DJ FINK…best CD’s of 2012
This isn't my usual long diatribe of which music era is better than the next. This is flat out just my top 10 picks for 2012.
Wow that year went by quick. I am still bumping New Tigalo, New Tigalo as CD of the year in 2011, but alas poor Yorick it is time to announce the new batch of the hotness from this year 2012. Last year was easier because I thought that there were many CD’s that stood out from the pack. This year I knew what the number one CD was as soon as I heard the intro. I know everyone and their mother comes out with an end of year best of something so remember this list is just my thoughts man.
I have included the links to the CD’s prospective websites so that you can listen to and make a purchase.
My choice of the best CD in 2012 is “NAS, LIFE IS GOOD”. Here is the link to the original article that I wrote in the Chicago Now Blog the day I received the CD. http://www.chicagonow.com/real-music/2012/07/nas-gives-us-the-perfect-cd-tastemaker-salutes-nasir-jones-on-life-is-good/
