2012 has been an absolutely stellar year for rock/punk/hardcore music (amongst other genres). Every month has brought a cascade of outstanding records and my wallet hates me for it.

So here's my top 20 albums of 2012:

1. Architects – Daybreaker

2. Bury Tomorrow – The Union Of Crowns

3. ETID – Ex Lives

4. Young Guns – Bones

5. Rush – Clockwork Angels

6. Periphery – Periphery II

7. The Gaslight Anthem - Handwritten

8. Gallows - Gallows

9. Converge – All We Love We Leave Behind

10. Parkway Drive – Atlas

11. The Ghost Inside – Get What You Give

12. Billy Talent – Dead Silence

13. Sharks – No Gods

14. Cancer Bats – Dead Set On Living

15. While She Sleeps – This Is The Six

16. Axewound – Vultures

17. Make Do And Mend – Everything You Ever Loved

18. The Chariot – One Wing

19. Mumford & Sons – Babel

20. Trash Talk - 119

Now it's your turn!

Really not a fan of contemporary hardcore. I liked the s/t album from OFF! and Dinosaur Jr's "I Bet On Sky".
