Best Albums of 2012

Every year I am surprised by how predictable the Best Albums of 2012 lists have become. Just because things sell a lot of units does not necessarily make them best. At Blind Carrot Magazine we have once again compiled our list of the albums that grabbed us by the throat and shook us until we had to agree that they, in their own unique and individual ways, made the biggest contributions to our musical year.

 BRIGHT BLACK HEAVEN by Blaqk Audio
 SOME NIGHTS by fun.
 BLUNDERBUSS by Jack White
 HANDWRITTEN by The Gaslight Anthem
 NIGHT VISIONS by Imagine Dragons
 ON THE IMPOSSIBLE PAST by The Menzingers
 BATTLE BORN by The Killers
 THE LUMINEERS by The Lumineers
 DRINK. SING. LIVE. LOVE. by Versus The World
 WALK THE MOON by Walk The Moon


The honorable mentions that nearly made the list:
PICTURE SHOW by Neon Trees
MY HEAD IS AN ANIMAL by Of Monsters and Men
THE LATENESS OF THE HOUR by Alex Clare
