If any of you have been paying attention to me this year, You’ll all know what my favorite reissues of 2011 are. But for those who have been sleeping, here you go:
The birth of grunge. RIP, Kurt.
Queen, Various Discs
It’s been 20 years today that Freddie Mercury passed away, but damn, it’s still rocks. Sheer Hear Attack, Queen, Queen II, A Night at the Opera… you can’t go wrong.
Where shoegazing began…
Marvin Gaye, What’s Going On
You cannot discount this album. An absolute classic.
Archers of Loaf, Icky Mettle
A great noise art rock album. These guys were brilliant.
U2, Achtung Baby
Probably the greatest reinvention of all time. This album is a pure classic, and one of my favorite of all time. Nary a misstep here.
So Cruel (covered by Depeche Mode for AHK-toong BAY-bi Covered)
Ultraviolet (Light My Way)– Live on 360 Tour
