Music For Humans Awards

Posted February 9, 2013 By admin

The Grammy Awards are presented tomorrow, and in light of that I thought I would do my own personal Grammy awards. Honestly, the real Grammy’s have become a joke, it’s a popularity contest more than giving awards to quality music. It’s depressing and frustrating seeing some of my favorite artists go unnoticed, which is why I thought it would be fun to go through some hand picked categories of my own and see what I could come up with. So, here is what I came up with  in my first annual Music For Humans Awards.

Top albums of 2012

Posted January 3, 2013 By admin

Well, another year has come and gone, and it’s time to post my favorite albums of the past year. 2012 seemed to lack a lot of depth in terms of quality albums. There are a few great ones at the top of the list, but once you get past the first 6 or 7, the quality starts to fade fast. That’s not to say they are bad albums, but there just weren’t many that wowed me this year. I will say this though, there were definitely a lot of great songs released this year, so keep a look out for that list coming in the next couple days. Here’s the list of my top albums from 2012.

Honorable mentions:
Sixpence None The Richer- Lost In Translation
Fiona Apple- The Idler Wheel…
Justin Bieber- Believe
R. Kelly- Write Me Back
DMX- Undisputed

 10. Kevin Coster & Modern West- Famous For Killing Each Other
