I listened to U22 a couple of times when it first came out. It's fine, but I haven't felt any need or desire to return to it.

I really liked U22, but I wouldn't consider a live album in my 2012 list.

I like it fine, but as you (the royal you) might (not) have noticed, it was not on my list. I was pleased with the chosen tracks for the most part, pleasant surprise there.

Same here.

And that one song for me is "Simple Song." Easily one of my 2012 favorites. Song kicks ass. I might go back and give the album another try or two before the year's over.

I'd add Rifle's Spiral to that category as well, but yeah. Point still stands.

I've heard Port of Morrow a few times and I like it a lot, but not anywhere near as much as their other work, and not enough to make my top 20.

Albums I really dug this year:

Beach House - Bloom
Shearwater - Animal Joy
Bruce Springsteen - Wrecking Ball
Bob Dylan - Tempest
Chromatics - Kill For Love
Alcest - Les Voyages de l'Ame
Caspian - Waking Season
Metric - Synthetica
Stars - The North
Tame Impala - Lonerism
JD McPherson - Signs & Signifiers
Lotus Plaza - Spooky Action at a Distance
Japandroids - Celebration Rock
Bloc Party - Four
Passion Pit - Gossamer
Jack White - Blunderbuss

No particular order there. I'll save that for the next thread.

Grimes at #2?

Half that album is great, but the rest is average. It wouldn't even make my Top 15.
