Top 20 Albums of 2011

It doesn’t matter how rarely I post, I can’t help but throw out my list of favorite albums each year. What I do hate is trying to order them! I love them all equally!! Well… almost. Anyhow, here are the album’s that I’ve most enjoyed this year in some sort of loose order. If you’re on Spotify, I have a Best of 2011 list where you can listen to them all. My username is carmonium23.

Top Albums of 2008

Because I didn’t have this blog at the end of last year, I thought I’d post a list of my favorite albums of 2008. I would probably rearrange the order and swap some out with other albums now, but I’ll post them as I did at the end of December.
