Albums Of 2012 - No. 30 to No. 21

21. Frank Ocean 'channel ORANGE'
20 minutes less and then it's a great album.

22. Lucy Rose 'Like I Used To'
This does the job while Laura Marling is away.

23. The Gaslight Anthem 'Handwritten'
The Boss's biggest fans do more Boss-type goodness.

24. Sigur Ros 'Valtari'
Typically bewitching and prettier than Andrew Garfield.

25. Lana Del Rey 'Born to Die'
So what if her lips aren't real? Solid attempt.

26. Bloc Party 'Four'
Welcome back, just don't go all Fred Durst on our arse.

27. Kendrick Lamar 'good kid, m.A.A.d city'
Another new Dre; only this one's for realises.

28. Crystal Castles '(III)'
What fuck needs more of a stimulant than this?

29. Howler 'America Give Up'
Strokesian attitude with a slightly more pesky voice.

30. Dog Is Dead 'All Our Favourite Stories'
Good-ol slice of wholesome indie-pop.
