Top 10 Albums of 2011
There are few things that torment me more than having to pick “favorites.” With out further ado: The List.
1. Banquets – Top Button, Bottom Shelf
2. Restorations – Restorations
3. Dave Hause – Resolutions
4. Frank Turner – England Keep My Bones
5. Chuck Ragan – Covering Ground
6. Static Radio NJ – We Are All Beasts
7. Candy Hearts – Everything’s Amazing & Nobody’s Happy
8. Horrible Crowes – Elsie
9. Red City Radio – The Dangers Of Standing Still
10. Polar Bear Club – Clash Battle Guilt Pride
* Update Jan 8, 2012: It seems somehow I left out Fucked Up “David Comes to Life.” This obviously invalidates my list, but you should go check it out as soon as possible.
There are other albums that I feel belong in the top 10, and the order changes with the hours, if not minutes. But, compelled to make a list, here it is. I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone churns out next!
I’m also really looking forward to seeing next years efforts by Red Collar, The Forecast, and Hot Water Music, among others.
Thank you everyone for making such an enjoyable year of music!
