    I was thinking about this today on the drive in. I think mine was:

    41sZvqJTYcL._SL500_AA280_.jpg

    For a debut album, it's very good from start to finish and on sale now at Amazon for $4.99.

    I really liked Blunderbuss too, but I've got a heavy Jack White bias.

    What did you like last year?

    I really liked Blunderbuss too.

    I don't know if I can call it the best album of 2012, but the one I listened to the most was

    It just seemed liked good old(er) fashioned Green Day.

    Alt-J 'An Awesome Wave'

    Of Monsters and Men - 'My Head is an Animal'

    Silversun Pickups - 'Neck of the Woods'

    Those are my top 3. I liked Babel by Mumford and Sons but it doesn't crack my top 3.

    Imagine Dragons is really good too.

    It was released in 2011, but I did not get to listen to it until 2012, so...Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here SACD. Glorious 5.1 release.

    I like UNO a good deal too. Dos and Tre were fun good as well.

    I thought there was supposed to be new Rancid last year but I guess not.

    I didn't get the new Silversun - I think I'll go grab it. I think I liked the new XX better than Of Monsters and Men. But I liked both. I'll have to check out Alt-J

    It has to be a special kind of mellow to be dug by me.

    We are seeing Imagine Dragons in Vegas on 2/9 at the Hard Rock. I've heard they put on a really good show.
