"Watch the Throne" Makes Time's, The Top 10 Everything of 2011

Jay-Z and Kanye West at New Orleans Arena

Jay and Kanye's, Watch the Throne has made yet another year end list.  This time the royal duo's critically acclaimed Throne is #3 on Time's: The Top 10 Everything of 2011.  Here's what they had to say about the album:

Jay-Z, Beyonce' & Kanye Make Rolling Stone's 50 Best Albums of 2011

Watch the Throne and 4 have made another Best Albums list, this time it's Rolling Stone's 50 Best Albums of 2011.  Jay and Ye's Throne reached #2 second only to Adele's 21.  B's 4 was 25.  Here's what the famed mag had to say about both classics:

Watch the Throne, Jay-Z and Kanye West
 The most anticipated event-album of 2011 was a sound-the-trumpets supergroup record of a magnitude scarcely seen. What could have been a crash-and-burn anticlimax turned out to be as fun as any record in a dog's age. From the cinematic "No Church in the Wild" to the Stax-soul update "Otis," Throne testifies to Kanye West's genius for beats both iconoclastic and pop-savvy. Amid all the litanies of private jets and gold watches, politics creep in: The pair frame their rise as an African-American Horatio Alger story on the impossibly fierce "Ni**as in Paris."

Jay-Z , Kanye & Beyonce' All Make MTV's 20 Best Albums of 2011

MTV has put out their Top 20 Albums on 2011 list and of course The Throne and Queen B made the list.  In my opinion these are the best two albums of the year:  Best Vocals, Best Lyrics, Most Witty and in a class above the rest.  Here's what MTV had to say about the two classics.

Jay-Z and Kanye West, Watch the Throne
The year's highest-profile collaboration didn't exactly play against type — except for the fact that, unlike most other meetings-of-the-egos, it actually ended up being really good. And that's because, despite all the flash surrounding it (the globe-trotting recording sessions, the Riccardo Tisci-designed cover, the video where they sawed the top off a Maybach) and all the boasts contained within it, WTT is very much an album that grapples equally with big themes — success, race, responsibilities, public perception — and, you know, big watches. And then, of course, there's the incredibly odd "N---as in Paris," surely the first rap song to give equal face time to Will Ferrell. A weird, wonderful, whirling album — the kind that, sadly, they don't make all that often, mostly because it's impossible to do so.
