RE: Your favorite albums 2012
You mean albums newly released in 2012? Not a whole lot. I'm old enough to be grumpy and judgmental about the noise these damn kids today call music. But I've bought a few new things. Standouts:

Julia Nunes, Settle Down (a while back, she covered Flagpole Sitta on YouTube)
Ben Folds Five, The Sound of the Life of the Mind
Ian Anderson, Thick as a Brick 2

A recently released archival recording that stands out is Live at Bogart's by Jellyfish. And I've bought various reissues, and compilations like the Rolling Stones's Grrr!

There's also older stuff that I still listen to (Beatles, Posies, Jethro Tull), or that I just recently discovered (like the back catalogue of the Move, which started out as a beat group and eventually metamorphosed into the Electric Light Orchestra).

RE: Your favorite albums 2012
i really wanted to like the FOTL record, but it just didn't hit me. that happened a lot this year, with that album, the men, cheap girls, forgetters, the jealous sound, mellowhype, a few others. i was so excited for all of them and then it just didn't click.

it was pretty good but compared to the rest of their works, surely not as good.
