Top 100 Music Albums of 2012 by travelful (2019)

« View previous chartView next chart »

2012 snapshot.

Every album I listen to will be included on here, even if I hated it. You may also notice some higher rated albums in the comments, while some albums I hated are still featured in the chart. This is because I create my yearly charts as "snapshots" of the music scene from that year. From these I create my decade charts, where you will find no filler. Basically anything rated 60% or higher I recommend depending on your tastes.

other albums heard in 2012:

-Blue Sky Black Death & Nacho Picasso - 'Lord of The Fly' - light 6
-First Aid Kit's 'The Lions Roar" - 5/10
-Sufjan Steven's 'Silver & Gold' -- if its Christmas Eve/Day then sure, otherwise probably not.
-Ty Segall Band's 'Slaughterhouse' - decent 6
-Voices From The Lake self titled - decent 6
