CokeMachineGlow Feature: Top 50 Albums 2011

In case you were hibernating in the run up to Christmas, all last week we rolled out our list of the Top 50 Albums of 2011 over at CMG. It's a typically eclectic list, collecting everything from modern classical to noise rock to minimal techno to mainstream and underground rap; it's also the best music list you'll find on the internet this holiday season, and I say that as humbly as possible, this being is my first full year writing for the site. In addition to casting my vote, I also contributed capsules reviews for 13 & God's Own Your Ghost (#42) and Robag Wruhme's Thora Vukk (#21). Individual staff lists, including my personal top 30, were posted late last week as well-- you can fine those here. As is tradition, it's a dense, very in-depth look at fifty records we love, so take your time and read through as time presents itself-- this is some of the best music writing you'll find nowadays and each of these albums are worthwhile in their own way. A lot of time and effort went into this list; we hope you enjoy.
