DHM – Favorite Albums Of 2012

April 30, 2015

(Original Dead Horse March Article)

Damn, 2012 was a good year for music. At least for music that I have personally enjoyed for the past few years. More than half of the albums in my top 30, and all but four of my top 15 are still records I listen to on a regular basis. You could also take this list and compare it to any of the bigger music festivals in the past few years and check off several of the bands that have become regulars.

I mentioned in my revisiting of music videos from 2012 that the music from that year holds a special place for me since it was my first full year in Seattle. I think why I still love most of the music here is because everything that was happening to me was new and different and sticks out more in my head more than any other year of my life. This list of Albums (along with my favorite tracks) will probably always hold a special place for me.
