DeRogatis’s 10 Worst Albums Of 2011

By Amrit Singh / November 21, 2011

In time for Thanksgiving, famed Lester Bangs acolyte Jim DeRogatis has tapped his inner crank (aka his crank) to kick off list-season with 2011’s Top 10 Turkeys. (That is, records that are dry and devoid of life and the consumption of which will make you lazy and gassy.) At this point, ‘Gum-commenter punchline trends dictate that the #1 selection on any list like this is a foregone conclusion, and to that end, Mr. DeRo does not disappoint. The next nine, however, probably include most of the albums that will top most of the lists for the year’s best, so consider yourself BAITED. Jive:

10 Drake – Take Care
09 St. Vincent – Strange Mercy
08 P.J. Harvey – Let England Shake
07 Art Brut – Brilliant! Tragic!
06 Adele – 21
05 Lady Gaga – Born This Way
04 Coldplay – Mylo Xyloto
03 Björk – Biophilia
02 Bon Iver – Bon Iver
01 Lou Reed & Metallica – Lulu

Shots fired, Corban and Kelly. Read the reasoning over at DeRo’s spot.
