Top 10 Albums | Fall 2011

5 Comments 12 | October | 2011

Fall is fast approaching.  Leaves are changing color and soon the branches will bare themselves for the coming of a new year.  At least that’s what I hear.  I live in San Diego, so the four seasons are the stuff of grade school textbooks.  I’ve also heard of a “water cycle”.  I think I’ve seen people riding one on a lake.  Anyway, it’s time for a top albums update.

Instead of rehashing a nearly unchanged Top 10 albums list I thought it’d be nice to throw a changeup (Oooooh, somebody’s been watching the baseball playoffs).  I’ve compiled a list of the 10 best albums of the last 3 months.  So if you’ve been wondering which LDD mix artists are worth pursuing further, hopefully this will give you a better idea of where to get the most bang for your buck.  Then, once that’s out of the way, I’ll reveal how the overall Top 10 list shakes out.

Great idea, right?  I thought so!  On your mark.  Get set.  Read more!!
