good to see zomby on here

i own 2 of the top 20 albums - both tim hecker records

i found some of their classifications weird though... like why doesn't andy stott's records classify as albums? and why isn't lego feet's ep on the reissue list?

great list on the whole though, even though i haven't heard much of it - must have listened to too much edm in 2011 i guess...

Weird. I'm only just now looking at lists. I completely missed most of them when they were first popping up. I'll take a look at this soon.

Good to see Tom Waits, Wire, Psychic Paramount and Wolves of the Throne Room on the albums list, but why is Jackie-o Mofo so completely ignored?

Wow. Worst album to Bon Iver?

Of course it's not the best... far fucking from it... but those tunes are decent. It doesn't belong on a best of list, but it definitely isn't the worst.

I completely agree......in past years, they had more classifications for voting.

Jon Witney is the power behind Brainwashed.com. He also maintains / host all of the artist websites listed on the Brainwashed artist page......as well as Kranky.net I wish Brainwashed.com would reveal how many votes were actually submitted. Even though I'm a weekly visitor to the website, I've never voted simply because I'm only able to listen to a handful of new releases each year. If it's a group / release I'm not familiar with, I usually wait until I see one of you at SYG listening to / raving about the same release before taking full notice of it.

Earth, Current 93, Barn Owl, Zola Jesus, Low and SYR 9 are releases I own / have listen to multiple, multiple times in 2011.
