As you know, music is my other favorite type of media to consume. And because year-end lists are fun, here are my favorite albums of 2011 (with little to no commentary).
Note: I often give you samples of music but with the abundance of streaming sites these days and my own lack of energy, I’m going to let you discover it on your own.
The Top 5 (aka the albums that were often kept on repeat for weeks)
The King is Dead – The Decemberists
El Camino – The Black Keys
Young the Giant – Young the Giant
What Did You Expect from The Vaccines – The Vaccines
Circuital – My Morning Jacket
In the Mountain in the Cloud – Portugal the Man
People and Things – Jack’s Mannequin

Virtue – Emmy the Great
21 – Adele (I know it’s overplayed by it’s a seriously good album)
A Creature I Don’t Know – Laura Marling
Young Love – Mat Kearney
