Top 10 Favorite Records of the Year (not released by us)

Published Sun Dec 16, 2012

At the summation of this year of great music I realized that this year there may be a difference between what I might consider the "best" albums of the year, and my "favorite" albums. The following are my "favorite" albums this year, although if not for maintaining some level of impartiality I would include our own Aaron Mark Brown's Realities of Grandeur in my favorites of the year. Overall, a great year for music as I know there's so much great stuff I could have include and much more I didn't even get to spend adequate time with.
