|My Top 7 Songs Of 2012|
I wish I could list my favourite albums of this year, I simply haven't listened many of them. I will list my personal favourite songs of 2012 from each different bands I listened this year.
Zero Dark Thirty
While all his songs leave me clueless what they are about, I still like Aesop Rock for his smooth flow and abstract beats. Zero Dark Thirty showcases what Aesop Rock?s about.
I like playful and goofy songs and Regina Spektor seems to make the type of songs I enjoy. While she can craft sorrowful and solemn sounding songs, in her new album, it sounds more eclectic and playful. As usual all her songs are great but I loved the song Oh Marcello for its consistent quality and it?s short and sweet.
I was fond of Deftone?s last album a lot. It was immediately catchy and memorable however with their latest album, that wasn?t really the case. Save for their first single Leathers, all of the songs are deeply layered and taking a bit of time to appreciate. This is why I?ll for now go with Leathers as my personal favourite song. It also reminds me of Deftone?s earlier albums in the late 90?s era.
Mother of the World
The Seer would be my first introduction to The Swans. I bought the album because the cover fascinated me a lot. I don?t know what to say about the album yet. It?s very intimidating and yet unable to form a final impression on this album yet. What I know is, there are a few songs I enjoy a lot. The one I enjoy the most is Mother of the World. This band just might have the most enigmatic sound I?ve ever heard. It?s unnerving and atmospheric at the same time. It may sound tedious but for me the buildup was worth waiting. Still I don?t get many of their songs yet.

Ain't That A Bitch
I don't know about this band too much nor what this song is about but it doesn't really matter because this song is awesome. It reminds me a little of Faith No More mainly because of the singer's voice and also of System of a Down because the song sounds a bit like a carnival music. While all their songs are equally as good, for some reason, this song left the most impression on me.
All We Love We Leave Behind
The only album I got beside this is Jane Doe but I got just enough to know this band really knows what they are doing. The title song from their latest album feels epic as soon as the song opens with the power chord and building up to the emotional intensity all the way to the end. This time I can feel some sort of desperation and sorrow in the singer's voice. This song accomplishes a lot in mere 4 minutes.
I'm not exactly Rush fanboy but this song really felt relevant to me. The solo and the outro is what made the song even more so emotional and masterful.
