So, here is a lengthy list of my personal favorite albums/releases from 2012. These aren’t arranged in any specific order. I just wrote them down as I thought of them. I don’t really feel a need to go into detail about these albums, seeing as about half of them have already been reviewed or don’t really fall into the genres covered by this blog.

I won’t state how incredible this year was.

This may seem to be a bit of an unusual selection for this site to review, but I can honestly say that it’s not. Modern day experimental music and drone owes so much to what these guys did in the past, that it makes total sense that it should be reviewed here.
