Top 30 Albums of 2011


Gen 3 2012, 2:00

Listen, I could have done 25. But if I did, then I would also have to make a separate Top Songs of 2011 list, and I just can't keep making these sort of commitments.

Also, I'm aware I'm missing some "big players" (hey Panda Bear!) but I just didn't get around to listening to a whole bunch of stuff - Mumford and Sons ain't gonna loop itself... geez.

Without further adieu... from FAVES (top) to the ones i kinda just felt sad about leaving out (bottom).
