25 Best Albums Of 2012

The best albums of 2012 list. It’s very difficult to introduce, so I’ll simply say that I’ve heard a lot of people calling this a down year for music, and I wholeheartedly disagree. If you know how to dig, you’ll certainly have found some great music, as I have. Below is my final top 25, from 25-1, in album artwork. I thought there was no better way to post it. The list is at the bottom in text form, and right above it is another 1-25 sampling in a handy YouTube playlist. Enjoy.
