Top 37 1/2 Albums of 2012 [Exclusive]

2012.  Oh sweet/disgusting 2012.  This year proved to be one of the most confusing yet enlightening years on a personal level.  Filled with anguish turned to love, misery turned to triumph.  But, that’s not what we are here to discuss, so let’s get to the music!  This year was a very musical year for sure!  I personally attended more live performances than any year prior.  I also listened to hundreds of great albums.  This would have been a great year to maybe push towards an even 50 for the list, but for continuity sake, we will stick with the classic.

Although Trainwreck’d Society sort of turned into a modern day MTV for the blogosphere since we began doing so many interviews, mostly in the film world, music is always a priority.  Independent music is still at the heart of everything I do or write.  I  have been doing the music blogging thing for going on 5 years now.  I’ve covered hundreds of albums, as well as hundreds of artists.  So, before you judge, just let me continue to try something new, but know that my heart is always here.  And this is my favorite time of the year!  When I lay out the list for the criticism and enlightenment of whoever may care enough to check it out.  So with all of that nonsense behind, I am pleased to announce, these are Trainwreck’d Society’s Top 37 1/2 Albums of 2012!!
