Thread: TOP 10 ALBUMS OF 2012

  1. #1

    Default TOP 10 ALBUMS OF 2012

    What are your Top 10 Albums of 2012??? In descending order starting with bestest.........

    1,2 Tie.
    Parov Stelar - The Princess (Part Two)
    Deadmau5 - Album Title Goes Here
    3. The Presets - Pacifica
    4. Gossip - A Joyful Noise
    5. Hot Chip - In Our Heads
    6. Yeasayer - Fragrant World
    7. Van She - Idea of Happiness
    8. Grimes - Visions
    9. The XX - Coexist
    10. Poolside - Pacific Standard Time

    Of Honorabe Mention:

    Miike Snow - Happy To You
    Metric - Synthetica

    Of Honorable EP Mention:

    The M Machine - Metropolis Part I
    Disclosure - The Face

    P.P.P.S. - I fully expect 13/14 of these artists to appear on the 2013 lineup poster :-) Just a music lover's intuition speaking ;-) If these 13 don't make the lineup, GV has dropped the ball as far as I'm concerned.

    Who's your guess if you had to pick one of these artists you expect to NOT appear on the poster this year??? I have my answer ;-)

    Of YOUR Top 10, whom do you FEEL will be at Coachella this year? not HOPE or WISH, but FEEL, BELIEVE, KNOW???!!! ;-)

    It's unfortunate that there isn't a sub-forum available to discuss non-coachella-related music topics.
    10/8 - Little Dragon @ Marquee (Tempe, AZ)
    10/11 - Carolina Chocolate Drops @ Rialto Theater (Tucson, AZ)
    11/10 - The Black Keys @ US Airways Center (Phoenix, AZ)
    4/10/15 - 4/12/15 - Coachella

    I'd love it if you did it again. It's entertaining to see how blah we are.

    But, to be fair, last year was horribly blase for new music in general.

    How can you all rank things and give them a numerical value of worth when they're each a different product from the rest
