My year in music 2012

Fiona Apple:  musical artist of the year
My favorite albums of 2012:

#1.  Fiona Apple, The Idler Wheel . . .
#2.  Jack White, Blunderbuss

Others I've enjoyed:

Band of Horses, Mirage Rock
Sara Bareilles, Once Upon Another Time EP
Dave Matthews Band, Away from the World
Brandi Carlile, Bear Creek  (This is her most flawed album to date, however.)
Shake The Baron, Ghost Hits
Tori Amos, Gold Dust
Whispertown, Parallel EP

Then there are a bunch I need to hurry up and listen to in their entirety, such as releases from Bat For Lashes, David Byrne & St. Vincent, Bob Dylan, Benjamin Gibbard, Beth Orton, Amy Ray, and The Wallflowers.
