3) Theneedledrop’s Favorite Albums of 2011
I really, really disagree with a lot of what Anthony Fantano has to say. And yet I always come back for more. Is it because I’m a rabid sadomasochistic fan who needs something to complain about on /mu/? Yes. But it’s also because he’s a highly entertaining reviewer who picks up on some great underground stuff. And this list is just a reminder to me of all of the discoveries and great times throughout this year that I owe all to him. Whether it’s great releases I would have ignored or some of my favorites of this year I likely would never have heard of, TND has bore a great influence on me, and I am very grateful.
