Best Albums of 2012

Magnolia

The Top Ten

1 Songs From the Silver Screen - Jackie Evancho Songs From the Silver Screen - Jackie Evancho

A beautiful voice singing great songs from the movies.
I like!

Wonderful performances of songs clustered around a coherent theme.

Amazing studio album to accompany Jackie's second PBS Great Performances special, "Music Of The Movies". Both are special on their own, with Chris Botti, Jumaane Smith, 2 Cellos, Joshua Bell, Caroline Campbell, The Tenors and Jacob Evancho spread between the two. Get both! - Trancas

Jackie takes familiar songs and makes them new again! - BobG

3 Good Kid, M.A.A.D City - Kendrick Lamar Good Kid, M.A.A.D City - Kendrick Lamar

Best hip-hop album of the entire year, bringing it back to what it was.

4 The Strange Case Of... - Halestorm The Strange Case Of... - Halestorm
5 L'enfant Sauvage - Gojira L'enfant Sauvage - Gojira
6 The Money Store - Death Grips The Money Store - Death Grips

Without a doubt, one of the best industrial hip hop albums out there.

7 + - Ed Sheeran + - Ed Sheeran

This is the best. Why Linkin Park always at the top? I mean I like them but they are overrated here.

If you don't like this piece of heaven, I'm seriously judging you right now

That album was releseadd in 2011 what the hell is it doing in this lit

8 At the Gates of Sethu - Nile At the Gates of Sethu - Nile
9 Resolution - Lamb of God Resolution - Lamb of God

This list is silly.. This should be in top tens. - nooreldeen

10 Umskiptar - Burzum Umskiptar - Burzum

Pretty shocked to see a Burzum album this high.

The Newcomers

? Quarter Turns Over a Living Line - Raime Quarter Turns Over a Living Line - Raime
? Uneven Compromise - Lil Ugly Mane

The Contenders

11 Lonerism - Tame Impala Lonerism - Tame Impala
12 Dark Roots of Earth - Testament Dark Roots of Earth - Testament
13 The Connection - Papa Roach The Connection - Papa Roach

Best papa roach album, and the best rock album of 2012 of course, it should be replaced by Linkin Park' living things... Because the connection is far better than the hip hops, and also after papa roach spilled some electronic sounds in it... It was a legendary piece...

Not only are Papa Roach rapping again but they've also been experimenting with other sounds like electronics and dubstep to mostly great effect. A truly awesome album.

14 Global Flatline - Aborted Global Flatline - Aborted
15 Red - Taylor Swift Red - Taylor Swift

RED has to be Taylor's best album to date. From Country to Pop to Dub to Alternative, Taylor gives her fans a little taste of everything. Simply Amazing! I have been listening to it nonstop seriously.
