2011 has been a ridiculously great year for music, so I'm not going to even try to rank things or limit this list, because that would drive me nuts. Instead, I'm more just using this to organize myself here.

So first, these are all the albums that I would consider "great" and that I was addicted to at least when they came out. I am still listening to most of these on a pretty regular basis though.

Algernon Cadwallader - Parrot Flies
Banquets - Top Button, Bottom Shelf
Bomb the Music Industry! - Vacation
Chuck Ragan - Covering Ground
Decemberists - The King is Dead
Frank Turner - England Keep My Bones
Ha Ha Tonka - Death of a Decade
Horrible Crowes - Elsie
Into It. Over It. - Proper
Joyce Manor - s/t
Laura Stevenson & the Cans - Sit Resist
Portugal. The Man - In the Mountain In the Cloud
Real Live Tigers - Spirit Animal
Tom Waits - Bad As Me
White Wives - Happeners

EPs, Splits etc.

Banquets/Mayflower - split
Daytrader - Last Days of Rome
Deer Leap/The World is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die - split
Hooking Up - Can't Lose
Koji/La Dispute - Never Come Undone (split)

Albums I Enjoy But Need More Listens

Andrew Jackson Jihad - Knife Man
Balance and Composure - Separation
Blitzen Trapper - American Goldwing
Cut Copy - Zonoscope
Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues
Larry and His Flask - All That We Know
Manchester Orchestra - Simple Math
Owen - Ghost Town
Ramshackle Glory - Live the Dream
Spraynard - Funtitled
Timeshares - Bearable
Title Fight - Shed
Transit - Listen & Forgive
Wild Flag - s/t
William Elliot Whitmore - Field Songs
Youth Lagoon - The Year of Hibernation

Still Waiting On (ordered, in the mail etc.)

Frank Turner - The Second Three Years
Japanther - Beets, Limes & Rice
Toh Kay (Tomas Kalnoky) - Streetlight Lullabies

Bummers

Blue Scholars - Cinémetropolis
Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. - It's a Corporate World
Radiohead - King of Limbs

OK, that was a ridiculous list. Maybe you'll find something good in there. Feel free to tell me what I've missed.

Cobra Skulls - Agitations (great at first, less so with more plays)
Sharks - The Joys Of Living 2008-2010 (on recommendations from the board)
Leatherbag - Yellow Television (great band from Austin, TX)
Leatherbag - Patience EP
Dikembe - Chicago Bowls EP (surprisingly good emo-punk from FLA)
Cobra Skulls - Bringing The War Home EP (great Fat Wreck debut)

These were all pretty good, but nothing was mind blowing. hopefully we'll get some good stuff the next few months.

Colmillionaire, Harbortown, I am shocked! Elsie was by far the best album released this year. At least you seem to have come to your senses now, Harbortown. Wink

Oh wow, I totally forgot about Dave Hause. That is a great record. It came out in January or February so it felt like it had been a lot longer.

The new cage the elephant release was certainly disappointing. So was Suck It and See (although that at least had a couple of good songs) but beyond that its been an amazing year for music.

Top of the top:

The Horrible Crowes - Elsie
Frank Turner - England Keep My Bones
The Vaccines - What did you expect from the Vaccines?
The Wonder Years - Suburbia: I've Given You All and Now I'm Nothing
Thrice - Major/Minor

Other good stuff:

New Dave Hause and Chuck Ragan records were fantastic. Bon Iver is hard not to like. Same goes for Adele and Lady Gaga to a lesser extent. Manchester Orchestra's Simple Math was amazing. The Airborne Toxic Event's All At Once disappointed at first, but is now growing on me. I'm certainly missing some stuff too. It seems like every other day I'm rediscovering another great album released this year.
