I haven't actually read the list, but ol Gaffer's never steered me wrong.

Now, here's a thing. As some of you know, and some of you may not know, there isn't a bigger Strokes fan on this forum than yours truly. (Bring on the "Strokes are still around?!?" jokes.) Their first three albums are three of my favorite albums by anybody, ever.

I was as disappointed as everybody else in their 2011 comeback album Angles. It was a mess, and they forgot to write more than a couple good tunes for it.

But let us not forget that the lead single kicked all kinds of ass. If this isn't one of the "Top 100" songs of 2011, then I'm Paris Hilton's chihuahua. Let's revisit it, in case you haven't heard it in a while:

Great song, I agree.

Yep, that's good stuff. It was in my "heavy rotation" playlist for a good part of the year.

I'm finding myself mostly focusing on the debuts on all these lists now. I don't feel like I've been introduced to a lot of new, exciting artists this year, just great shit from artists I already like. Keep hearing how great this Other Lives album is, so I'll get to that soon. If it's good enough for Radiohead, it's usually good enough for me.

Because about.com apparently still exists:

Best Records of 2011 - Top Alternative Music Albums of 2011

I keep hearing extremely mixed reactions re: Julianna Barwick's album. It sounds obnoxious on paper, but maybe I need to hear it.

Wait, have the poop jokes moved to this thread?

Your Outkast obsession knows no bounds.

What's the Danny Brown record like? Are they on the money? Or is it an example of Pitchfork's inexplicable love for shithouse hip-hop like Lil' Wayne and Waka Fuckoff Flame? And what about Shabazz Palaces?


This sums up why I love Raconte-Moi Une Historie:

"If a sound has ever made you break out into a foolish, cheesed-out grin you couldn't suppress, it's probably here."


Bon Iver is a deserving winner. Yes, Kaputt is the best album I've heard since In Rainbows, but Bon Iver is remarkable. I think the fact that I know all the songs - but couldn't tell you which was which by name - is a testament to its strength. I'm so excited to see him in March.
