top albums of 2011

These are my favorite albums that I listened to in 2011! I had a bunch of these albums on vinyl, so they were even more fun to listen to (like #1, 2, 8 & 9!)! Sometimes I feel like I listen to a lot of music. And other times, not so much. Honestly, I couldn't make this list without looking at my iTunes listen count and But, after spending time remembering all the GOOD music that I've spent the past year listening to, this list makes me happy and inspires me to keep listening to these great albums.
