In alphabetical order so as not to ruin the surprise later ( )

Beach House - Bloom
The Big Pink - Future This
Chairlift - Something
Cloud Nothings - Attack on Memory
Errors - Have Some Faith in Magic
Grimes - Visions
Japandroids - Celebration Rock
Magnetic Fields - Love at the Bottom of the Sea
Metric - Synthetica
Perfume Genius - Put Your Back N 2 It
Shearwater - Animal Joy
Regina Spektor - What We Saw From the Cheap Seats
Bruce Springsteen - Wrecking Ball
Sun Kil Moon - Among the Leaves
Twin Shadow - Confess

I can not wait for the second half of this year. So much good stuff coming up. A lot of these albums will likely be missing when it comes down to it.

favourites this year so far in no real order, but sort of grouped together:

* Leonard Cohen - Old Ideas
* Reigning Sound - Break Up ... Break Down
* Patti Smith - Banga

* The Shins - Port Of Morrow
* Fiona Apple - The Idler Wheel

* Tindersticks -The Something Rain
* Lambchop -Mr. M
* Jack White - Blunderbuss

too early to decide:
* Joe Jackson - The Duke

surprisingly good, but not year end material (unless I change my mind):
* Garland Jeffreys - The King Of In Between
* The Beach Boys - That's Why God Made The Radio

and 2 2011 albums I finally started listening to and think are very good:
* Alela Diane - Alela Diane & Wild Divine
* Steve Earle - I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive

I like this a lot too. Probably more than one or two of the things I listed, I just haven't listened to it in a while.

I enjoyed it, but certainly more of a film score than an album, if I'm allowed to make that differentiation.

All the stuff that stayed in my library and their current ranking (which will fluctuate)....

School of Seven Bells - Ghostory
Walkmen - Heaven
Frankie Rose - Interstellar
John Talabot - fin
Cloud Nothings - Attack On Memory
Lotus Plaza - Spooky Action At A Distance
Chromatics - Kill for Love
Sharon Van Etten - Tramp
Lambchop - Mr. M
Japandroids - Celebration Rock
Hot Chip - In Our Heads
Porcelain Raft - Strange Weekend
Lilacs & Champagne
DIIV - Oshin
Lana Del Rey - Born To Die
Beach Boys - That's Why God Made The Radio

Lotus Plaza needs to be re-evaluated since I have only had time to listen to it once but remember really loving it.

I've heard 99 new albums this year.

Lucky bastard. You're the only person that's heard that album.

I've heard Tramp (I actually own it, too). There's some great tracks on it (Serpent rules, can easily see why you think that'd be the title) but it all sounds a bit same-y and she doesn't really ever elevate her voice about a monotonous mumble.
