Top 50 Albums of 2012

Here is a list of my favorite albums released in 2012. Starting with 50 and counting down to my favorite album of the year. Also I did not include Of Monsters and Men because I’m so awesome that I predicted their success in 2011 when their album was released in Australia. Here is my 2011 list and my 2010 list, if you want to check out some great music.
