The Best 20 Albums of 2011 (and they are all available on Vinyl)

There was a lot of great music released in 2011, and a ton on vinyl as the kids of today are learning to enjoy the warmth and expansive sound of a record while holding the cover reading the lyrics or liner notes. This makes the world a better place.

It was close to a perfect year in music, unfortunately the Strokes releasing another crap album brought down the year, you see if we have endure all of the hype regarding a record as bad as Angles, we have to add up all of that hype and reverse it for the weighted average of the year’s releases…overall this year on a scale of 100 would have been an 97, but when you factor in the Strokes album as 65 separate “0′s” it drops the overall year to a barely passing 66..

but anyway let’s move on with the top 20 albums, all should be listened to on vinyl as all are available that way, and they had to be on vinyl to make the list… no compilations or live albums are included in this.

and much to the dismay of the people who run my website, i’ve decided to list them all in one post as opposed to that aggravating “page view generating tactic” of making you go page to page to see each title. I respect you all too much to do that…to make my web people happy direct 19 people to this list and it will accomplish their desired result.

If you don’t have these albums go to your local record store and buy them on Vinyl, sit down with a loved one, crack open your favorite beverage and drop the needle and enjoy…

20. Cage the Elephant Thank You Happy Birthday
Well, maybe Bowling Green, Kentucky is the next Minneapolis or Seattle. This was not as great as their debut album but still merits the top 20 of the year. Their next album will be one of the most antipicated releases in recent years, when it’s coming, who knows, but in a wide open american young rock field, can Cage take charge? We shall see
My Favorite Tracks:
Aberdeen,
Shake me Down,
Japanese Buffalo,
Right before my Eyes

19. The Joy Formidable The Big Roar
Two Words: Ritzy Bryan
My Favorite Tracks:
Whirring,
Austere,
I don’t want to see you like this,
Cradle

18. Lucinda Williams Blessed
Preconceived notions are a dangerous thing when it comes to music, Lucinda Williams is a rare exception, you expect it to be great and it is. One of the best songwriters today and another solid effort.
My Favorite Tracks:
Buttercup,
Convince me,
Sweet Love,
Ugly Truth

17. REM Collapse into Now
Who knew that this solid effort would be arguably America’s all time greatest band’s last album, but it was as they broke up later in the year for good.
My Favorite Tracks:
Alligator_Aviator_Autopilot_Antimatter,
It Happened Today, Me,
Marlon Brando, Marlon Brando and I,
Discoverer

16. Smith Westerns Dye it Blonde
The first of two Chicago bands on this list. I thought their debut album tried too hard to be something, but not anything, a weird dicotomy. This album was more focused more polished and like Cage the Elephant as mentioned earlier, all eyes and ears are waiting for the pivotal 3rd album, while we wait we can enjoy this one.
My Favorite Tracks:
All Die Young,
Only One,
Weekend,
End of the Night

15. The Pains of Being Pure at Heart Belong
Fuzzy and plush indie pop from Brooklyn and NYC with some high octane production from Flood, makes this more accessible then their debut album and a lot more fun.
My Favorite Tracks:
Heaven’s gonna happen now,
Heart in your heartbreak,
My terrible friend,
Belong

14. Adele 21
You heard her voice on her debut album 19 and you just hoped it would be something special for a long time, when 21 came out I was floored as were most people, unfortunately it doesn’t seem as if she’s ever going to sustain doing tours, but as long as she can release records like this one, we’ll be ok with that.
My Favorite Tracks:
Rolling in the Deep
Someone like you
Lovesong
Set Fire to the Rain


13. Dropkick Murphys Going out in Style

Irish Punk from Boston. The Dropkicks deliver what may be their best album yet and it doesn’t hurt when the Boss sits in for rollicking version of an Irish Standard.
My Favorite Tracks:
Memorial Day
Peg O’ my Heart (with Springsteen)
Broken Hynms
Take ‘em down


12. Nicole Atkins
Mondo Amore
The siren of the Jersey Shore music scene. Maybe it’s something in the water down the shore, as it seems that when an Jersey shore artist goes through hard times, the musical result delivers. and thensome. The hell with the boyfriend, the hell with the major label, let’s get it on. This album blows away her debut, and all eyes and ears are anticipating the all important third album, but for now let’s savor this one.
My Favorite Tracks:
You Come to Me
Cry Cry Cry
You were the Devil
The Tower

