Merry Christmas Newgrounds!

As we're about to enter humanity's last year on Earth (according to the Mayans and bad mathematics), I would like to go over with you what have been the best albums and songs of the year according to Newgrounds. Now, I know these topics tend to attract a lot of comments like these classics :

"The music today SUCK"
"Your list is horrible"
"Random genre of music and/or artist is horrible!!"

But still, I'd love to know what kind of music you guys liked this year.

Here are my personal favorite albums of the year :

1. TunE-yArDs - W H O K I L L
2. Man Man - Life Fantastic
3. Cults - Cults
4. Bright Eyes - The People's Key
5. Destroyer - Kaputt
6. Foster The People - Torches
7. The Decemberists - The King is Dead
8. The Black Keys - El Camino
9. Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah - Hysterical
10. Crystal Castles - Crystal Castles II

And my favorite songs

1. Foster the People - Waste
2. Bright Eyes - Jejune Stars
3. TunE-yArDs - Bizness
4. Ida Maria - I Eat Boys Like You For Breakfast
5. The Dears - 5 Chords
6. Cults - Go Outside (even though it was on their 2010 EP also)
7. Destroyer - Chinatown,
8. Foo Fighters - Bridge Burning
9. Man Man - Knuckle Down
10. Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah - Hysterical

And as an added bonus, ABSOLUTE favorite video of the year :

Is Tropical - The Greeks

How about you guys?

The order is really rough and should probably be ignored.

Albums:

1. The Jolly Boys- Great Expectation
2. Tom Waits- Bad As Me
3. Bon Iver- Bon Iver
4. Cloud Nothings- Cloud Nothings
5. Kurt Vile- Smoke Ring For My Halo
6. The Roots- Undun
7. Fleet Foxes- Helplessness Blues
8. The Book of Mormon Original Cast- The Book of Mormon
9. Rocket From the Tombs- Barfly
10. Wye Oak- Civilian

Songs:

1. Tom Waits- "Hell Broke Luce"
2. Kurt Vile- "Baby's Arms"
3. Cloud Nothings- "Understand At All"
4. Bjork- "Virus"
5. Fleet Foxes- "Helplessness Blues"
6. Rocket From the Tombs- "I Sell Soul"
7. Bon Iver- "Holocene"
8. The Book of Mormon Original Cast- "Hasa Diga Eebowai"
9. The National- "Exile Vilify"
10. The Lonely Island- "Jack Sparrow"

The Jolly Boys album is all covers, which is why no tracks make my best songs list even though it's my number one album. Still, it's an incredible album that you should definitely check out if you have any interest at all in reggae or world music.

I heard bits and pieces of this and it left me cold, even though I loved Six Demon Bag and Rabbit Habits. Maybe I should give it another listen.

In no particular order whatsoever....

J. Cole - Cole World: The Sideline Story
Elzhi - Elmatic
Tyler, The Creator - Goblin (wasn't that great, but contains some likable content)
Kendrick Lamar - Section.80
Drake - Take Care
Wale - Ambition
Common - The Dreamer/The Believer
Lupe Fiasco - LASERS (definitely didn't meet my expectations, but the select good songs were actually good)
Domo Genesis - Under the Influence
Vince Staples - Shyne Coldchain Vol. 1 (drops December 30th, but everyone knows that it's going to be incredible stuff)
Frank Ocean - Nostalgia, Ultra
The Weeknd - House of Balloons
Lil B - I'm Gay
Waka Flocka Flame - LeBron Flocka James 3
A$SP Rocky - LiveLoveA$AP
Childish Gambino - Camp
MellowHype - Blackenedwhite (re-released mixtape, but i'll throw it in anyways)

There's obviously others that are slipping my mind at the moment (forgive me, it's 4 am Christmas morning and I have yet to sleep) but those are definitely a handful of my favorites from 2011.

Dude I love the song Waste by Foster the People. My favorite from their album would be Call It What You Want, but I still love the fact that you enjoyed this album as much as I do.

Merry Christmas!

Those two were BARELY left out of my Top 10. They would definitely be on my Top 15 with The Kills, Ida Maria and TV on the Radio.

