The Top Ten

1 Dream With Me - Jackie Evancho Dream With Me - Jackie Evancho

This plus her PBS Great Performances "Dream With Me - In Concert" hosted by David Foster are just amazing. And PBS likes her. She'll be recording her THIRD Great Performances concert in a few weeks.

Astonishing performance by a remarkable young star. This is a keeper.

Even remembering the singing on this album brings me to tears.

Along with her PBS Great Performances "Dream With Me - In Concert" album and video, the best.

2 21 - Adele 21 - Adele

Lady Gaga and Britney Spears above Adele? What! Adele has the most moving album of 2011! Her voice is so strong and angelic at the same time. I love her! She's so great! She deserves everything she has achieved and more!

Top ten adjectives to describe Adele's voice... Ethereal, Sensual, Powerful, Haunting, Magical, Lush, Incredible, Mesmerizing, Unique, Peerless

Adele's the only artist nowadays that only needs her voice. Lady Gaga can sing, but without the costumes and make-up no one would've paid any attention to her!

3 Evanescence - Evanescence Evanescence - Evanescence

I was so glad that I was on my way to work when their first single 'What You Want' came on, I was like, THEY ARE BACK! And I was blown away at the quality of this album. 10 out of 10 Ev!

4 Born This Way - Lady GaGa Born This Way - Lady GaGa

Its gonna be the album of the year her first song born this way is so catchy there are no doubts bout it

This album is simply the best from each album. Because every song - a hit, so thank Lady Gaga for her work and hope it will still please us with their new and unusual albums! - teleroy

love lady gaga, she sings live and is true to herself and everyone else.

5 The King of Limbs - Radiohead The King of Limbs - Radiohead

Sad to see Lady Gaga and Britney Spears above bands like Radiohead, Bon Iver and the Fleet Foxes. - uweuan

Not a hard choice, The king of limbs wins this for me easily!

6 Endgame - Rise Against Endgame - Rise Against

Rise Against is an important band of today. Besides a little help from the offspring they are the sole preservers of punk rock. Plus they have a huge effect on world issues.

This should be NUMBER ONE! COME ON! lady gaga and britney spears? please!

Rise against are a band with powerful lyrics, not like lady gaga or Bieber... they are a real band... gaga and Bieber will son be forgoten

7 Helplessness Blues - Fleet Foxes Helplessness Blues - Fleet Foxes

Yeah, let's get this to number one right now. And Bon Iver, Bon Iver to number two. That's the mission, everybody.

From the quiet and thoughtful "Blue Spotted Tail" to the cheerful and loud "Battery Kinzie", Helplessness Blues has some of the best indie folk/rock songs of all time. Fleet Foxes singer Robin Pecknold's Decemberists-like voice is clear and beautiful. Think folk music is weird? Evidently you haven't heard Fleet Foxes.

8 Watch the Throne - Jay-Z & Kanye West Watch the Throne - Jay-Z & Kanye West
9 Wasting Light - Foo Fighters Wasting Light - Foo Fighters

A stroke of genius brought to the world by Dave Grohl and Co. The screams of "White Limo", calming beauty of "These Days" and the thunderous drums in "Bridge Burning" are only part of this masterpiece. If you feel rock'n'roll has been killed by mainstream music, this album shines a (Wasting) Light of hope on the genre, which I'm sure will one day return to popular radio.

10 Ravedeath, 1972 - Tim Hecker Ravedeath, 1972 - Tim Hecker

The Newcomers

? No Kings - Doomtree No Kings - Doomtree
? Set the Dial - Black Tusk Set the Dial - Black Tusk

15 Let England Shake - PJ Harvey Let England Shake - PJ Harvey
16 Section.80 - Kendrick Lamar Section.80 - Kendrick Lamar

One of the best rap albums of the 2010s and an amazing debut album with hits like HiiiPower, A.D.H.D, Rigormortis, and Ronald Reagan Era.
