The year has come to an end, and it is time to reveal my choices for
the BEST and WORST in music of the year.
I'm a believer in giving out the bad news first,
so here's the FIVE worst albums of 2011!
5. Dev's The Night The Sun Came Up
Even though it has yet to be released in the States yet (release date: January 10th,)
mother-to-be DEV's debut album is mediocre at best; there are a few standout tracks
("Kiss My Lips," "Dancing Shoes," and her only top 20 hit "In The Dark",)
but the remaining tracks drag the album down way into the dumps.
4. Lil' Wayne's Tha Carter VI
With almost one million copies sold in the first week of release, you'd think Lil' Wayne's seventh album would have been as good as 2008's Tha Carter III.
3. T-Pain's RevolveЯ
After pushing the album back and changing the name numorous
times in two years, T-Pain seemed to have the right game plan...
until releasing the lead single, the gutwrenching, Lily Allen-sampling "5 'o Clock."
The entire album gives me the same feeling.
2. Nickelback's Here And Now
Come on, now. It's Nickleback.
1. Florence + the Machine's Ceremonials
Don't judge me before reading this: I'm a huge Florence Welch fan.
Lungs is on my list of favorite albums of the past ten years.
But Ceremonials... that's a completely different story.
