Top 10 Best Albums of 20122012 was a year that saw some truly groundbreaking albums released across a variety of genres. From rock and hip-hop to electronic and pop, there was no shortage of incredible music to discover and enjoy.
As music fans eagerly awaited the latest releases from their favorite artists, there was fierce competition to see which albums would come out on top. With so many great albums to choose from, it was a tough task to decide which ones were truly the best of the year.
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!
Still affects me whenever I listen to it.
Even the Beatles and Pink Floyd didn't stay with me for this long, back in the day.
Something very special here.
Wonderful performances of songs clustered around a coherent theme.
This should be first! I know this isn't my favorite of Linkin Park's albums, but it's very good.
Got to appreciate on the techno they have worked out in the whole album..
As expected and deserved #1!
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.
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 brilliant and beautiful wake up call to the world about the amazing Lana Del Rey
Number 67? A masterpiece like this album being at only 67 proves just how much of a joke this list is.
Is this like a wikipedia site or something. This album should be in top 5
She had better albums in the past but MDNA is decent dance record
As a Little Monster, we all have to addmit that MDNA is the best album from the 2010s
Quality as her old songs...
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!
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.
Good album, but far from her best.
Finally! She came back to her roots in this album. I love queen SANDRA
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.
