Favourite Albums of 2012

It’s my favourite time of year again, other than Canada Day of course. It’s the time of year when we compile lists of favourites with a  look back on the year and look forward to the future!

2012 has been the biggest year of my 31 years so far and with all the highs/lows I wouldn’t change where I am now for anything. I’m also very much looking forward to 2013 because of a lot that happened in 2012. It’s pretty incredible to the point I still shake my head weekly. I let go of a lot in 2012 but gained so much more, and there was always music.

Here’s my 10 favourite albums of the year.

  1. Deftones – Koi No Yokan
  2. Two Door Cinema Club – Beacon
  3. Punch Brothers – Who’s Feeling Young Now?
  4. Alt-J – An Awesome Wave
  5. Beach House – Bloom
  6. Tame Impala – Lonerism
  7. Passion Pit – Grossamer
  8. Eight And a Half – Eight and a Half
  9. Ellie Goulding – Halcyon
  10. Godspeed You! Black Emperor – Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend!

And of course since there’s sooo much amazing music out there 10 is never enough, so here’s the honourable mentions…

  • Sigur Ros – Valtari
  • Of Monsters & Men – My Head is an Animal
  • Muse – The 2nd Law
  • Silversun Pickups – Neck of the Woods
