  • #11 of 200, Brooklyn's Yellow Ostrich

It's here— the top 200 albums of 2012 (as I saw it).

The top ten made it into an online story and you can read about them here. Albums 11-200 were only featured as a countdown ticker in the paper (on newsstands now).

However— for those of you out of the area or those just dying to get a look at the list, it's posted below. There's also a ginormous Spotify playlist featuring songs from all but four of the albums on the list (not all bands are on Spotify).

So dig in. With any luck you'll make it through the playlist before 2013 arrives.
