The 2012 Presidential Election is officially over, and Barack Obama has emerged victorious in his second run for Commander In Chief. But as far as we’re concerned, you, our pop-loving readers, have one more important poll to hit — our own one, for the Best Albums Of 2012! Sure, as the year winds down, the editors here at Idolator are feverishly compiling their own list of what they consider to be the best popular music had to offer over the past several months. But we’re also eager to let you have your say.
Today we’re posting a readers’ poll containing several albums released between January and June. In a few weeks we’ll also do one up for the key albums that arrived in the latter half of the year. And when all is said and done, we’ll round up what Idolator readers deem to be their 10 favorite LPs from 2012. So get to voting below!
Note: As this is a two-part poll, it’s also a two-part process. Once you vote, we also want you to leave your thoughts in the comments box below on why you chose that particular album. We’ll be sifting through your feedback and including it in our final writeup containing your top selections for the Best Albums Of 2012.
Ain’t democracy grand?
