Top 20 Albums of 2011: 14-13

14. Will Young - Echoes

The 2011 version of a George Michael album. It took awhile for this to stick with me, but once it did, I was really enchanted. I've never completely enjoyed a Will Young album before. His music has always been too... well... boring for me. With Echoes, though, he struck the perfect balance between ballad and uptempo, organic and electronic. The best "grown up" pop album of the year.

13. Mohombi - Movemeant

This album kind of came out of nowhere. With its synthesized Red One production and Afro-Caribbean sound, this was the perfect soundtrack to the Spring and Summer. It borrows many of the tricks of 2011 pop music but gives it a personal, unique edge that makes the album stand out. Plus, it's catchy as hell. Every single track.
