Best of 2011: miscellaneous albums

Usually I would follow-up yesterday's Best EPs of the year post with one of the top 10 miscellaneous albums (b-sides, live records, remixes, tributes, soundtracks, etc).  This year though I had a real problem coming up with 10 titles that I would recommend.

So instead you get five:
5. Various- Germs of Perfection: A Tribute To Bad Religion
4. Screaming Trees- Last Words: The Final Recordings
3. Various- SPIN Presents Newermind: A Tribute Album
2. The Twilight Singers- Live In New York
1. Various- Rave On Buddy Holly

Avoid: She & Him- A Very She & Him Christmas; Scott Weiland- The Most Wonderful Time of the Year; Rah Rah- Breaking Hearts Rahmixes; Johnny Cash- Bootleg Vol 3- Live Around The World; Kate Bush- Director's Cut; Radiohead- TKOL RMX 1234567
