Top 100 Music Albums of 2012 by travelful (2020)

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.
- The Shins - 'Port Of Morrow' - strong 4 - light 5
-Ty Segall Band's 'Slaughterhouse' - decent 6
-Voices From The Lake self titled - decent 6

West coast pop rap

such a massive improvement from his previous few releases. the mixtape plays long, but stays relatively consistent. The feature list on this thing is crazy too, and mostly everyone is essential.

favorite tracks: We Aint Them, R.I.P, Unnecessary
