this year was really shit

pretty much, usually in a year there's like a small bunch of albums that really feel like classics, but this year feels really mediocre.

2011, what a fucking terrible year.

no nicolas jaar yet??? fuck wrong with u herbs?

hey bro i cbf wiking when space is only noise release date cuz it says on my media player 2010 so i assume it was released in 2010 but yeah def in the top lists. 2011 was def a top year for electronic music i can guarantee that much but on the indie rock spectrum nothing was attention worthy even by pitchforks standards *lol*. 2011 was also fake hip hop golden age as well.

2011 was also fake hip hop golden age as well.

not sure what you're talking about but this year was all about 'underground' internet rappers a lot of which were atleast mildly interesting.

the people in my list plus Action Bronson, Young L, Lil B, eXquire, DZA, Curren$y and his dudes, Schoolboy and the rest of TDE, Danny's crew, Odd Future, Roc Marciano, Gibbs, Gunplay, Gunplay, Gunplay.

but I could give a fuck about 'real hip hop'
