There’s a really simple reason why my lists are Top 12s rather than Top 10s this year: I didn’t want to limit myself on films. If I did a Top 10, it would be the ten films that scored 9/10 or 10/10 and that’s it. Boring. 12 gives me more room to play.
This is especially true in the music categories. I didn’t do nearly as much music content as I anticipated in 2012. There are songs, albums, artists, and videos I wanted to talk about but just never got to. I hope to do better on that in 2013.
Here are the Best Albums of 2012.
- Esperanza Spalding, Radio Music Society
- Fiona Apple, The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than The Driver Of The Screw And Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do
- Lindsey Stirling, Lindsey Stirling
- Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, The Heist
- Skrillex, Bangarang
- Taylor Swift, Red
