My Favorite Albums Of 2011

1. (TIE)  Fleet Foxes – Helplessness Blues / Feist – Metals
I’ve mulled over this for a long time and there’s simply NO WAY for me to choose one of these albums over the other. In my opinion, these two stand far apart from the rest. Early in the year, I was blown away by Helplessness Blues, an album that really resonated with ME in this year of my life. Then, in October, Metals came out and I wasn’t really sure what to make of it at first. But the more I listened, the more it felt like my eyes were opening to a universally brilliant piece of art. I guess I could say that Helplessness Blues might be my FAVORITE of the year, while Metals is the BEST.
