Best of 2011: Al Goldberg’s Top 5 CDs

The BoDeans: Indigo Dreams

Although I didn’t make it out to as many shows as I would’ve liked, there were certainly many CDs purchased this past year. Not all of them came out in 2011, however, so it would be hard to substantiate a Top 10. Here though, are my personal Top 5…

5. Sam Llanas’ “4 A.M. (The Way Home)”

4. Glen Campbell’s “Ghost on the Canvas”

3. Foo Fighters’ “Wasting Light”

2. R.E.M.’s “Collapse into Now”

1. BoDeans’ “Indigo Dreams”
