New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
It's almost 2013, so we'll be drowning in end-of-the-year lists! What is the greatest music album of 2012? If you ask a hundred different people to name the best album of 2012, the chances are that you will not get a unanimous answer!
When differential genre albums are placed that close together in a Top40 list, the specific rankings don't say much about the difference in quality.
In our list which is compiled by Top 40 Charts for 2012 we tend to look at it more listening albums, but we realize that kind of defeats the purpose of this list.
Quite frankly, at the end of the day, even though it's what we enjoy spending all our time doing on this magazine, music wasn't meant to be ranked.

A wise man once told us that "if something moves you, it has value."
You can't quantify that kind of personal value!
