Top 25 Albums of 2011

Amazingly enough, 2011 has already come and gone, but with it came a slew of glorious, captivating records. From the return of veterans Bright EyesWilco, and Death Cab for Cutie, to sophomore explosions from The AntlersGirlsBon Iver, and Fleet Foxes, and jaw-dropping debuts from Youth LagoonJames Blake, You Won’t, and Caveman, this has been one incredible year of music for us.

Say what you will about this year versus the last, but with the return of lush, hi-fi music from both bands we’ve loved for years and those that have just recently stolen our hearts, 2011 rivals some of the best music years in recent history. Below you will find our list of top albums of 2011, starting with our favorites; a completely subjective collection of amazing music as chosen by all of us here at The Wild Honey Pie.
