Heard Menomena's album. Really liked it. Eclectic hipster shit, kind of undefinable, the saxophone was fit in well and the singer reminded me of Damon Albarn. Last track was my favorite.

It'll probably be in my top 30. I listened to like 35 albums this year, so that seems pretty fair.

I'd rank Sun somewhere in the middle of what I've heard this year.

It's just not what I look for in a Cat Power album at all, call me closed-minded.

It's my first Cat Power album. I mean, it wasn't bad, it just had nothing that really stuck with me.

I will compose my favorite albums of 2012 later but here are my favorite non-2012 musical discoveries of this year. In no particular order.

1. Sennen - Where the Light Gets In (Shoegaze)
2. The Stars of Heaven (Jangle pop)
3. The Wedding Present - Take Fountain
4. Luna - Days of Our Nights
5. The Verve - The Northern Soul (Knew The Verve and Urban Hymns a long time but dug into older records)
6. The Stills - Logic Will Break Your Heart

It is, they are awesome! The album is a little on the long side but good, nevertheless.

This is exactly my experience.

Just on Popmatters list, I really, really like the paragraph on Celebration Rock (which will probably make my top 10 as well).

Quote:
Japandroids grow up on Celebration Rock. While they have haven’t tempered their rambunctious, hot-and-bothered sound too much—if at all—Japandroids’ point-of-view virtually matures over the course of its urgent sophomore effort. On Celebration Rock, the duo of singer/guitarist Brian King and drummer David Prowse proves that you can imbibe heedlessly like there’s no tomorrow at the same time you’re playing the house-party existentialist. So while loud, primal, excessive songs like “The Nights of Wine and Roses” and “Fire’s Highway” give you the idea that Celebration Rock isn’t just about hedonism, but an exercise in hedonism, there’s something deeper to Japandroids’ vivid vignettes than just empties and hangovers. The album captures how present tense turns into the past before Japandroids’ very eyes, their carpe diem indulgences becoming memories in real-time as the yearning strains of King’s vocals tell their tall tales. Nowhere is the sense that Japandroids are running against time—and out of time—so poignant and bittersweet as on “Younger Us”, as King frantically howls, “Gimme that you and me in a grave trust / Gimme younger us,” as if he’s desperately hanging on to something that’s slipping from his grasp. Celebration Rock is a testament to living for the moment because Japandroids know those days are numbered.
On the other hand, while it's great to see Channel Orange at #1, the paragraph is awful. I truly hope that with time the album can be appreciated for what it is, and not always having to be talked about in the context of his coming out. Yes that was great, brave, all the rest of it, but the album is really fucking good. It's like In Rainbows all over again - four out of five paragraphs on the context (PAY WHAT YOU WANT OMFG for Radiohead, bisexuality for Frank) and then a couple of "oh yeah, there's music too" sentences.
