Your top 10 albums of 2012
Well it's that time of the year again! A time for retrospect, a time to look back on 2012 and contemplate the music releases.

So... what were your faves?

My general laziness has resulted in my drastically falling behind in terms of what's new/good to listen to. I'll try and come up with some sort of list...

okay, okay.

1. Chet Faker - Thinking in Textures (has to be number one - ungf, this album, makes me tingley in my bathing suit area)
2. Deftones - Koi No Yokan (haven't actually given this a really good listed, but by default it has to end up in the top 10 & the track Leathers if fucking sexy)

the rest in no particular order
... Frank Ocean - channel ORANGE (though some tracks are still a bit "eh")
... The Amity Affliction - Chasing Ghosts
... Milo (and Baths) - Milo takes Baths (I'm not sure if it will go down in history, but I'll be damned if I haven't played the shit out of it lately)
...

to be continued

I liked about 1/2 the tracks on channel ORANGE - some just felt like fillers. Although, Super Rich Kids, Thinking Bout You and Crack Rock are standouts.

Pacifica by The Presets, Flume by Flume are the top 2 for myself. Space Is Only Noise by Nicolas Jaar still feels new

EP wise, Tyler Touche's Night Dancer. Check him out

As per the above Chet Faker's Thinking in Textures EP got a caning but that's not really an album, is it?

I have no idea if these actually came out this year but my pick are (in no particular order):

Hidden Orchestra - Archipelago
Kiyoko - Sea of Trees
Teebs - Collections 01
Tycho - Dive (I have a feeling this is 2011?)
Holy Other - Held
Flying Lotus
Dam Mantle - Brother Fowl
Guts - Paradise for All
Nocow and Hmot - Lost in Taiga (maybe 2011 too?)

and that's all I can think of while sitting at work.

Personally, I do not hear anything special in Frank Ocean's Channel Orange album. Two listens and that was enough for me. It's not anything new or groundbreaking. Pretty disposable actually. Again, that's just a personal opinion.

Bring on 2013 and new albums from Depeche Mode, The Knife and maybe even Tool.

Orjan Nilsen - In My Opiion: great collection of melody, beats, synths and a whole lot of feeling to put it together
Above & Beyond - Group Therapy: If you listen to this as a pop album, it has a beautiful vibe to it. The vocals of Richard Bedford and Zoë Johnston are my favs
Andy Moor - Zero Point One: Love the melodies and the basslines, great driving music.
Ashley Wallbridge - The Inner Me: For the same as above. I tend to place him and Moor in the same musical territory.
Dash Berlin - #musicislife: Dash berlin has a knack for producing some epic vocal tracks!
Chicane - Thousand Mile Stare: Not something I would normally listen to but I stumbled on it one day and instantly fell in love with it. Good to lose yourself after a big night with headphones cupped over your head.
Ferry Corsten - WKND: Corsten has dome it again imo, another cracker of an album. Big rooms sounds, would love to hear it at a festival. Better than Armin's offering this year.
