The Unblinking Ear Podcast: Plausibly the Best of 2011

The year is nearly over. But before we put 2011 in our rearview, let's take a moment (or roughly 47 and a half minutes) to reflect on the year that was.

Below are selections from what I consider the best records of 2011. For those of you with obsessive compulsive disorder, don't fret. I'll be putting them in list form in the near future, along with many "honorable mentions."

I welcome all agreements/disagreements, Either post them in comments section or tweet them at me. But before you work yourself into a frothy rage over my selections, do try and remember that these things are subjective.

The Unblinking Ear Podcast: Not Necessarily the Best of 2011

It seems like every year, many major companies publish their best of the year list weeks before the year ends. (See example above.)

We here at the Unblinking Ear prefer to be patient with such things. Also we like to procrastinate.

The next edition of the podcast will likely feature what we've deemed to be the best music of 2011. The podcast below, however, might contain some of it as well. Which ones in particular? You're just going to have to wait to find out.
