Chris' Top 50 Albums of 2012

As you can see there are loads of Ambient and Downtempo releases on this list. This has been a fantastic year for the legendary Ultimae Records thanks to new releases by Sync24 and Solar Fields. A surprising amount of awesome singer/songwriters came with new stuff too. And last but not least: Katatonia and Tenacious D. The former is a fantastic Doom metal band from Sweden and the latter needs no further introduction. 2012 was a very good year for music!
