Favorite Albums Of 2012 (Alex)

Alex favorites

After looking my top albums list over, I realize it’s much more moody than years past. I think this might be because the majority of the time I listen to music is when I’m inside, and living in Seattle that means it’s probably a little misty or cloudy out. If it’s bright, shiny and beautiful out, I’m most likely frolicking in the sun and not listening to music that would fit for that type of weather. Or maybe I just liked the type of music I like and don’t need to try and justify/analyze exactly why I do… yeah, I’m just going to go down that road and let some of my favorites from each album speak for themselves. I hope you enjoy!
