ITS MY BEST OF 2011 LIST!!!
Oh, man— this list is going to change the world.
The list is bookended by Bon Iver, which makes sense because I bet the number of days in 2011 I listened to Bon Iver outnumbered the days I didn’t. (The final song has my favorite lyrics of the year hidden in it.) I cut a lot of great songs to hit the 20 mark. (which is retarded because I made the mark up myself, I could have made it 25, or 40)  A lot of people/blogs/shit-faces are saying 2011 wasn’t as great as 2010 in music. And I guess, I agree. There weren’t as many stand out albums that were mind blowing; but looking back at the list I am happy. Lets get to it:
