This year has produced a TON of good music. There are jams here that I won’t be able to get out of my head. After listening to 135 albums this year (the most ever for me.). I have whittled it down a bit to bring you the top 50 albums of 2011.
16. Bobby Long – A Winter Tale
Despite the fact that Mr. Long owes a little of his career to Robert Pattinson, this dude comes to fucking play with his stripped down acoustic folk. Long owes a lot to 60′s icons like Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and Johnny Cash; Dylan most of all. To those who want to say it’s nothing but a rehash, think again, this have never sounded so fresh before. You also get great country flourishes, indeed the kind that Cash made famous, but well placed in acoustic folky songs. This is the only thing I will thank Pattinson for, so thanks for bringing us Bobby Long.
