2011 innit.

I would do this on New Years Day, but I'm bored and I'll possibly be hungover tomorrow.

First I'd like to start off by saying RIP to these great bands: Oceansize, RX Bandits, Thrice and Thursday. Oceansize hit the hardest, especially since I never got to see them live and I'm sure I missed out a great deal.

I would write something about the albums I'm about the list, however I did that last year and it took me an absolute age and I can't really be bothered doing that again especially since reading back, my writing was either clunky or poorly expressed due to a lack of proof reading.

Any way, these have been my favourite albums of 2011, a lot of them are in no order really because I found it difficult due to the high quality of releases that I have heard this year. I didn't get round to listening to everything I had wanted to hear due to going to Uni and finally getting a social life, or in the case of The Roots - Undun and Russian Circles - Empros, I haven't given them enough listens yet for it to enter my list.

    Nothing even came close to Gangs this year. You have a solid list, some stuff I've never heard of that I might have to investigate. I completely forgot about Crash of Rhinos, that album was great. Would have probably have been in my top 20 if I remembered it. I can't be bothered to change it though.

    Nice list mate! I have that Vessels album in the top ten of my list. Good call on the And So I Watch You, Cave In, and Young Legionnaire albums too. I also really enjoyed those as well. There's a lot in here I need to check out too. Good job!
