I know that I am missing a lot of music. But, like I said, I get stuck on the same albums. On any given day this year, one of these albums is what would have been playing.
If I had to pick one favorite, I'd have to be honest and say that the Fleet Foxes album hits me in ways I was so unprepared for. When I look at how many times I've played that album I'm a little in shock. It's gotten played nearly everyday since it was released. I'm sure I'm forgetting some albums, too. Forgive me.
I do have an honorary mention:
The Muppets Stdrk
We are fans of the actual movie soundtrack---with movie dialogue placed throughout! If you could only hear my two year old son sing this with my six year old daughter you would get why we are a Muppets family. This is probably one of my favorite movies of the year too.
What are your favorites from the year???
