The King Of Limbs is the only album I even know I like from 2011.
Youth Lagoon - The Year Of Hibernation would be another one I just recently found.
PJ Harvey - Let England Shake
Tom Waits - Bad As Me
Laura Marling - A Creature I Don't Know.

Black Stone Cherry- Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

This.

Charlie Simpson - Young Pilgrim

Paramore's new song, In the Mourning is pretty awesome.

Slash- Self-titled

Alter Bridge AB III

Kate Voegele - Gravity Happens. It's a great pop album.
#16
Sylosis- Edge of the Earth

And the new Staind self titled album is alright, but sounds a little uninspired so I'm not sure that that's a "best of 2011" album
