Top 37 1/2 Albums of 2011

One more year has come and gone.  Reflecting on 2011 can leave a person feeling estranged and severely disoriented.  From Occupy Wall Street, all the way back to Middle East uprisings, to the death of Osama Bin Laden….it was definitely a strange year.  But, what a year for music!  Hell, even the big whigs at the major record companies saw some improvement (of which at least one should be kissing Adele’s ass hard).  But, when Arcade Fire took home the bacon at the Grammy’s, it became pretty obvious that the indie crowd would come out on top.

Although this is the first “end of year list” for Trainwreck’d, anyone who has seen a list I have created in the past, will see some very familiar faces.  Not so ironically, he whole stole the top prize this year, was also top dog last year.  This is my third list I’ve created in my tenor as a music blogger.  And some of these artists are making their third appearances.  Maybe I’m scared of change, but I’m leaning more towards the idea that they are awesome and extremely dedicated artists.  We also have a very broad range of music here!  Everything from garage rock, hip hop, electronic, folk, and good old fashioned indie rock.  Very few stones are left to gather moss this year.

And all that rambling being said, let’s get this show on the road.  I present to you, Trainwreck’d Society’s  Top 37 1/2 Albums of 2011.  Enjoy!
