The Pure Pop Pub's Top 15 For 2011

I know, 15 is a weird number. In any case here they go:

1. Wild Bores - Welldone & Charred
2. The Smithereens - 2011
3. The Red Button - As Far As Yesterday Goes
4. Bic Runga - Belle
5. Scott Gagner - Rhapsode in Blonde
6. Meyerman - Who Do You Think You Are?
7. Fountains of Wayne - Sky Full of Holes
8. Peter Baldrachi - Tomorrow Never Knows
9. Wiretree - Make Up
10. Secret Powers - What Every Rose Grower Should Know
11. Tim Butler - All The Rest
12. The Wellingtons - In Transit
13. Buffalo Tom - Skins
14. Gary Ritchie - Hum, Sing....Repeat
15. PopFilter - Pop This!

Some of these I've not had a chance to do a full on review for. I hope to change that at some point in the future.


  1. The Red Button record was my fave this year. Great choice, nice list.

  2. Yeah, I think I like this one a little bit more than their first one even. (I believe that puts me in a minority.)


  3. They are very different records, but I too, like the latest one. The thing is the quality of the songwriting is the best out there IMHO.


Best of 2024

 I'm gonna get a head start on next year's Best Of list.
