2011 Albums List & Ratings

I'll be updating this sporadically throughout the year. I'm looking for recommendations so don't be shy, leave a comment if you think I should have an album on here that you don't see. Comments, positive or otherwise are always welcome. If an album doesn't have a rating it probably means I've got it but haven't given it a listen yet. A lot of these ratings are based off of a few or less listens and they're highly likely to change throughout the year, so don't be surprised if an album drops a point or more.
