Hello good folk of the internet. This is the homepage for the 2011 countdown of Just Played’s Albums of the Year.
The complete list of thirty has now been revealed and you can read each write up by clicking on the album titles below. Once you’re there, a click on the album’s artwork should have it playing in Spotify within a matter of moments. Please, feel free to take issue with anything I’ve said or to simply put a nice polite “I agree” at the bottom of any or all of those pieces.
It’s now time to find out what you, the splendid readers, think are the albums of 2011. To entice you, one lucky person who replies with their list will be plucked out at random to receive a rare Low Anthem ‘Smart Flesh Extras’ 10″, a copy of the Just Played single of the year from The National on very limited edition 7″ and various other promo gubbins along with a copy of my 2011 compilation. All you need to do is reply on this page with your albums of the year list (minimum of three, please.) You can explain why they’re your favourites if you wish – which would be nice – but do not feel obliged. Please spread the word as it would be great to see as many lists as possible on here. You have until the end of 2011 to post your list if you wish to be considered for the prize draw. Fire away!
