How we made the list

To pull together the Best of 2011 list, we did a sweep of sources including the BBC, NME, Guardian, Pitchfork, Q, Rock Sound, The Observer, The Independent, Resident Advisor, The Telegraph and Drowned in Sound.

After scouring ratings and reviews for hundreds of releases we came out of a small room with this list - our top 100 picks of the most acclaimed albums of the year.
