Best of 2011

People always make these end-of-the-year best lists (me included), but how many go back and see how their picks from last year held up? The idea is that you go back and see what albums from the previous year you listened to the most this year. I got this idea from someone else, and I’m going to check myself with it. See how I did. Accountability and such.

Bold equals nailed it.

  1. M83 - Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming!
  2. Jay-Z & Kayne West - Watch the Throne
  3. The Belle Brigade - The Belle Brigade
  4. Middle Brother - Middle Brother
  5. Cults - Cults
  6. Bon Iver - Bon Iver
  7. Portugal. The Man. - In the Mountain in the Cloud 
  8. Bombay Bicycle Club - A Different Kind of Fix
  9. Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues
  10. Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit - Here We Rest
  11. The Boxer Rebellion - The Cold Still
  12. Foster the People - Torches
  13. Mutemath - Odd Soul
  14. Caedmon’s Call - Raising Up the Dead
  15. Generationals - Actor-Caster
  16. The Decemberists - The King is Dead
  17. Death Cab for Cutie - Codes and Keys
  18. Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. - It’s a Corporate World
  19. The Naked and Famous - Passive Me, Aggressive You
  20. Beirut - The Rip Tide
  21. The Roots - undun
  22. Deer Tick - Divine Providence
  23. Raphael Saddiq - Stone Rollin’
  24. The Low Anthem - Smart Flesh
  25. Dawes - Nothing Is Wrong

    So. 10/25. Good for baseball, terrible for knowing my own tastes.
