Best of 2011 (not from 2011)

I like Mark Larson’s favorite albums of 2011 because they’re not all albums from 2011. This is also what I like about The Millions’ annual Year in Reading: the picks aren’t restricted to stuff that was released during this last spin around the sun. I think that’s really important. When everything collapses into the “This Week” tab on iTunes, we’re in trouble. It’s vital that we dig in the crates, wander the stacks, and share what we find, because a) there’s great stuff in those crates, and b) if we keep this practice alive, it means somebody might find us on a dusty shelf decades from now.

Larson’s list is also extremely eclectic and aggressively uncool, which I mean as high praise.

Yes! Digging in the crates!
