2011 in Gilman music

I've decided to put together a top 45 list out of some of the albums I've listened to in the past year. This isn't a list of top albums that came out in 2011, it's a list of my personal favorites that I first heard in 2011. I was able to get in one album on most nights in the spring but slacked quite a bit in the fall. If you like any one band on here I encourage you to check out the others.

Bonus drinking game: take a drink every time Stereolab is mentioned.
