Blog Monster's Top 25 Records of 2011

Well, the year is ending and I have completed my top 25 LP's of 2011. I won't elaborate since I'm not much of a writer/reviewer, plus I seem to have very little time these days to do so between work, recording the new Mongrolls release, "Get Dumb", raking leaves, Christmas and so on...

In the list I have included one reissue, The Reactions and three 12" EP's, Crime Wave, Neighborhood Brats and Mother's Children. All worthy for the top 25!

Here it is kids, in no particular order...

1.) Bad Sports - "Kings of The Weekend" (Dirtnap)
2.) Sharp Objects - "S/T" (Modern Action)
3.) Night Beats - "S/T" (Trouble In Mind)

5.) White Faces - "S/T" (Windian)
6.) Missing Monuments - "Painted White" (Douchemaster)

  1. There's alot on there that I'm going to have to check out.

  2. I recommend each and every record. I'm sure you'll enjoy most, Chaz!

  3. Sharp Objects made top three on both of our lists...I believe this distinction comes with a cash reward!

  4. Thanks for including "The CRY!" in your 2011 list. We are flattered and appreciate the support. The 12" version will be out in March (SR-Records)!

  5. Sure thing John! Looking forward to the LP on SP Records!
