My Favourite Albums of 2011
Looking back at 2011 (yes, it's THAT time again), I feel that this year was an amazing year for music. There were so many really good albums released, I thought I should make a list with my ten favourite albums of 2011. This list is totally subjective, of course, so don't be surprised if you can't find some of the year's most successful albums in it (e.g. Adele, Coldplay).
10. Tyler the Creator - Goblin
I used to listen to a lot of rap music when i was in my teens, but then turned to rock music when i got a bit older. Even though I still listened to some rap artists like Eminem, Jay-Z and Kanye West, I wasn't really enthusiastic about that genre anymore. Tyler the Creator's "Goblin" totally changed that! I love Tyler's puristic style and his bold and pretty crude lyrics. I've bought "Goblin" together with Kanye's and Jay-Z's much-anticipated "Watch the Throne" album, but surprisingly ended up preferring the minimalistic "Goblin" over "Watch the Throne". Like Eminem, Tyler is much criticized for his misogynistic and homophobic lyrics, but in my opinion people take this too serious. To quote Tyler: "It's fucking fiction!" Best songs: "Yonkers", "Radicals", "Tron Cat", "Nightmare"
