Today seems like a fine day to kick off a thread for the gratuitous listing of everybody's favorite albums of 2012. What did you love? How much bullshit was that other guy's list that said some terrible garbage was the best thing ever? What are you looking forward to in 2013? I refuse on principal to start writing up my own list until 2013, but the top two spots are already spoken for, and if any of you steal my thunder I will a) silently congratulate your excellent taste and b) curse you for stealing my thunder. Still need to check out a couple of releases as well before I round out the top ten.
