  • Best 2012 album

    All genres, which is at the top of your list?


  • #2

    Spectrum Road debut album of the same name, with Vernon Reid on guitar, Jack Bruce on bass, and Carlos Santana's wife on drums. 

    It's a Tony Williams Lifetime Tribute band of sorts, they do a lot of Tony Williams Lifetime songs.

      Ooh! That sounds sweet! I will have to check that out.

    A lot of great albums came out last year. I'm still playing catch-up.

    Runners up would include:

    Baroness - Yellow and Green

    Kimbra - Vows

    Two Gallants - The Bloom and The Blight

    Cloud Nothings - Attack On Memory

    The Whigs - Enjoy The Company

    Father John Misty - Fear Fun

     

    But at the top of my list is a rather odd choice for me. Two young sisters from Sweden who can seemingly write better songs than anybody in Nashville. This album has a sweetness and honesty of a group not yet ruined by the American music scene. The production and playing on the album is top notch (produced by the guitarist from Bright Eyes), and I hope to hear more from them in the future.

      good stuff in there, J.  that Baroness album set has kept regular rotation for me.  FWIW, i also liked  "king animal" from soundgarden.  

       

      these were good too:

      Deftones "koi no yokan"
      Nada Surf "the stars are indifferent to astronomy"

      Mark Lanegan "blues funeral"
      Corrosion of Conformity "self-titled"
      Dirty Three "toward the low sun"
      the killers "battle born"
      Mumford & sons "babel"
      Neurosis "honor found in decay"
