I'd take my 2011 AOTY over anything from this year but I still have a clear AOTY for 2012 and think it was probably a better year overall.

masked intruder.
but i didn't feel there was any great pop punk release of the year.

not expecting my list to change too much, I'll have one here soon.

On the Impossible Past single handedly ruled my 2012

Will start working on my list now, a lot of my best albums were released earlier this year so I need to go back and relisten i.e. Enter Shikari, Sharks, No Trigger.
