2011 is 2 days away from officially becoming history. Lets hear what really stood out this year....so post your must have albums for 2011. FWIW, since some of these bands may not be as well known as others; posting the "genre/style' might help somebody who is looking to expand their library. I'll start, my stand-outs are; Gillian Welch - "The Harrow and the Harvest" (americana, traditional, folk) Tedeschi Trucks Band "Revelator" (rock, blues) Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit "Here We Rest" (southern rock, americana) The Wood Brothers "Some Ring Halo" (traditional, americana, blues) The Black Keys "El Camino" (rock,blues) My biggest let down was Wilco "The Whole Love". Let down is an understatement (POS). After listening to "The Whole Love", I think I am kinda done with Wilco.
