You've beat me, Danny Boy. There are a number of other non-2011's I've bought this year, but not as many "new" albums as some years past. The older I get, the happier I am to buy less, but at least sorta be able to keep up with listening to them all. Still a number of these I haven't given enough time. Anyways, here's my list of full length albums (too lazy to list titles):

1. Beastie Boys
2. Beirut
3. Black Lips
4. Bon Iver
5. Cake
6. Cults
7. Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi
8. Death Cab For Cutie
9. The Decemberists
10. Destroyer
11. The Dodos
12. Elbow
13. Eleanor Friedberger
14. Explosions in the Sky
15. Fleet Foxes
16. Kurt Vile
17. Low
18. Mogwai
19. My Morning Jacket
20. Okkervil River
21. The Pains of Being Pure At Heart
22. Panda Bear
23. REM
24. Radiohead
25. Roddy Woomble
26. The Strokes
27. TV on the Radio
28. Washed Out

Albums that I am anticipating for the last quarter of 2011:

1. Feist
2. Noel Gallagher
3. Bjork
4. Zola Jesus
5. St. Vincent
6. Girls
7. Neon Indian
8. M83
9. Coldplay
10. ...and some others that I am sure I am forgetting

On top of that, several reissues are due that I want to purchase.
Add these to my list:

The Rapture
Mogwai EP
Ladytron
DJ Shadow (maybe)
The Avalanches (if it comes out)

My stats are a little skewed this year because I just haven't listened to as much this year as last (I really have to get myself a new laptop soon).

Purchased from Amazon:
Born This Way
Yuck
Bon Iver

...could've swore I bought a few more. Usually I've purchased most of my top 20 albums from the year by the end, so there's a while to go still.

Doesn't mean I'm downloading them though. Just Groovesharkin'.

He plays (and holds) it like a guitar. Which is fine I guess (not everyone wants to play cute little ukulele songs) but makes me wonder why he didn't just slap a capo on the guitar instead. Or maybe he does some other interesting things with it that I haven't heard yet.

Some songs I was happy to hear on the road today during the iPod shuffle:

1. I Am I said (Neil Diamond)
2. Lady With the Spinning Head (U2) (it came on twice)
3. The Big Sky (Kate Bush)
4. A King and Queen (Okkervil River)
5. I Will (Radiohead live, Musique Plus)
6. Things We Said Today (Beatles)
7. Blue Motel Room (Joni Mitchell)
8. Way Over Yonder (Carol King)
9. Living for the City (Stevie Wonder)
10. Heysatan (Sigur Ros)

The album pretty much is a collection of cute, lovey-dovey pop songs played to a swaying beat, so I don't see how he played the instrument "wrong" as such. Then again, I've never seen any live videos. Doesn't seem like it should translate well.

I forgot...
Pearl Jam - Live On Ten Legs
U2 - Duals

Death Cab is definitely on my list, I've been listening to it on Spotify.
And Martha has me about ready to pull the trigger on the Black Lips album, especially after I read that it was produced by Mark Ronson.

Man, who says there's no new music out there. I may end up buying over 50 albums this year, which I bet hasn't happened since college.

Nice, laid back set of summer ballads. Honestly, I haven't given his technique a lot of thought.

Not wrong, just not traditional. He's simply playing it like a guitar with 4 strings.

I wouldn't describe this as lovey-dovey
Can't Keep - Eddie Vedder - YouTube

Anyway, just not terribly interesting to me in terms of ukulele.

That's the one song on the album where you could really say that he plays the uke "like a guitar." And it's easily the fastest paced, most aggressive song on the album. Because it began as a Pearl Jam track. It's the first song on Riot Act.

I haven't listened to that, mostly because the idea of listening to Eddie Vedder play ukelele for 40 minutes doesn't sound very appealing to me.

Ok. I don't really know PJ very well. I've listened to a number of the ukulele tracks now and I guess I just don't care for it.

Yeah, bear in mind that a solid chunk of the album is comprised of covers...largely ballads. But if one is not into it, then I suppose that hardly matters. I personally love it.

And I guess I just don't care for living, because two consecutive people saying negative things about that album means I'm going to kill myself.
