NPR Music's 50 Favorite Albums Of 2011

"Given that it was compiled by a score of NPR Music staffers and public radio DJs, and that it spans more than a dozen genres and embraces artists both well-known and brand-new, one might reasonably wonder what principle ties together this list of our favorite albums of 2011. How about this: They’re the albums that opened our ears to something new, ones that we enjoyed from beginning to end, ones that challenged us, ones we fought over and treasured quietly. Most of all, they're the albums that made us hand our headphones over a cubicle wall and say, 'You have to listen to this."" From NPR Music

Here's the Spotify playlist: NPR Music's 50 Favorite Albums Of 2011 (562 tracks, 46 out of 50 albums) Ctrl (CMD)+G to browse in album view. See complete list of albums here (it left out Watch The Throne). Their classical choices are excellent (Alexandre Tharaud's Scarlatti sonatas is one of the favourite albums of all time) and look forward to catch up with some music made by people of my age.

And you can sample the unavailable albums on BandCamp: Dwellings by Cormorant, Chancletas y Camisetas Bordada by Los Rakas
