Favorite CDs Of 2011

Trying to determine the Best CDs of 2011 reminds me of a scene from the annual Christmas special, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town. Santa ponders his list of boys and girls, and finally decides they’ve all been pretty good.

I’ve come across a number of worthy releases during the past year, but protocol dictates that I pick a Top 10. So, here in no particular order, are my 10 favorites: Note: Technically, some of these were released in late 2010.

Beady Eye - Different Gear - Still Speeding
