2012 Top Ten Albums

December 14, 2012

Without further ado, my top 10 albums of the year, with honorable mentions in no particular order:

  1. Twin Shadow – Confess
  2. Recomposed by Max Richter: Vivaldi, The Four Seasons
  3. Lone – Galaxy Garden
  4. Daphni – Jiaolong
  5. John Talabot – Fin
  6. CFCF – Exercises
  7. Dinosaur Jr. – I Bet on Sky
  8. Clark – Iradelphic
  9. Stars – The North
  10. Efterklang – Piramida

Honorable Mention

Overall, it was a pretty strong year for new music. Out of the 64 albums that I listened to, 25 were above average in my opinion.

This list also is albums only. My top EPs for the year were Burial’s Kindred and THGHT’s self titled EP.

Update: It was pointed out that Making Mirrors was a 2011 release, which indeed it was, so it has been stricken from the list.
