The Press- Albums of the Year

I look to a couple of different sources to find out what’s new in music, and am always excited when they release their year end wrap up and best of the year lists. It doesn’t mean I always agree 100% with them (Bon Iver… really? Can you say overrated?), but to give you some of my source material, here are some of the best of lists I’ve checked out this year.
