2011 RX STAFF PICKS AGGREGATE LIST

After weeks of scrutiny, Record Exchange staffers have put the finishing touches on their 2011 Top 10 lists, and in the coming weeks we’ll be posting individual lists here on our website.

On Monday, Dec. 5, the day of our annual Bonus Club Sale, you can visit the store for the debut of the lists in realtime. The poster pictured above will be sprinkled throughout the store for your viewing pleasure, but today we’re giving you a preview with an aggregate list of our Top 20 Staff Picks.

This list was compiled by tallying the instances that certain albums appeared on individual lists. There were ties, of course, and in such cases we broke the ties for ranking purposes with actual sales figures here at the store.

Let the harsh judgment and impassioned arguments commence – see you at the Bonus Club Sale!

One thought on “2011 RX STAFF PICKS AGGREGATE LIST”

  1. I’m REALLY surprised I don’t see Charles Bradley’s “No Time For Dreaming” on this list. IMHO one of the best records released by anybody in years. Glad to see I’m not the only one who digs the new Bon Iver album. Several reviews I read considered it a sophomore slump. Guess they just missed the boat.
