The Best Albums of 2011

best albums

 

This year was a great year and even though it wasn’t better than past ones, it sure had lots of bands that exuded uniqueness, rhythm and soul.  We got to know folk, psychedelic, rock, chill-wave, electronic pop bands that made 2011 a very peculiar and amazing year. All albums on the list are pretty good, some are far better than others, but I have to say that most of them are almost equally good apart from differentiating from one another based only on the genre.

I never thought that listing albums in order of greatness, without my subjective point of view getting in the way, was going to be so damn hard, and so, I tried to focus on some factors so that I could decide which album was better than the other … mmm no, never mind, I’ll just arrange them in the order I think is best. I’ll just take into account how good the tracks made me feel and which albums had more enjoyable and brilliant songs.

CHEERS.
