You listened. You enjoyed. You voted.
We have a winner.
Thanks to everyone who offered album nominations and took time to vote for their favorites. Now, it’s time to see your top picks. And even I must admit, y’all did a great job.
2012 was filled with some of the best music we’ve heard in years. Artists pushed boundaries and used their craft to tell phenomenal stories.
