Top 25 Outer Sound Albums Of 2012

Sometimes NPR Music likes to keep the year-end list deal tidy. Top 10. No more, got it? I get it: wheat, chaff, etc. You can read my opening spiel and blurbage for my top 10 “outer sound” records of 2012 there, but get everything else here. At some point, these things just become bullet points of the dumb stuff I listened to, so these are the records that I really hated to cut, feel me?

The list in alphabetical order because ranking is silly. There are also links to stream full albums where available. And by year’s end, I’ll publish my personal top 25 here — you know, the one with “Call Me Maybe” on it (seriously).

The “top ten”…

15 more for a neat 25…
