Scott Weber Album Cover

Scott Weber

12/06/12
Here are my top 25 albums of 2012. I ranked albums based on personal enjoyment, not on any other measure. Music taste is subjective. That being said, 2012 was my favorite year for music in a long time. There were quite a few good albums that didn't make the cut. While I initially tried to write a little something for each, the best way to consume music is to listen. While also posting the links to all the records on Spotify, I posted a youtube link to my favorite track from each album. I hope you enjoy and find something new to love.

Be patient and let the videos load!

I like that donglover is on this list. Such Gold's album is one of the better Pop Punk releases of the year (if not the best, as there weren't many).

Laying down the Seattle card HARD I see, with Macklemore/Ryan Lewis, and good ol' MxPx. I would've put Plans in my list, I just didn't listen to it enough to give it a fair judgement.

Had no idea Ticktockman put out an album this year, or that they were even still around, as all those Gatsbys spinoff bands seem to have gone dormant in the last year. I'll have to check that out. I like a lot of the rest of your list too, so I'll definitely be checking some of these bands out.