I fell in love with this one the first time around, but I will admit it's a bit different than the past two.

Foster The People was easily my second biggest discovery of 2011 (after TunE-yArDs). Waste was actually their first song I heard and I was hooked. I was kinda disappointed when I learned that "Pumped Up Kicks" was already kind of a hit on the web and radio, I was sure I was on to something I could've put on my "indie street cred" list in the coming years...

"Foster the People? Oh yeah, I knew them before they got big..."

El Camino is a pretty good choice for album of the year, {along with The Black Keys for band}

But by far the best song of the year is "Machine Gun Blues" by Social Distortion, and personally, they should win music video of the year as well, if such an award exists.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

My tastes are among the most mainstream of NG users, so I expect most to disagree with me. Even then, I still have a lot on my to-listen list, so my overall view is a bit limited sadly. Oh well.

Adele's 21, mainstream and overplayed as it was, will no doubt be what people look back on and (hopefully) fondly remember about 2011's music. I really do think that this one will stand the test of time, a test not much nowadays can (including a majority of what I listen to). This is my favorite of the year, and dare I say that this may also be the best album front to back I've heard all year.

I did enjoy the Foo Fighters' Wasting Light. "Walk" is an easy highlight, but then if that's the perfect closer, then "Bridge Burning" is the perfect opener. There's usually one band who's said to have "brought rock back" every few years -- the Foos were the lucky ones this year.

Iron & Wine's release Kiss Each Other Clean was really good, though I dare say The Shepherd's Dog was better. Still, I can't get the opener "Walking Far From Home" out of my head -- there is something about that melody that gets in the head. And I love the colorful artwork.

Born This Way is incredible, I don't care what anyone of you think. Lady Gaga and Adele are what excellent pop music is made of nowadays, and while Lady Gaga doesn't have the soul that Adele does, you can't deny that she has the ambition, the creativity... the producers and management. I dare any other pop star to get Bruce Springsteen's sax-player (may he rest in peace) to play on not one, but two dance tracks. Whaaaat.

Lupe Fiasco's LASERS was something I was looking forward to for a good bit. While it didn't live up to all that I had hoped for, when it was good, it was great. Same with Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch the Throne. It didn't NEARLY live up to the hype, but when it was good, it was great. Lil Wayne? Loved Tha Carter III. But Tha Carter IV...? Hmm, at least it was better than Rebirth.

Speaking of, Wayne's protege Drake took his somber not-rap-rap and made another good CD, Take Care. Actually I prefer this to last year's Thank Me Later, though that may be because he got Stevie Wonder to do a brief bit for him on a song. I was on a Stevie kick for a short bit.

Honorary mentions (no order) for now, because my poptimism only takes my writing so far. Hopefully I'll be able to coherently gather my thoughts and make a proper list sometime, in the next few years.

What do you consider music?

2011 saw tons of great albums released. Lots of bands/artists are gearing up/reuniting for 2012 tours. Got Jeff Mangum, Radiohead, and M83 tickets for next year already. Wish I had the funds for Gogol Bordello in NYC on NYE.

33. Iron & Wine - Kiss Each Other Clean

The only album I bought this year that came out in 2011 is
Kiss Each Other Clean by Iron & Wine

Glad to see there are others who like Iron & Wine. I agree that "Walking Far From Home" is really something. It's my favorite song off of that album. There were a couple of songs that I instantly liked (Walking Far From Home, Godless Brother, and Tree By The River (even though it's overplayed at this point)) and over time, and after seeing him live in October, I grew to love the entire album. I just got 2 I&W T shirts and a Kiss Each Other Clean scarf for Christmas :)
I covered Walking Far From Home here. Check it out.

That should be album of the year, even though it won't be.

Either way... Nova Baby is my favorite song on that album.

This. I fell in love with Lonely Boy the second I heard it.

Oh, and that new Foo Fighters album is really good too. No surprise there.

Foo Fighters is a band that has always released good albums, but their last GREAT album was One by One. I wish they would try something new, cause I'm under the impression that their last 3 albums (a.k.a every album after One by One) is the same old same old. It's always good, but a bit redundant...
