silly jointIt’s that time of year again! It where lists of other people’s opinions matter more than your own, and everyone’s influence decides your listening for about a week. We’ve compiled a list with mainly me (Ryan) working out which album feels best with what spot. Now there are going to be some after thought about this list, and not everyone is going to agree with it, but remember it is personal preference. We’d love to see your thoughts on this list, and what your favorite’s were this year! Without further a do, we give you the top 30 albums of 2012!
