The prestigious American medium Pitchfork is reviewing this week what he has given of himself this year in terms of music. If he first revealed last days the 100 songs of the year as well as the positions from 50 to 20 of albums, today has been when he has revealed the 20 best albums of this 2011.

The number 1 has been for Good Iver With his second album "Bon Iver, Bon Iver" he has become successful beyond the independent circuit with a masterpiece that is delicate and beautiful. PJ Harvey, Destroyer, Girls or St. Vicent are other artists and groups that appear in the first positions.

Among the albums that were not "best new music" in their day and finally do appear on the list are two albums by Beyoncé and the debut of Katy b. Personally, I would have preferred “Hurry Up, We're Dreaming” by M83 as album of the year, since after more than a decade it seems that with this album M83 it has been consecrated with a work of 22 themes in which no theme seems filled.

In any case the disk of Good Iver It seems like a timeless classic, which surely the passage of time will not do any harm. Below we show the 20 best albums according to this medium.
