Pitchfork Top 50 Albums of 2012

Here we have Pitchfork’s 2012 best album list in convenient list form. Absolutely in agreement for the top 4 albums on this list, as they were undoubtedly the year’s best albums. Kendrick Lamar takes top spot ahead of Frank Ocean, which is rather surprising due to him finishing runner-up on the tracks too (“Pyramids”), which suggested a first place album. The list is otherwise as pretty much expected, and if you view our ‘Pitchfork Top 20 Albums of 2012 Prediction’, you will see 19 of our picks were in the top 24. Congratulations to the artists mentioned here, and enjoy the music of 2012! That top 4 is definitely worth listening to.
