Give it time and some of the tracks reveal themselves. Still not there best but overlooked nonetheless

24Spiritualized
Sweet Heart Sweet Light


There best in a while
23Cloud Nothings
Attack on Memory


Wasted Days is great
22The xx
Coexist


In the right the mood the minimalism really works. Nice record
21Deftones
Koi No Yokan


Great album but how it ended up album of the year on here I don't know
20Chromatics
Kill For Love


That Neil Young cover
19Enslaved
RIITIIR


One of the best black metal albums recently
18Clubroot
III - MMXII


Stellar production on this, can't pick a favourite track
17Grizzly Bear
Shields


Sleeping Ute and Yet Again were summer jams
16Killer Mike
R.A.P. Music


What a team these two are
15Pallbearer
Sorrow And Extinction


Those soundscapes...
14White Suns
Sinews


There new one is great too, so happy I found this band
13Beach House
Bloom


Underrated, its not just reverb
12Converge
All We Love We Leave Behind


When will they release a bad album?
11Fiona Apple
The Idler Wheel...


Oddball songs by an oddball
10Frank Ocean
Channel Orange


Pyramids one of the songs of 2012
9Flying Lotus
Until the Quiet Comes


His most accessible record. Preferred Caravan of Delight to Phantasm tho
8Death Grips
The Money Store


Don't think they'll top this
7 Godspeed You! Black Emperor
'Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend!


Two of the best tracks this decade
6Actress
R.I.P


Futuristic shit, inspired by Paradise Lost apparently. Grows on you a lot
5Andy Stott
Luxury Problems


So heavy, yet beautiful when coupled with the vocal samples. Some of the best dub techno i've heard
4Tame Impala
Lonerism


They blew up after this. Pretty accessible yet still psychedelic. No weak tracks. My family like this
3Kendrick Lamar
good kid, m.A.A.d city


Great beats, great storytelling, great skits. Well done
2Swans
The Seer


Monolithic. Releasing this and To Be Kind in the space of a few years is incredible. Weird seeing a band peak so late in their career
1Burial
Kindred


An undeniable classic. It may be an EP (a long one however) yet the ground it covers trumps anything this decade so far. Genius
