What are 2011's most anticipated albums?
Kanye West wasn't quite finished dominating the entertainment news cycle this week, when a new collaboration with Jay-Z leaked, positioning their new album already as one of next year's most anticipated.
It apparently also made some people start compiling their wish-lists for the new year. Stereogum ran their top 50 today, with Kanye/Jay-Z landing at 48, and Lady Gaga at 21. As most of these things go, almost half the list is wish-fulfillment - at least that many albums have no announced released dates.
On my list? Polly. Jean. Harvey. Three years is way too long. My favorite Irish lady Roisin Murphy might - just might - finally release a follow-up to "Overpowered." And from what Thrill Jockey tells me, Future Islands will follow up their "In Evening Air" in late 2011.
