Mid Year Top 10

So, the four of us who ‘do’ Louder Than War put our collective top 10 favourite “albums of the year so far” together for a definitive “Louder Than War” top 50 albums of the first half of 2012. Actually it’s kind of more John’s list - as you can tell by the fact that neither of my 2 favourite albums of the year made it into the top 50! I shall be pushing doubly hard to get both Perfume Genius & the Hype Williams twosome to get into the end of year lists for sure although I guess their chances are both pretty slim.
Anyway here’s my top 10 (11 actually - boosted by Big Joan just for this list, I knew it wouldn’t make the cut for LTW so didn’t choose it there). Video’s for the top three then a bunch of other great albums I could have also picked.
