Best Albums of 2012

The Top Ten

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

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!

A beautiful album from a truly gifted singer.

2 Living Things - Linkin Park Living Things - Linkin Park Product Image

Awesome album - just like everything from LP

Got to appreciate on the techno they have worked out in the whole album..

LP are going in a good direction with this album, the best album
Overexposed is second

As expected and deserved #1!

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

Oh heck, one of the ultimate best rap albums of all time and one of the best concept albums of all time.

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

4 The Money Store - Death Grips The Money Store - Death Grips Product Image

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

Not quite getting Death Grips yet, but I do like it.

The best ever made brotha

5 The Strange Case Of... - Halestorm The Strange Case Of... - Halestorm Product Image
6 Lonerism - Tame Impala Lonerism - Tame Impala Product Image

Very underrated, but great

7 Stronger - Kelly Clarkson Stronger - Kelly Clarkson Product Image

OK, it was released in the late 2011 but a huge success and biggest hit "What Doesn't Kill You (Stronger)" came in 2012

THIS SONG IS INSPIRATIONAL JUST LIKE KELLY CLARKSON!

8 Channel Orange - Frank Ocean Channel Orange - Frank Ocean Product Image

Is this like a wikipedia site or something. This album should be in top 5

Number 67? A masterpiece like this album being at only 67 proves just how much of a joke this list is.

Jesus Christ! This is easily the best of 2012
P.S. Why is Jackie Evancho #1 on like every list?

Jackie Evancho is not at the top of every list. There are over 140 lists in which Jackie is included but does not hold the top spot. Also, there are hundreds of lists in which Jackie does not appear at all, such as those dealing with rock, rap, soul, jazz, blues, metal, guitarists and other instrument-players, any time frame before 2008, musicals, theater, dance and other performing arts. - BobG

Finally! She came back to her roots in this album. I love queen SANDRA

So underrated. This talented woman deserves much more

She's amazing

14 Red - Taylor Swift Red - Taylor Swift Product Image

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.

Let vote for her Swifters-:) go

MY favorite TAYLOR ALBUM PEOPLE

All too Well gives this already terrific album it's final, shiny polish. The perfect and dramatically astounding lyricism tied in with the emotion make the song an undeniable masterpiece of 2012. "Holy Ground" is a great rapping song, while the duets "Everything Has Changed" and "The Last Time" both feature amazing male-female voice duos and guitar riffs. "I Knew You Were Trouble" really showcases how mature Taylor has become, branching off from her typical country and country pop sound and displaying her variety, while "22" and "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" are great pop bluff!

Overall, a 9/10!

15 Dance Again... the Hits - Jennifer Lopez Dance Again... the Hits - Jennifer Lopez Product Image

Awesome collection of J. Lo's greatest hits

16 MDNA - Madonna MDNA - Madonna Product Image

This is a great album and so underrated

People say its crap compared to her others that's because her others are just the BEST while this is good

She had better albums in the past but MDNA is decent dance record

Get over it!

It's the best

This album is the Masterpiece of 2012

17 Night Visions - Imagine Dragons Night Visions - Imagine Dragons Product Image

Come on people. This is one of the best albums I've heard in years, and yet it's behind Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj? What has our world come to? Recognize good music, people.

Listen to "Nothing Left To Say", you'll know what I mean.

Wow way too far down on the list

Number 2 behind G.K.M.C.
