Best of 2011: Cassettes

This list represents my twenty favorite analog releases of the year.  I chose to limit the following to only what I physically own, which makes the task manageable and stays true to the intended medium.  No links are included in this post but most titles can be found using the search bar on this site.  Top long play records will be the next and final post of 2011, thank you for reading.
