Best of 2011: Staff Picks – Honorable Mentions

posted on Dec.16, 2011

We’ve already detailed the Top Albums of the year by most plays on the station, but we thought we’d go further this year and select some albums that the WTSR staff thought should be highlighted. This year has been an amazing year for music. The following albums didn’t quite make our top albums list, but are worthy of a mention. Many of these releases are debuts whose follow-ups are highly anticipated in hopes that they will build on what they started.

The following list is in alphabetical order and we’ve provided a number of different ways to listen to the album!

Take a look through our list and keep an eye out for our Top Albums of 2011 list coming soon!
