2012 was one of the best year’s for music that I’ve experienced in my lifetime.  There seemed to be no end to great, epic, fun and innovative releases. The amazing music that came out crossed almost every genre and even created a few new ones. Music was alive with diversity and prideful with it’s spirit. Music in 2012 was truly GREAT.

For part 2 of my 2 part ‘Best Of’ series, I’m presenting my 25 fave records of the year. There is definitely some overlap here from my ‘Top 50 Singles’, but for the most part these records and artists stood out from any individual song.

The list below represents, in my opinion, a complete work. This is an artist performing at their fullest, start to finish. All of these records represent some sort of accomplishment for each of the artists, whether it’s a musical leap forward, a personal triumph or just a collection of really great songs. In some cases, like Chairlift, there were so many great songs it was borderline impossible to choose just one for the singles list.

So, see below and hopefully you fins something new. Hit me up on Twitter to discuss!
