Favorite albums of 2012

Here’s my list of favorite albums of 2012. I no longer try to listen to everything that comes out. Too old and too busy. And over the years what I like has narrowed to cull out a lot of things that might otherwise be deserving of mention on such a list. One thing you’ll quickly notice on my list is a significant number of old-timers who are still producing great work. It was a good year for legends who aren’t over-the-hill just yet.

2. Bob Dylan, Tempest

3. Bruce Springsteen, Wrecking Ball

4. Gary Clark Jr., Blak and Blu

5. Waylon Jennings, Goin’ Down Rockin’

6. Patterson Hood, Heat Lightning Rumbles in the Distance

7. Todd Snider, Agnostic Hymns and Stoner Fables

8. Rush, Clockwork Angels

9. Lucero, Women & Work

10. Gaslight Anthem, Handwritten

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic
    but I had to tell someone!

    certainly like your web site but you have to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very
    troublesome to inform the truth however I’ll definitely come again again.

    Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it
    has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, great blog!
