2011 Albums

These are the albums from this calendar year that I've purchased, listed (more or less) in the order I like them. I already like the artist enough to buy their music in the first place, mind you, so just because it's at the bottom of the list doesn't necessarily mean I hate it. In fact, it might mean that I haven't had time to listen to it yet (either partially or entirely). So, needless to say, the order is a moving target, right up to the end of the year.
