    My most favourite album of the year must be Torches by Foster The People. In some parts it reminds me of ATS.

    2011 is not a great year for music....nothing significant came out...and by "significant" I mean albums that we'll be listened and remembered decades from now.

    I keep forgetting about this album, it's a pretty decent sized step up from their others imo.

    Oh, I found her on Spotify. I actually quite liked some of her music...but definitely not the best album of 2011.
    I'll hold back my response but it'll probably go to Coldplay's Mylo Xyloto

    I don't have any updates on my list, but Scroobius Pip's Distraction Pieces was kind of disappointing for me.

    Since I last posted in this thread, a lot of shit has came out, and my choices for the top 5 are pretty much set in stone (until Drake's new album comes out, will bump Panda Bear out for sure). I still like tUnE-yArDs W H O K I L L album but it's less impressive when I listen to the other 9 albums I've really enjoyed this year.

    01. James Blake - James Blake
    02. Tyler, The Creator - GOBLIN
    03. Watch the Throne - Watch the Throne
    04. EMA - Past Life Martyred Saints
    05. Panda Bear - Tomboy
    06. Kurt Vile - Smoke Ring for My Halo
    07. Steven Wilson - Grace For Drowning
    08. Lil' Wayne - Tha Carter IV
    09. Girls - Father, Son, Holy Ghost
    10. tUnE-yArDs - W H O K I L L

    And, proving EP's aren't a dying art....

    01. EP † by †††
    02. Enough Thunder by James Blake
    03. Life Sux by Wavves
    04. EP by Childish Gambino
    05. Coloring Book by Glassjaw
