Top 10 Albums of 2012

Favourite albums I've listened to in 2012 (with selections from 2011 & 2012)

Bon Iver, Bon Iver

My most listened to album of 2012. Amazing song writer and penomenal artist, can't wait for new music but we'll have a long wait!

Coldplay, Mylo Xyloto

Hated the first single, but ever since I've seen them perform it live, it's such a good album.

Lana Del Rey, Born to Die

Depressing but good!

Opeth, Heritage

Another new band for me this year, great album with some amazing musicianship.

Stone Sour, House of Gold and Bones Part 1

Just started listening to Stone Sour this year, one of my bands of the year. Heavy rock goodness!

Bruce Springsteen, Wrecking Ball

This album has turned me into a Springsteen fanatic and I finally got to see him live for the first time this year, amazing artist.

Mumford & Sons, Babel

Listened to these guys earlier in December for the first time on advice of friends and family. Very glad I gave them a listen, some great passionate performances.

Slash & Myles Kennedy, Apocalyptic Love

Absoulte legend, enough said.

2:54, 2:54

Saw this album in HMV and decided to give it a go, judged a book by its cover and it paid off! Saw them support The xx earlier this year and the lack of harmonies disappointed but the album is well worth a good listen!

Soundgarden, King Animal

Great come back album from the Seattle grunge kings, Soundgarden. Well worth a listen.
