2012 has been a great year for music, but not one that needs introduction. As many of you know I’m an avid fan of every genre of music. This year I was able to listen to 183 records (full legnth LPs, EPs, mixtapes, etc.) from 2012 (not including another 50+ albums from before 2012) with at least 5 listens on each album (though likely near 10+.)
Below there are 40 albums (+11 honorable mentions) and 20 songs (+5 honorable mentions) that I felt classified as the best music of the year. You can use the tabs above to navigate through my review of the best music of 2012.
