    My main gripe is it's not even December. I already love the.new Scott Walker and the Colin Stetson/Mats Gustaffson albums, for example

    I don't know, the Wild Nothing, Grimes, DIIV and Purity Ring albums define mediocrity.

    I have to answer this for my buddy who is starting to compile his 2012 review radio show. To be honest not finding it easy at this stage.

    Darren Hayman And The Long Parliament -'The Violence' has been a recent favorite. Leonard Cohen's 'Old Ideas' has been consistently played and Graham Coxon's 'A+E'. Nothing has really stood out and grabbed me this year.

    I was actually quite a fan of the Purity Ring album. Not anything mindblowing, but catchy fun stuff.

    So whats your list, if you feel the need to say all of the major music sites, blogs etc are going to release ''predicatable'' lists?

    And the good folks over at KCRW continue to prove they have the most boring taste in music imaginable. I mean, that Poolside album is nice and sunny and fun and all, but top 10? Come on.
    If it was kroq instead of kcrw, it would probably be the same, except instead of Poolside, it would be Mumford and Sons.

    It's an album that makes a bigger impact after repeat listens. I felt it was mediocre at first too. After seeing the band perform live, it all sorta clicked for me. I love the lyrics. And they (J. Tillman especially) are very entertaining live.

    To be fair, I'm mainly a fan of this album due to how good it all sounds live. Would have loved Albini to have worked his raw magic on it.

    That's because its been a very unspectacular year from an album perspective. Not a bad year overall lots of fun tracks from a wide variety of artists but next to no great albums. So I expect wider than usual variation on this years list as they all decide which of these years mediocre titles they must choose from to fill their best of slots...add to that the fact that two of the years genuinely best albums...Swans The Seer and Death Grips The Money Store...are so out there that a lot of these publications actually risk losing readership by promoting them...its going to be a confusing year in the best of department compared to the last three where Animal Collective Kanye and PJ Harvey were runaway choices.

    For my money The Seer stands head and shoulders over everything else this year but also really enjoyed Liars latest, Allo Darlings Europe, The Money Store, Shields, Redd Kross Researching the Blues, Menomena, First Aid Kit, Dr. John, El-p, Anais 's Mitchell's Young Man In America, Japandroids, The Men, Django Django, Cat Power, GY!BE, and guilty pleasure time Gotyes Making Mirrors, which was way more eclectic than I Anticipated.

    They liked it I didn't...new Dylan, new Jack White, Alt-j, Sharon. Van etan, Fiona's Apple, Julia Holter

    Most of these early lists are from the UK, and there's been a huge role reversal between UK and rest of music world. Where English artists used to be constantly going for the cutting edge...England now trends towards classic rock and Brit pop preservation, so their rags tend to favor those types of artist over Hip Hop, Electronic, and American lo- fi punk/garage rock.

    Case in point - Mojo last year had Florence And The Machines Ceremonials at #1 in 2011

    I thought this was one of the most fertile years for good releases in a long time, even if there were a ton of disappointments from a lot of my standbys.

    I think The Weeknd's Trilogy is more of a re-release than a release.

    Yeah, definitely 2011. And I *suppose* if we lived in a non-internet world, Gotye's album could be considered 2012 since it didn't get a US release until this year, but most everyone who has heard that album heard it last year.
    10/01 - King Crimson - Orpheum
    10/10 - Thurston Moore/Sebadoh - Echoplex (?)
    10/11 - BADBADNOTGOOD - Echoplex (?)

    People who choose El-P's Cancer4Cure over Killer Mike's R.A.P. Music are wrong about everything forever. And I say this as an El-P fanboy.

    Animal Collective's top 10 things of 2012

    * Micachu & The Shapes - Never (and live shows)
    * Various Artists - Personal Space: Electronic Soul 1974-1984
    * Todd Terje - "Inspector Norse" video
    * Louie Season 3
    * Actress - R.I.P.
    * Georgia Anne Muldrow - Seeds
    * Black Dice - Mr. Impossible
    * Dinner at Gu's Bistro in Atlanta, GA
    * Dinner at Selamat Makan in Utrecht, NL
    * Noel Fielding's Luxury Comedy

    TOP 10 of 2012 by AMANDA PALMER

    1. Regina Spektor - What We Saw From The Cheap Seats (key track "Oh Marcello") -
    The Spektor is back. This record made me so so happy, Regina's sounding more like Regina to me.
    2. Ben Folds Five - The Sound of the Life of the Mind (key tracks "Erase me", "Draw A Crowd")
    Ben Folds spills his heart out, random pieces falling on the piano at 183787 miles per hour. He's deep here. Plus he's funny as FUCK.
    3. Fiona Apple- "Every Single Night" -
    WEIRDEST EAR-WORM OF THE YEAR, this song.
    4. David Byrne's book "How Music Works"
    David tells you how it is. This is a smart, smart man. Listen.
    5. "Call Me Maybe"
    I can't help it. The first time I heard it, I went back and listened to it 12 more times the same day. Crack song.
    6. The Extra Action Marching Band
    I love these guys and ran into them by accident in Berlin, 5 hours later they were gigging in my gallery's parking lot. Gotta love it. Pretty naked too, which is awesome.
    7. Richard Thompson in Edinburgh: key songs "Beeswing", "52 Vincent Black Lightening"
    I'd never seen him live, and within a few songs, I became a devotee. After seeing them live, I played these two songs over and over and over again all summer. They calmed me. And both make me cry if I'm even remotely on the edge.
    8. Heather Christian and the Carbonauts
    Best new act out of NYC - caught in Boston.
    9. Jherek Bischoff - Composed
    I'm biased because he's also my bass player, but this album is just a fucking winner all around...Jherek is the new voice of arrangement and orchestra. Singers & guests on the album include David Byrne, Mirah Zeitlyn, Caetano Veloso, SoKo, Nels Cline and Greg Saunier.
    10. Leonard Cohen - Old Ideas
    Bought it for a road trip along with 4-5 other new CDs that came out early in the year. Hated everything else. Loved this. Classic Leonard, back to basics - talking the pained perfect poems in that perfect voice. It's a truth record.

    My thoughts exactly. The album did nothing for me until I saw them live, by chance, at the capitol hill block party in Seattle. I've seen them 2 more times since then and have learned to love the album. The live show is so much fun and really brings the songs to life.
    This ain't no middle of the mall shit.

    I just want to head butt Amanda Palmer repeatedly. But that Waterloo list has a ton of stuff I need to check out.

    I don't see what's wrong with Regina Spektor, Ben Folds, Fiona Apple, David Byrne, Richard Thompson, and Leonard Cohen.

    shame to see everything surrounding the Frank Ocean album take over the actual music. Miguel put out the best R&B album this year, not Frank Ocean.

    Well, I dislike both Regina Spektor and Ben Folds, but whenever I see her name I just want to dropkick her. She annoys the shit outta me.

    And no, Miguel's album was not better than Frank Ocean's.
