captains dead's top 14 records of 2011

well, here it is the unofficial captains dead top 14 of the year list. i say unofficial because as there are a few more contributors lurking about, they may have their own top whatever list, and i hope they share said list with the class. not much has changed since i did my premature list back a few months ago. at least in the top 5/6 department. i went through the site and re-listened to everything i had tagged as “best of 2011” and after listening to these records, some changes definitely needed to be made. most notably the inclusion of wooden wand’s briarwood, southeast engine’s canary and chris bathgate’s salt year, all of which are phenomenal pieces of work. so with nothing left to say, here it is…
