The 50 Best Albums of 2012 (Paste Magazine)

The 50 Best Albums of 2012 (Paste Magazine) | SongsSmiths | Scoop.it

"We asked 32 different staff members and music writers for their favorite albums this year. They voted for 345 different LPs—representing just a fraction of the recorded music released since Jan. 1—and we’ve narrowed it down to the 50 best. Of course, everyone’s list looks different, and ours will look different than your own. The purpose of lists like these is simply to serve as a tool for discovery and discussion. Listen to some tracks you haven’t heard, and let us know your favorites from 2012". (Paste Magazine blog)
