top albums of 2011 (so far)

Standard

Remember when I listed the top 10 albums I listened to in 2010?

I thought it would be too long in between posts to wait until January before I did this again. My taste changes so much through out the year I don’t want to list something I’m not currently loving. [These are in no particular order]

Adele – 21 (2011)

When I look at these albums, I think to myself, I don’t really listen to these now…so what am I listening to then? Well…right now we’re listening to episode 10 in a series of podcasts by a group of three Jewish dudes who talk about hip hop (and other current topics) called Hype Men. We started from the beginning so we’re a bit behind since episode 44 just posted up. So far, they’ve been interesting and funny, and almost informational. I feel like I’m learning something when I listen to them. They have cool guests, too. So far my favorite is Jean Grae in Episode 1. She was awesome and funny and really down to earth.

What are YOU listening to?
