Favorite albums of 2012

June 1, 2012

Just out of curiosity I tracked how many albums, EPs, or mixtapes that I listened to for the past 6 months. I listened to well over 170, a tad ridiculous that I’m averaging listening to almost 1 new album per day.

With all those considered, here are my favorite 30 albums released between Dec. 2011 – May 2012
