Favourite Albums Of 2011

In no particular order
1Zee Avi

She's pretty, music's pretty. I approve.

Aside from the horrific artwork this album is tops. They do sound quite similar to dinosaur jr. but dammit the tunes are good so I forgive them.

I like to relax when I'm coming down.
4Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

I'm gonna go out on a limb and suggest that Reznors subtle instrumental work trumps his exceedingly unsubtle NIN work. Creepy stuff.
5Submotion Orchestra
Finest Hour

Massive Attack style trip hop. But more romantic and soulful.
Collapse Into Now

R.E.M. have had something to prove over their last two studio efforts and have been largely successful. A suitable swansong.
Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will

I just really like Mogwai.
I Was Here For a Moment, Then I Was Gone

Upbeat, emotional instrumental hard rock. Less metal riffs and vocals than last two albums.
The Hunter

More concise than last album and more hard rock with some prog rock moments. Mastodon Rocks.
10 M83
Hurry Up, We're Dreaming

Poptastic shoegaze electro. Should be the biggest band in the world!
The King of Limbs

I hate talking about Radiohead. They're Radiohead.
12Bon Iver
Bon Iver, Bon Iver

Filling out the sound of the debut album with a full band and eighties electro.
13Laura Stevenson and the Cans
Sit Resist

Sometimes I listen to a band and like the music and then singer puts me right off. This does not happen with Laura Stevenson.
14 King Creosote & Jon Hopkins
Diamond Mine

Sounds real.
15Eddie Vedder
Ukulele Songs

Intimate stuff from the Pearl Jam frontman.
16And So I Watch You From Afar

I want to be in their gang.
17Tom Waits
Bad As Me

Kiss Me is an awesome, awesome track.
18Son Lux
We Are Rising

One man and his imagination is a formidable thing.
19This Will Destroy You
Tunnel Blanket

More atmospheric than their previous album but just as enthralling.
