Very few of the bands are similar to each other. The closest similarity would be ATL and YC, but even they're pretty different within pop-punk.
I was mainly getting at the range of styles and bands featured.

Compared to most eoty lists this might as well be the same band 10 times

Maybe I'm missing something...but how are ATL and Circa Survive the same band? What EOTY lists are you looking at?

ATP isn't all about that style of music though, and there's a chance that none of those albums made their top 10.
But within the genres they cover, there is quite a bit of variety on that list. Not including Frank Ocean doesn't make these bands similar to each other.

But praising them for covering a wide variety of genres is crazy

Alter the Press doesn't really focus on music as a whole, they are pretty specific with what they cover, so it does't really surprise me that none of those are included in their end of the year list

Doesnt surprise me either. See above

Let me rephrase that: variety of music. None of the bands are that similar to each other. They fit within many different sub-genres and genres.
I don't think it's that crazy; it comes down to how you define genre, and how annoyed you are about your favorite album not making the cut.

I hold 0 weight on what albums alter the press thinks are the best of 2012. This is quite possibly the least diverse list ive seen so far

Pretty shitty list. All Time Low? How bout replacing Code Orange Kids with Converge. Title Fight was awesome, but maybe not 2. A little disapointed with Circa.

I enjoyed Circa's album, and Title Fight was a big one for me this year, but the others didn't really appeal to me.

The only ones I listened to were Don't Panic and Southern Air which I both thought were pretty average.
