MMXII: Ranking The "Final" Year's Albums

While I'm slightly disappointed the world didn't end this year, I thought I'd share my musical tastes from throughout the year by arbitrarily ranking other people's art. When the year began I was really into sludge and stoner but as the year has worn on, it's been the black metal releases which by and large have won my attention and appreciation.

1. Royal Thunder - CVI
2. Ancestors - In Dreams and Time
3. Hail Spirit Noir - Pneuma
4. Hidden Orchestra - Archipelago
5. Reverence - The Asthenic Ascension

2012 Musical Perusals

My list of favourites and interests for this year ordered roughly in descending order. My new years resolution is to branch out a bit and listen to new and unfamiliar genres, metal and non-metal.

Edit: Anything above about a 7/10 I'll keep here. Now with approximate rating in a .5 scale and ordered according to **replay value** i.e how often I listen to them. AND now with some comments, adding them gradually.

1. Enslaved - RIITIIR
2. Pharaoh - Bury The Light
3. Anglagard - Viljans Öga
4. Overkill - The Electric Age
5. The Foreshadowing - Second World
