Top 20 Albums of 2011: 18-17

18. Example - Playing In The Shadows

Though it still wasn't perfect, with each album release Example comes closer and closer to the artist that I think he can be. Preceded by amazing singles, Playing In The Shadows includes some unreleased gems, most notably the opening track, which shows how epic Example music is at its best. I still think, even though this is distinctly British, an album like this could make a huge splash in America.

17. Cher Lloyd - Sticks & Stones

If this debut would have totally lived up to the promise Lloyd showed on X-Factor, it would be a lot higher on the list. Even so, it's a pleasant pop album without one skippable track. That's a pretty huge accomplishment in 2011, where most pop albums could really have been cut in half and been all the better for it. The album succeeded in carving out a spot for Lloyd in the charts, and has a ton of potential singles just waiting to be released.
