Top 10 Albums of 2011

Here you go, my top 10 albums of 2011.  The top 5 were actually really easy to settle on and went back and forth quite a bit with 6-10, which was somewhat of a surprise.  But no going back now, my picks are official and floating around the world wide web for everyone to scrutinize.  And speaking of scrutiny, I would love some feedback.  Do you agree/disagree with my picks?  What were your favorites this year?  Heck, what were your least favorites?  Leave a comment below and keep the conversation going.
