Top 50 Albums of 2012: 50-26

Image by:

I’ve kept a revolving top 25 since February. It reflects what I think are the best 25 records released this year at any given time. All the year-end hubbub has been much more manageable and less stressful. Still, what about the other albums whose only crime is that they aren’t quite up to the level of those I’ve included on that list? I’ve expanded it out to 50 to give a better idea of the music that made me happy in 2012. (where applicable I have included a link to my original review)
