As 2011 quickly winds to an end, we’re happy to roll out our fourth and final days’ worth of results from our second-annual Slicing Up Eyeballs Readers Poll, in which nearly 500 of you cast ballots for your favorite music of the year. Today, we bring you the big one: The best albums of 2011.
This week’s new releases include brand-new albums from Thomas Dolby (first in 20 years!), Magazine (first in 30 years!) and Skinny Puppy, plus the U.S. version of The Smiths’ deluxe ‘Complete’ box set, the Peter Gabriel ‘New Blood: Live in London’ DVD/Blu-ray and ‘Fac. Dance,’ a compilation of Factory Records 12-inches.
With their 11th album arriving next week, electro-industrial icons Skinny Puppy offer up the first taste of the record via a stream of the song ‘Village.’ The track, which premiered at RevolverMag.com last week, can be heard here.
Electro-industrial icons Skinny Puppy this weekend announced the release this fall of the long-delayed ‘Handover,’ the group’s 11th studio album and first in more than four years.
