Ashley’s Top Albums of 2012: 10-1

23 Dec

Here we go.

The big time.

The top 10.

Are you excited?  I am.

I broke this post up in the first place because I didn’t want this post to be 20 pages long.  But, I am more than ready to wrap this thing up now.

Lets get to it, shall we?

Ashley’s Top Albums of 2012: 20-11

23 Dec

We’ve arrived at the big time, the top 20!

These are some of the best albums I’ve heard all year, obviously, but there’s also sometime special about albums 17-11.  I really badly wanted them all to be in the top ten.

A bottleneck like that is an amazing thing.

Ashley’s Top 50 Albums of 2012: 30-21

21 Dec

So, today I have to make an apology.  I screwed up my list.  In order to fix it, I’m going to have the missing album tied at #25, so, really, this is now my top 51 albums of the year.

But who’s counting?

This bunch of albums is an interesting lot.  A few pics you’ll see on most lists and then a lot of left-fielders.

Let the mysteries now be unveiled!

Ashley’s Top 50 Albums of 2012: 40-31

20 Dec

Yesterday was a bad day for me, as far as sleep goes, and I passed out the minute I got home without doing anything.  I apologize for that, but in my absence, Travis wrote a stellar entry on his top 25, and I thank him for it.

Meanwhile, it’s time to get back to my unnecessarily drawn out top 50!

The Top 25 Albums of 2012

18 Dec

An Ocean of Noise isn’t Tiny Mix Tapes, so I’ll limit this opening paragraph by saying that a lot of good things happened in 2012 and that a lot of bad things happened in 2012 and that music was good and music was bad. Now let’s get to the damn list. Continue reading

Ashley’s Top Albums of 2012: 50-41

18 Dec

Going forward there are two things you need to know:

1) This blog is going to get a lot bigger in the future, I’m thinking of actually investing money into making it a full-blown website: Stay tuned.

2) I will not be the only one writing for much longer.  As I’m sure you’ve noticed, Reggo has made her return, and Traviud has promised he is going to submit his top 25 of the year here as well.  So, what that means is, please understand that this list is not a consensus of the board.  This is just my opinion.  Maybe next year we’ll do a “staff” list instead of several different top lists.

“But, Ashley, what happened to your top songs list?”

I’m glad you asked that, no one, and I have a response for you: I’m incorporating the two together.  I’ve never been good at ranking songs and the more I thought about doing it, the more palpitations of the heart I suffered.  So instead, since I’m breaking this up into groups of 10, I didn’t think one Youtube video per album was too much to share.  Continue reading

Now that the semester is over and the concert event of the year has had a bit of time to be digested by us all, let’s get back to 2012 lists!

I’m not going to drag this out too much, I promise.  Tomorrow I’ll post my top 5 favorite new artists and then my favorite songs of the year.  Starting Monday, we’ll begin counting down with the WORST albums of the year, and then the top 50.  In my opinion, of course.  Which is law.  You hear?!

5 Best Album Covers of 2012

10 Dec

Well, it’s that time of year.  The time where I throw a few arbitrary lists out there, taunting you as I hold back on the big boy: Best Albums of the Year.  Of course, I could just do what I did to you two years ago and never actually post that list…MWAHAHAH.
