Girl On Fire – Alicia Keys Favorite Songs:
Below my list, please feel free to comment with YOUR top albums of 2012. Though not in any particular order, I tried to narrow it down to my top 7 but I couldn’t decide to take sum off this list so, here you go…
De Novo Adagio (Intro), When It’s All Over, Fire We Make, One Thing Best Described As:
Absolutely beautiful music, in message & spirit. Uplifting, refreshing and powerful. A complete project, album flows well. Least Liked Feature:

Until The Quiet Comes – Flying Lotus Favorite Songs:
I honestly can’t pick favorites off this project. Just gotta listen to the whole thing…simply amazing! Best Described As:
Ambient, colorful, mystical, stirs the senses Least Favorite Feature:
The music is so beautiful that some songs that are short I almost want them to be longer.
good kid M.A.A.D City – Kendrick Lamar Favorite Songs:
B—- Don’t Kill My Vibe, Backseat Freestyle, Poetic Justice, Sing About Me I’m Dying of Thirst, The Recipe Best Described As:
Amazing production, a truly classic album Least Favorite Feature:
This is such a strong album, he’s hitting cut after cut, though the last 4 songs (bonus tracks) didn’t really have the same impact in my opinion.
Libretto: Of King Legend – The Black Opera Favorite Songs:
Grand Endtrance, Balcony, Torture Chamber, Peace and War Best Described As:
On a whole other level in production, artistry & message. Possessing variety with an epic sound. Thought-provoking. Powerful. Least Liked Feature:
Another complete project that can’t say I have anything I don’t like about this album. Read full review
Life Is Good – Nas Favorite Songs:
No Introduction, Daughters, Bye Baby, Trust Best Described As:
Hard-hitting, clean, dope hip-hop Least Favorite Feature:
The song “World’s An Addiction” without some drums the song kind of came across watered-down.
Black Radio – Robert Glasper Favorite Songs:
Move Love ft. KING, Ah Yeah ft. Musiq & Chrisette Michelle, The Consequences of Jealousy ft. Michelle Ndegeocello, Letter to Hermoine ft. Bilal Best Described As:
Soothing, melodious, an album that speaks to the body, mind & heart Least Favorite Feature:
No complaints, can listen to this over and over again.
Fiberglass Kisses – Freddie Joachim Favorite Songs:
In The Middle Of The Night, Golden Temple, As We Stand Here Together, I Say (ft. L. Santiago) Best Described As:
Smooth, amazing production, hitting but with some melodic grooves too Least Favorite Feature:
Another really solid project that I can’t say I have anything specific I don’t like.
Alone Together – Karriem Riggins Favorite Songs:
Round the Outside, Moogy Foog It, Esperanza, Double Trouble, Summer Madness S.A., No Way Best Described As:
Simply dope, a variety of so many different sounds from slamming drums to smoothed out melodic to electro and more. Least Favorite Feature:
I don’t think I have a least favorite feature. There are 34 tracks on this project so you may not like every one, but I like and appreciate listening to the different sounds he creates, especially for his own project.
Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumours – Big Boi Favorite Songs:
Objectum Sexuality, In The A, Lines ft. A$AP Rocky & Phantogram, Raspberries, Descending Best Described As:
This is hot, bangin, will make you wanna dance or at least move your body. Least Favorite Feature:
Overall album doesn’t flow together and ‘Mama Told Me’ doesn’t fit at all, song I really am not feeling. ——————————————————-
