Top 20 Albums of 2011: 15-11

15. Kurt Vile – Smoke Ring for My Halo

Because “Jesus Fever”, “Baby’s Arms” and “In My Time”  should be played on classic rock radio till the end of time.

14. Panda Bear – Tomboy

Because Noah Lennox brought us with him to meditate in a European cathedral after Person Pitch‘s beach party.


13. Atlas Sound – Parallax

Because the most prolific man in rock keeps getting more in tune with his inner Michael Stipe.

12. Jay-Z and Kanye West – Watch the Throne

Because only these two can make something so inappropriately out of touch with the times so universally entertaining.


11. St. Vincent – Strange Mercy

Because Annie Clark makes the grotesque beautiful in her most pop-oriented album yet. And because of this.
