My Top Ten Albums of 2011

Here they are in order:

1. Bon Iver – Bon Iver

I really like this album. I’ve listened to it a lot. Sometimes I listen to it on repeat. Here’s a little confession: I don’t know any of the words. I’m not sure, though, if you’re supposed to know the words. To me, the beauty of this album is that it conveys emotions and feelings through the sound of the lyrics, rather than the ideas expressed in the lyrics. At least that’s what I get when I listen to it. It’s all relative, right? (sounds like pop postmodernism/emo/hipsterism, which is fitting for Bon Iver)


2-10. _______________

I don’t know if I really listened to any albums that came out in 2011 other than Bon Iver, so I’ll just leave these blank.

Disclaimer: I did actually listen to several other albums that came out in 2011, and I even liked some of them. I just really, really liked Bon Iver this year.
