Oh So Fresh's Top 50 Albums of 2012


It feels like just yesterday the year 2012 started, but here we are halfway through December and a new year is quickly approaching. 2012 was an interesting year for music and we had plenty of solid releases, so many that it really has become difficult and almost a pain to make a Top 50 list. Yet, it was also a nice way to reflect on what came out and what I loved about them so much. With this list, it is MY personal favorites, so no I do not expect everyone to agree or think that my list is the ultimate. In fact, there probably a few other albums that would of made this list instead of others, but because I did not get to listen to a lot all the way through, I could not justify placing them in the list. If I had all the free time in the world, this list might look very different, but I do not so these are the records I loved in 2012. Leave some comments or what your top few records would be.