11. Eddie Vedder Ukekele Songs
Just when i thought a Don Ho album would always be the best ukekele album, Eddie Vedder snatches it away. One of the most enduring things about Eddie is that he has no boundaries, no limitations, no fears, and the results are always great, but an album of songs on Ukekele? Opening with a redone Pearl Jam song and closing with a song made famous in the Ukelele scene from THE JERK, this is an enjoyable album.
My Favorite Tracks:
Can’t Keep
Satellite
You’re True
Tonight you Belong to Me

10. Ryan Adams Ashes & Fire
So much for retirement. Ryan comes back and comes back strong. I don’t think anyone believed Ryan would never make music again, but i didn’t expect something this soon. I’m not complaining there can never be enough Ryan Adams music.
My Favorite Tracks:
Lucky Now
Save Me
Dirty Rain
Chains of Love

9. Emily’s Army Don’t be a Dick
A group of Teenagers from the Bay Area playing Punk Music, that always works for me. Even though my favorite song from this album is kinda sorta anti-radio, i still was more than happy to be the first to play it on the radio, that’s the beauty of a free form radio show, no rules.
My Favorite Tracks:
Broadcast This
Loch Lomond
Ho-lloween
West Coast

8. Garland Jeffreys The King of In Between
One of NYC’s all time great storytellers bestows upon us a modern local classic with vivid imagery of the Brooklyn where he grew up.
My Favorite Tracks:
Roller Coaster Town
Coney Island Winter
If John Lee Hooker calls me
I’m alive

7. WILCO The Whole Love
They just keep getting better and better and if they string a few more albums together like this and hit double digit releases, do they become not only shoo-in for the rock hall of fame (which i’m not sure is even an honor considering how they ruined it) they enter the discussion of being perhaps being America’s best band.
My Favorite Tracks:
I Might
Whole Love
Black Moon
Capitol City

6.Foo Fighters Wasting Light
All analog, loud as hell and one of the best marketing campaigns to promote an album in recent years. Unlike label mates, The Strokes, the Foos actually have something worth listening to after the marketing push is over.
My Favorite Tracks:
Arlandria
I Should have Known
Walk
These Days

5.Wyldlife Self-Titled
The best power punk band to come out of NYC in the last 20 years. Their debut does everything a debut album is supposed to do: Tell you who they are, what they do and leave you wanting more. I expect huge things from this band and you will too.
My Favorite Tracks:
S.W.A.K
Sidewalk Queen
City Of Inbreds
Seven

4. John Wesley Harding The Sound of his own Voice
If there were any justice in the world, John Wesley Harding would be an arena act, playing 3 hour sets every night weaving in and out of his catalogue of fantastic songs and you wouldn’t be able to escape him on multiple formats on your radio. Unfortunately we live in a world where the Strokes still get magazine covers and SNL appearances with lackluster efforts. It’s probably too much to expect Wes to top his 1st 3 albums which all belong in any discussion of best albums of the 90′s, but this one is damn good and damn close to it.
My Favorite Tracks:
There’s a Starbucks where the Starbucks used to be
Gentleman Caller
Captain Courageous (on Disko Island)
The Examiners

3. Girl in a Coma Exits and All the Rest
One of the coolest things is to watch the growth of a band you’ve listened to for awhile, after a brilliant covers album, Girl in a Coma returns with their best album yet. Smart is by far the best and most accessible song they’ve ever done
My Favorite Tracks:
Smart
One Eyed Fool
Adjust
Control

2. Black Keys El Camino
The Black Keys seventh album came out with much fanfare on the heels of the success of Brothers, and El Camino has surpassed it, a little harder, a little faster and a bit more melodic than previous efforts. We are now witnessing a band with a nice body of work establish themselves as an innovative force of the US music scene. And their stance on streaming is refreshing and hopefully others will follow suit. It’s very welcome and much needed.
My Favorite Tracks:
Run Right Back
Lonely Boy
Gold on the Ceiling
Stop Stop

1. Social Distortion Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes
This was one of the first albums I had purchased in 2011, as it was released in mid January, and it hasn’t been far from my turntable since. It’s been a go to album for me, and i feel it’s not only Social D’s best album, it’s the best album of the year. There’s the sound we’ve come to expect from Social D, and then they throw a curve at you. Mike Ness is always in great voice and the songwriting is up a notch too. The production is by far the best ever on a Social D album. It’s the best album of the year.
My Favorite Tracks:
Gimme the Sweet and Lowdown
Can’t Take it with you
Far side of Nowhere
I won’t run no more (vinyl only bonus track)

