Oh So Fresh's Top 25 Albums of 2011


2011 has come and gone pretty quickly. It's weird to think that 2012 is right around the corner. This year brought us a lot of good music, so much in fact that Dan and I both have our own lists. There were so many good albums out that it was pretty hard to narrow it down to 25, and plenty of albums I was not sure where to even place. Now, granted I know most of you might disagree or be annoyed that certain albums made ours or didn't, but remember, this is all strictly opinion. We'd love to hear your thoughts and top albums in the comment section.

Also, due to our limited time, we didn't write anything. We both wanted to include something for the top 10. but oh well. Top songs are coming next week.

I'm surprised as hell that Watch The Throne didn't make your list, not even the honorable mention.

It made Dan's List #21, not mine though. If I did a top 50 it would of been in there. The album could of been alot better in my opinion.

I loved Watch The Throne. I didn't love every song but I still couldn't help loving the album as a whole. It got a lot of playtime in my whip lol. "Murder to Excellence" was one of my favorite songs of the year by far, as you can see by the top 50 songs list. Ball so hard.
