Best Albums of 2012

After much deliberation, I have compiled my (20) Best Albums of 2012. I owe a debt of gratitude to Spotify, which was introduced to me this year, Rolling Stones magazine and NPR’s ‘First Listen’ for being great music resources through out the year. I would love feedback and I encourage you to share your thoughts, or own lists, since I am truly curious to know what was pleasing to YOUR ear in 2012. Oh, also make sure to check out my (50) Best Songs of 2012! Enjoy!