The first anything anything live show since the relaunch…

Since the show relaunched in the fall on the PEAK and WDHA i’ve been itching to do an anything anything live show, i’ve thought long and hard on what and where it should be, would it be two shows, one in Westchester and one in Morristown? or something in the city? would it be all unsigned unknown bands like the first anything anything live show? or would it be a combination of some of the great bands who i’ve done shows with or been a part of, dramrama, girl in a coma, steel train, jesse malin, foxboro, alejandro, joan etc etc? Maybe later for those…

I finally came up with it. It’s going to bridge the two cities that serve as my foundation of rock and roll, NYC and Asbury Park. It’s going to bridge some of the most influential members of the NYC Punk scene of the 70′s with an up and coming band that would have fit right in at CBGB’s and one that i expect huge things from. By the way the band that’s some of the most influential members of the NYC punk scene are making their world debut at this show, and expect a lot of big things from them this year as well.

and it’s for a charity.

Here’s the press release, tickets on sale noon friday december 23 via ticketweb

Anything Anything and LIGHT OF DAY proudly present on Friday January 13th at Asbury Lanes in Asbury Park NJ, the world debut of MANITOBA!

Punk-rock supergroup Manitoba will make their debut on Friday, January 13th at Asbury Lanes as part of the Light of Day Foundation’s four-day weekend of events in Asbury Park to raise money for the fight against Parkinson’s disease.

The show will be hosted by disc jockey Rich Russo (www.richrusso.net), whose free-form radio show, “Anything Anything,” can be heard on Sunday nights in northern New Jersey on 105.5 WDHA-FM and in Westchester County on 107.1 The Peak FM. Asbury Lanes (www.asburylanes.com) is located at 209 Fourth Avenue in Asbury Park.

Manitoba features members of legendary New York punk-rock bands The Dictators and Manitoba’s Wild Kingdom, including Handsome Dick Manitoba, Ross the Boss, Thunderbolt Patterson, Daniel Rey and Dean Rispler.

“These guys are some of the founding fathers and pillars of the legendary New York City punk scene,” said Russo, who noted that the Asbury Lanes concert will be the first show he’s hosted since “Anything Anything” was relaunched on The Peak and WDHA. “This will be an amazing band not to be missed.”

Russo has co-hosted Light of Day’s shows at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park for the past two years, along with Vinnie “Big Pussy” Pastore. This will be the first “Anything Anything” live show Russo has put together since the relaunch of his free form radio show in September.

Handsome Dick Manitoba said band members are excited to be making their debut as part of the 12th annual Light of Day concert series in Asbury Park.

The concert series, now expanded to 16 different events over four days, raises money for the fight against Parkinson’s and other neuromuscular diseases. The Light of Day Foundation, which also hosts shows in Pittsburgh, New York City, Canada, and in Europe, has raised more than $1.5 million over the past 11 years.

“Ross the Boss, Handsome Dick Manitoba, Thunderbolt Patterson, Daniel Rey and Dean “The Dream” Rispler have been bursting at the seams to play some live rock and roll,” Manitoba said. “What better way to get the ball rolling than the wonderful Light of Day benefit in Asbury Park!”

The concert series, now expanded to 16 different events over four days, raises money for the fight against Parkinson’s and other neuromuscular diseases. The Light of Day Foundation, which also hosts shows in Pittsburgh, New York City, Canada, and in Europe, has raised more than $1.5 million over the past 11 years.

Also on the bill will be Wyldlife, a band from Westchester County that Russo believes is headed for big things.

“I’m excited to be able to have Wyldlife on the bill, too, who I believe are the best young punk band in the area,” Russo said. “I expect great things from them.” Russo pegged Wyldlife’s debut album as one of his top 10 albums of the year, along with discs by such established superstars as Wilco, Social Distortion and the Foo Fighters.

Ruby the Hatchet, Composure, The Obvious and Lost in Society will also perform.

Tickets for the Asbury Lanes show are $15 and go onsale at noon Friday, Dec. 23. Tickets are available at the box office and through Ticketweb (www.ticketweb.com), and at Ticketweb phone charge, 1-866-777-8932.
