Way more great music this year than I'm used to getting.

Good cd, but is mainly this low down because i'm spiting them for breaking up. Also, kind of disappointing : /

Yeah, I know this should be higher, but I just haven't clicked with it yet.
S/T Cassette

Just started listening to this, i'm sure it will get higher once it gets more familiar.

Mastodon being fun again, which makes me a happy Poptart.
25Fucked Up
David Comes to Life
24Crash of Rhinos
Old Raves End

21Beau Navire

Probably my favorite Screamo this year, which is kind of disappointing. Eh, still a very solid cd.
20The Mountain Goats
All Eternals Deck
19The Weeknd
House of Balloons

Sexy sexy sexy.
18 M83
Hurry Up, We're Dreaming
17Fleet Foxes
Helplessness Blues

For some reason I didn't like this the first few times I heard it. I can be pretty stupid some times.
16Florence and the Machine
15Tim Hecker
Ravedeath, 1972
14Manchester Orchestra
Simple Math

Amazing cd that grew off me very fast.
13Touche Amore
Parting the Sea Between Brightness and Me

Nowhere near as good as their To the Beat, but still a very solid album that sounds a million times better in concert.
12 Baton Rouge
Fragments D'eux Memes

It's like, french punk.
11Pianos Become the Teeth
The Lack Long After

Probably going to move down my list at some point, this spot is held right now just because I saw them two days ago and it was one of the most emotionally powerful performances I have ever seen, which make listing to the album a whole lot more interesting.
10Andrew Jackson Jihad
Knife Man

Less immediate than their older stuff, but after giving it some time to settle in plus seeing them play most it live I realized it was just as good as all their previous efforts.
9Bon Iver
Bon Iver, Bon Iver

Somehow sounds just like For Emma without actually sounding anything like it at all.
8Bomb the Music Industry!

This one took a while to grow on me, but by the end of the year I loved just about every single song. Catchy as hell, smart lyrics, and a boatload of passion.
7Laura Stevenson and the Cans
Sit Resist

IT'S SO ADORABLE (and actually good!)
6 The Wonder Years
Suburbia: I've Given You All and Now I'm Nothing

Personal favorite pop-punk of the year, very personal lyrics, tons of catchy hooks, and loads of other fun stuff. This cd defined my summer.
Empty Days and Sleepless Nights

This was my number one for a long time, but it has grown off a bit sadly. Once again, nowhere near the best hardcore of the year, but for some reason this one stuck the hard
No Devolucion

My surprise of the year, which makes their hiatus even more sad : (
Go Tell Fire to the Mountain

This took me a while to fall in love with, but after seeing them play the whole damn thing live in addition to of the fact that I love being Hip As Fuck I was in love.
2Frank Turner
England Keep My Bones

Well duh. This jumped up to second favorite after seeing him live; easily the best performer I have ever seen, and the fact that this is almost as good as Love Ire and Song is more than enough to earn a spot in my top 5
1La Dispute

Heavy fanboying here; loved these guys forever and damn this didn't disappoint. I know that this isn't the best album of the year but it is probably my most listened and most loved, so for that it wins the title of favorite cd of the year.
