Most Surprisingly Good Albums of 2010-2011

Magnolia
You didn't expect much from these albums, but you liked them when they came out.

The Top Ten

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

David Foster produced album that just gets better with time. Still better is the PBS Great Performances "Dream With Me - In Concert" Blu-ray, DVD, and soundtrack. There you can see for yourself the magic of this young lady. - Trancas

How can someone this young produce a masterpiece like this? Well, she had help from David Foster, but it's her astonishing talent that shines thru.

I bought this album after hearing Jackie on YouTube.
Wow!
The next day I ordered every available album she has produced.

2 Love? - Jennifer Lopez Love? - Jennifer Lopez

I love J. Lo very much but her 2007 albums Como ama una Mujer and Brave were flop. She tried to come back in 2009 and 2010 with awful songs Fresh Out the Oven and Louboutins but failed again. Of course, I didn't expect much from this album but I changed my mind. "Love? " is great record.J. Lo rules - Magnolia

3 Femme Fatale - Britney Spears Femme Fatale - Britney Spears

I was not disappointed at all when I listened to this. The songs are awesome! I love her voice and own all her albums. I don't understand why anybody wouldn't like her. Her talent is amazing. My favorite songs on this album are: till the worlds ends, gasoline, I wanna go.

SHE IS JUST AWESOME MAN... I MEAN with A SONG LIKE "CRIMINAL"... SHE HAS MADE A GOOD PLACE IN MY HEART AGAIN. SHE TRULY DESERVES TO BE NO. ONE DIVA OF THE WORLD

This woman has so many haters. I read awful reviews of FF but I found some really great tracks. Just leave her alone - Magnolia

4 Sale el Sol - Shakira Sale el Sol - Shakira

After disappointing electro-pop She Wolf I thought this one will be the same but I was wrong. Sale el Sol has great ammount of awesome songs. - Magnolia

5 Killer Love - Nicole Scherzinger Killer Love - Nicole Scherzinger

WOW this girl can sing, dance and entertain. - Magnolia

6 Original Me - Cascada Original Me - Cascada

Evacuate the Dancefloor was a big disappointment but not this one - Magnolia

7 Here I Am - Kelly Rowland Here I Am - Kelly Rowland

She had a very long pause but she recorded decent album - Magnolia

8 Make a Scene - Sophie Ellis-Bextor Make a Scene - Sophie Ellis-Bextor

Haha I thought she finished her career. Nice to know I was so wrong - Magnolia

9 O Holy Night - Jackie Evancho O Holy Night - Jackie Evancho

This CD allowed Jackie Evancho to break Michael Jackson's record as the youngest artist in US chart history to have Top 2 and Platinum CD.

10 Musica Alma Sexo - Ricky Martin Musica   Alma   Sexo - Ricky Martin

Really great album. I didn't like the 1st single but all the rest is awesome. Ricky is still better than cry baby E. Iglesias - Magnolia

The Contenders

11 A Thousand Suns - Linkin Park A Thousand Suns - Linkin Park

I really love these guys but I wasn't sure about this album. Silly me. It was great as always - Magnolia
