Most Listened of 2012

Time for the annual music posts again. Seems to be the only regular bloggy thing I can manage to keep up with.

Previously, I covered which albums from 2011 I am still listening to this year. Now, we’re going to look at what 2012 releases I’ve been listening to the most over the past year. Obviously, this will favor releases that came out earlier in the year, and it’s a bit skewed by ACs listening habits.

The best list will come later. Making best lists is hard.

Without further ado:
