My Favorite Albums of 2012

Here’s the thing, I’m a huge fan of music and I listen to a lot of it but I don’t know the first thing of how to write about it. I can’t break down a song and say “The banjo playing on this record is top notch!” or “The production is tight and sounds crisp!” I just have no clue. So instead of giving my thoughts on the albums, I’m going to list them alphabetically and list some of my favorite songs from each one. Hopefully you’ll get some idea of my taste from that. You can also listen to my Spotify playlist containing all this music just below these words.
