B&C's Best Albums of 2011

It's that time of year where I post the Impy Memorial Favorite Albums of the Year Tally and Discussion Thread. This is the jaunt where you say, "Fuck you, critics, I know my shit" and then go ahead and talk about that.

Here's the tally rules:
- You list your top 15 albums.
- You distribute 100 points up among those 15 albums however you see fit. You cannot exceed 15 points for a single album, however.

This is, of course, about more than just making lists. This is about everyone talking about their favorite music. You can make your lists longer than 15 albums while still ranking the top 15. You can post your favorite songs, all that good stuff. Just talk about all the awesome musical shit that went down in 2011 and you'll be good to go.

Now, there's no rush. I don't think I tallied it up last year until towards the end of January, because people are still listening to the things they heard this year (I am too), and are still discovering albums they missed.

Go.

I have a top 25 ready to go, but there are about a dozen albums I want to hear before I consider my list comprehensive. I also want to write a paragraph about each, so I'm going to wait for a while.

I'm in a similar boat, though I probably have closer to 20 albums I want to listen to.

Neon Trees didn't have an album come out this year, so I have no way to give a #1 spot. I guess Lulu will have to do.

I haven't heard Lulu yet, so Brokencyde's spot at #1 is still in question.

What if I can't really draw up 15 albums? I mean, I can name 15 albums from 2011, but I really don't see much in terms of music I liked this year. Of course, four years later I'll find stuff from 2011 that was a gold mine staring me in the face.

Sounds like fun though.

I haven't either. Someone please listen to it for LeMeL and I, as I don't want to suffer through it.

My recommendation would be to wait for some lists to get posted and see what albums are consistently being rated highly that you have not listened to and expedite that gold mine discovery process.

But your old handle is.

I could change it to the Shuttlecock Memorial since Shuttlecock is most certainly dead.
