Stoked to see No Trigger on this list, Tycoon is definitely one of the most overlooked records from this year.
Would've been higher too, had I not given points to another artist by accident ha.

Can't speak for the rest but MCS's Go is far from terrible.
Yup. Love the lyrics, as expected.

Man, MDAM are one of my favorite bands but it blows my mind to see EYEL ranked so high on so many lists. I thought it was full of good ideas, just with less-than-good execution.

Crazy to see a local band from my area make the #1 spot. Unreal

Taylor Swift should not be on this list...not when bands like From Indian Lakes are releasing such a masterful album.

Hot Chip, Ellie Goulding, Of Monsters and Men, Walk the Moon, and Fiona Apple were my tops this year.

Some decent stuff on this list, though.

goddamn I love this list! Such a great year again for music. Let us know what you think about the list - what you agree with or what you disagree with?

Definitely think this list represents our staff's eclectic tastes.
Personally glad to see Anberlin in the Top 10.

Very happy with this list. Great to see The Menzingers pull off the win. My #1 is never the staff #1.

I'm really happy that Menzingers is our staff AOTY.

We have an a staff with varying tastes, and this list did a pretty good job at bringing those together. Can't say I'm a Taylor Swift fan, but obviously others do!

Ten of these made my top 30 and another five were solid honorable mentions for me. Glad I could help boost Springsteen, The Killers, and The Tower and the Fool onto the overall.


Menzingers were #1 on my list too. Love seeing that.

Celebration Rock and Shields. I am content.

Only two of us voted for Joey Badass.

Fortunately my #1 and Keagan's #2 was KL so it cracked the top 10.

I didn't include mixtapes in with my albums of the year even though it was more of just a free release.

Okay I've quoted you all because your all Staff (and have written on the first six pages!)

I know I'm a little late but can I ask why the hell AbsolutePunk haven't done a Top 30 SINGLES Of 2012.

Despite what the mainstream music press now think - there IS an art to writing a good SINGLE in whatever genre it is. It takes skill to cram something great into just 3 minutes, and skill should be rewarded. There are many bands out there who are more singles-based and they should be rewarded and songwriters should be noticed too.

Great singles like "Runaways", "These Colours Don't Run", "Little Talks", "The House That Heaven Built", "Skyfall", "It's Time", "We Are Young", "Boy Division", "Two Fingers" and no doubt you can think of COUNTLESS others deserve to be acknowledged even if their corresponding album may not be "quite up to stratch".

There are now many bands who release singles with no album (like My Chemical Romance). There are also many people like myself who simply don't have the time now to listen to tons of 50 minute albums!!

So yeh please for the 2013 lists do a singles one too??!

If we're talking "pop genius" singles or singles that are brilliant songs in terms of how they break into the culture, then I think Call Me Maybe is number 1, that Gotye song is number 2, fun.'s we are young and some nights can be tied for third, and taylor swift's entire record is number 5.
