Top 100 2

THE TOP 100 ALBUMS OF 2012: 100-75

After the standard office to-ing and fro-ing, argy bargy and general smackdowns (no news editor, Rick Ross – God Forgives, I Don’t is in no way top 20 material, let alone top 100) we’ve arrived at what we feel is a wholly representative conclusion to an incredibly diverse year in music.

The breadth of musical range present in this list is emblematic of a music scene Crack is proud to be pushing with every sinew of our worn out little brains. In a year where you digest that much music there are going to be victims who didn’t make the cut (give Lana Del Rey another listen, go on), however, after that much democratic debate, we can only have the utmost most confidence in a list we’ve poured the whole of our 2012s into. Here’s 100-75.
