The best albums of 2012

2012 brought a whole bunch of good albums, but very few that really fucked me up the way I like it.

When checking Pitchfork, The Wire or whatever shit that’s hot right now, I realize I’ve only heard three or four albums on their lists. Maybe that’s a good thing…

The albums listed with cover art are those that seriously messed with my mind, i.e. they are insanely good. The rest is also well worth your attention. Check them out!
