Best albums of 2012

872 posts in this topic

I cannot seem to find a comprehensive list of music releases for 2012 this year. Sure, there's a smattering ...

10 Most Anticipated Albums Of 2012

My Most Anticipated Albums of 2012

And I'll include this one for the comedy.

but nothing like the monster lists that have come out in past years.

I see Mumford & Sons, The Knife, Muse, and Silversun Pickups. But what the hell is going on? Did mp3 folders kill the biz?

(And no, I'm not really feeling the love for Linkin Park, Green Day and No Doubt :P)

Expert, not beginner.

And just in case you missed me posting this for you a couple days ago...one more time:

Right behind that for me in terms of anticipation is the Spiritualized record.

Springsteen! New U2 as well?

Don't expect an album ready by 2012, but excited that DMB is going back in studio with Lillywhite early 2012.

Arcade Fire's fan base is old and white? I think Eminem and Dr. Dre's fan base is easily older and whiter than Arcade Fire's.

I saw GbV sitting next to the Beatles on the iTunes homepage last night. That ruled the universe.Early impressions...Laundry and Lasers, while all it's own, actually sounds like a marriage of Man Called Aerodynamics and Hardcore UFOs. Freaking awesome opener. The Head is where I had my ah-ha moment, that yes, they are really doing this. Doughnut for Snowman is pop perfection. Spiderfighter...Toby's ending is a weeper. Hang Mr. Kite is obviously Lennon-esque. What more needs to be said about "we are living proof that God loves us." Unsinkable Fats Domino...probably the closest thing to a single. I imagine this is what will be played on Letterman, although I'd push for We Won't Apologize For the Human Race. Who Invented the Sun...Toby is killing it on this record. The Big Hat and Toy Show...could be a Circus Devils track and my only complaint on the record is Bob's vocal on this comes off a just a touch limp. He's definitely in the right neighborhood, but maybe one more swing at it would have helped. But that defeats their purprose so F ME and my judgment. Imperial Racehorsing...how freaking great is that intro? Horns? Seriously? "We're building secrets oh no she's coming at me like she did oh no..." ROCK. IR is the morning line favorite for song of the record. How I Met My Mother...nice bridge song building to the majesty of WAVES. Did I mention that Toby is killing it on this record? This would fit perfectly on Vampire on Titus. No idea what he's singing but I like. Taking a time out. This is much better than I was expecting.

Most of what I have seen (see above), would be considered "hipster" music...just an observation though

Dr. Dre's fanbase was young when he started recording "Detox" but will be in nursing homes by the time it gets released.

This record is absolutely ####### amazing. For anybody new to GbV, I'm not sure that it's a good place to start, but for those of us who are well-versed, it is a major blast of fresh air. And the kicker? Word has it the next one, which is already done, is even better. The year hasn't even started and nobody else stands a chance in my best of 2012.

:hey: recommendation?
Without knowing you and your taste, my suggestion for first proper release for newbies would be Alien Lanes. You need to have some patience with them. They make grower music and it's a bit disorienting at first as you're figuring out where they're coming from. But trust me, by the fourth or fifth listen they will have their teeth into you in a big, big way. Pay close attention to the words. Robert Pollard might be the best lyricist since Dylan's prime. And it's music made to drink beer to, fwiw.

Younger people (30 and younger) are definitely fans of Dre and lots of other hip hop/R&B music.

Looking forward to Mazzy Star and Garbage.

Mazzy Star is all the same, but as usual, I will buy the new album on the chance I run into Hope Sandoval and she asks me to play track #3 while we make slow, dreamy love. So hot.
