Both members of Johanna’s Visions writing staff voted and about 190-100 albums were nominated in the process of compiling our year-end “Best album of 2012” list. Like Johanna’s Visions web site itself, the list features an eclectic mix of genres, but with an emphasis on roots oriented stuff (country, soul and rock’n roll). It features well known artists and lesser known acts.
The album that would go on to earn the #1 spot appeared on both our lists and on the same position. The rest of the list is a result of mathematics and hard bargaining.
This is Johanna’s Visions 25 Best Albums of 2012.
