Haha it's crazy how similar our tastes are. I've streamed and/or promoted more than half of the bands on his list. And he's been reviewing them all! I'm happy.
Wow. What a coindicence...

Hmm....

yeah yeah I've been doing these lists for 5 years now, and you've apparently been a member for nearly a decade. I get it. I like shitty music. everyone can carry on.
Hey man, even if you like dumb pop music, The Wonder Years isn't even catchy, aggressive or fun. I'll vouch for Simple Plan but Owl City and All Time Low albums don't stick which is bad news if you're a fan of pop.

My generic response to this - the lists are personal. "Best" album lists would look different. Anyone can analyze talent and musicianship. If we did that most of the lists would look the same. These are our personal top 10s. Laugh however much you want to laugh.
I just can't figure out The Wonder Years. It's not hooky enough to be a guilty pleasure. The nasal vocals don't allow for it to really...rock and the subjects they touch on are the basic generic and earnest from-the-suburbs things. I can't figure it out. I mean, I don't really like A Day To Remember but I, sort of, get why kids are so into them. TWY, on the other hand, I'm still dumbfounded.

I totally forgot Death Grips' Exmilitary came out this year. Consider that in the mix as well.

Hahaha excellent response. I couldn't wait to get to yours so that I could find some genuinely good pop rock. I've only heard Simple Plan's single but I thought it was catchy as fuck -- the record is that good?

I'm a little surprised that the TBS album didn't come up on more of these lists. But regardless, I now have a long list of albums to download. Good thing I get paid next week...

YC definely needs more love from you people.

anyway this is a great year for music. we finally have a good best seller in Adele, and pop punk is making a comeback of sorts. lots of highly anticipated records to come on the second semester

i didn't listen to enough 2011 music to make a top 10, or even a top 5, but i would pick YC, Manchester Orchestra and TWY as the best of the year so far. my favorites are YC, Silverstein and ATL.

Bon Iver, Thursday, Fireworks, Panic! and The Swellers are up next. i still need to digest Suburbia a little more, though.

props to Thomas and Joe for their great lists. haters gonna hate, but don't let it get to you

How did August Burns Red not make anyone's list? Severe lack of heavier music here.
Absolutely right.

Where's the heavy music? I'm tired of all this never-ending ...ambient stuff.

Are we looking at the same lists?

Feel free to list the "never-ending ambient stuff," please.

The complete lack of Adele, other than on Ian's list, is completely and utterly baffling.

My top five:
Adele - 21
Bon Iver - Bon Iver, Bon Iver
The Dear Hunter - The Color Spectrum (Complete Collection)
Eisley - The Valley
The Civil Wars - Barton Hollow

Honourable Mention:
The Wonder Years - Suburbia I've Given You All and Now I'm Nothing
