|Top 25 Of 2012|
After much deliberation and a lot of music listening, I've narrowed down my list to a top 50. 50 at first seemed a bit excessive, and to some probably the placement of anything beyond 20 could be interchangeable. Not to me though, some of these I just loved more than others, but feel it necessary to praise the lower end of my list. I've never done a list this large before but here goes. Keep in mind.. this is my list, not yours, so if you disagree... that sucks I guess. I don't forsee anything else releasing this year to catch my eye.

The Wolf, The Seer Returns, Song for a Warrior

|You want to love "For the Love of Ivy"? See them close with it. It's amazing. I honestly thought it was their worst song until I saw it live.|
|"blowing your load a little early, don't you think? I mean it's still November. "|
The only release I can immediately think of that comes out next month is Amia Venera.
|The only thing that I can think of that MAY come out is MBV's as of yet untitled, probably not gonna happen, mystery LP. |
Also, yes, there are albums on here rated by Pitchfork. They were also reviewed by Drowned in Sound, Popmatters, Rolling Stone, Consequence of Sound, and various other media sources.
|Missing Kendrick Lamar and Frank Ocean lmao |

I can't think of any, but I'll catch whatever's released and a lot of it will probably fill up end of year lists. Same happened last year, after all: things just pop up.
