Albums Of 2012 - No. 50 to No. 41

41. Young Guns 'Bones'
Keeping Kerrang! alive and well.

42. Tribes 'Baby'
Generic indie, sure. Darn good generic indie.

43. Django Django 'Django Django'
Mad-hype not justified; they're not that interesting.

44. Jack White 'Blunderbuss'
More proof he's best Meg-less.

45. The Cribs 'In the Belly of the Brazen Bull'
Still got it, but 14 tracks?! LESS = MORE.

46. Rihanna 'Unapologetic'
Stop rushing! At least she's something to say this time.

47. Nada Surf 'The Stars are Indifferent to Astronomy'
Couple sweet moments when they don't sound 45.

48. Benjamin Gibbard 'Former Lives'
Argh, solo Ben. Wish he'd save his heart for DC.

49. Eugene McGuinness 'The Invitation to the Voyage'
Bit confused. Pick a lane, Eugene!

50. Santigold 'The Master of My Make-Believe'
Meh. Still relevant-ish.
