Favorite albums of 2012

January 6, 2013 9 comments

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.
