Favorite Albums of 2011

I’ve touched on my favorite EPs of 2011 and favorite songs of 2011 and now I’ll present my list of favorite albums from the year before I jump onto my flight back to Denver.

I don’t feel the need to rank the entire list, but for the record The Year of Hibernation by Youth Lagoon was my favorite with Bon Iver’s self-titled and M83’s Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming just a hair behind. The complete list is after the page break. Hope you enjoy.
