Top 50 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.
