Alexander’s Top 20 Albums of 2011


What a year it has been. I was hesitant on compiling any “best of” lists, but decided to because it really was an exhilarating year for music. It seemed like anyone who was anyone dropped an album, mixtape, EP, LP or any other composition, and through the very… very bad shone some excellence which has me anticipating what the new year will bring. I’ve collected a randomized top 20 list of my favourite albums of 2011 and subsequent favourite album tracks (I thought a top 50 would’ve been a bit extra.) Everything I thought I liked was redefined by these albums in some way. They allowed a different scope into certain genres which I’d never been exposed to before and cemented my love for others.
