Yes, I realize most people had their lists up since December, but as my longtime peeps know, I rank my fave albums by the number of times I listen to em start to end in the calendar year. The more times album X flows in the ear canals, the higher on the chart album X will sit. So between that, tabulation time and all the regular stuff the ticking of time plants in front of you, the list is finally here.
2012 in general? Sadly enough, it was figuring out how awesome 2011 was. As my post last year will attest
, I dug myself quite the musical hole last year, so a good chunk of my listening time was reflecting back on the stuff I missed out on. (And again, although it's said countless times, I will say it again: there is stuff from every year that slips between the cracks, at least around here.) This is where a handy dandy revised 2011 best of would be a welcome sight, but, uh, it is still be tabulated. But take my word for it that it would/will look quite different from the list I posted.
