HYPETRAK Readers’ Top 10 Albums of 2012

The votes are in, folks! Last week, we wanted to know from you what your top choice is regarding album releases in 2012. So we had a close eye on our social media channels as well as the comment section to find out about the 10 most frequently named LPs that have kept you going for the past 12 months. Obviously, the names on the list are rather not surprising, but it sure is worth to have a closer look at the ranking. Feel free to agree or disagree below, but as always, please keep it civil. Also be on the lookout for the list of top releases according to the HYPETRAK editorial team before this week concludes. What more can we say than "congrats, Kendrick!"

1. Kendrick Lamar - good kid, m.A.A.d city

2. Frank Ocean - channel ORANGE

3. The Weeknd - Trilogy

4. G.O.O.D. Music - Cruel Summer

5. Nas - Life Is Good

6. Game - Jesus Piece

7. Big Boi - Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors

8. The xx - Coexist

    lack of passion in this post and all the comments. stop hating on cruel summer that shit banged harder than any album on this list, i mean there are better quality albums out there but cruel summer is the most appealing to a variety of audiences while maintaining banging tracks for the underground faithful.

    but no HnC is a damn shame. weekends shit shouldn't have been on here either cause it was no new material. if you playin these games put the purple tape and illmatic re-release on this list.
