    I agree with Jasper on Nell’s Slip Away album being the best album of 2012, at least for myself personally. I enjoyed that album so much! Almost all the tracks became all-time favourites of mine. Kim Jongwan’s voice is simply stunning, and together with Nell’s beautiful music, it is just heaven.

    Big Bang’s “Alive” and “Still Alive” are still my favorite albums this year. The group had shown a great improvement and growth from last year with “Tonight,” and after all the controversies and legal issues they had encountered, they came back into the K-Pop music scene much, much stronger. They experimented with different genres to prove their artistic side, with G-Dragon writing and co-producing each track. From the meaningful ballad-pop “Blue” to the flamboyant electro-dance “Fantastic Baby” to the absolute eargasm that is “Bad Boy,” Big Bang had grown to me as real musicians instead of a generic idol group.

    Hands down to the boy band of 2012. :-)

    nell’s slip away, urban zakapa’s 02, and primary’s full length album take the cake for my top albums of the year.

    slip away was an amazing listen. the entire album gave off a sort of cheery yet melancholy feeling that just made me addicted. and as always, kim jongwan’s voice is perfect for conveying the emotions.(their “holding onto gravity” mini was also just as wonderful.)

    urban zakapa has never failed with their amazing vocals and this album just solidifies them as one of my favorite artists. for some reason, their albums always leave me feeling refreshed.

    …and primary. god i love this man’s productions(and his mask). its always so fun listening to his tracks. he does an amazing job at producing the tracks and picking just the right person to feature in them, and this full length album with his past tracks and some equally great new songs is perfect. (i will forever love him for introducing me to zion t.)
