Oh christ, its almost time to compile my "Best of 2011" list. Since I am not ready to quite yet, how about you check out the following:
Merge Records favs.
Pitchfork has a Top 10 list for just about EVERYTHING (including worst album covers, ha!)
My friend Michael Hall sent this list from Fluxblog over to me as well as Gorillavsbear.
Or you can vote for your favorites at NPR.
Despite missing Gonzo, Rolling Stone has a fairly solid list of albums and singles.
AV Club too!!
An I'll get back to you, I promise. MMMMMKAY?
