As you can see (WNCW's Top 100 Contest Weekday Mix - 2012 Survey), I had to write in the top 2 albums, which were clearly my favorites along with #3. I have a feeling that Langhorne Slim should be higher, but I didn't listen to it very much. It more or less got buried in the mess of my car for a significant chunk of 2012.
One that I missed is Jason Isbell, Live from Alabama (it is in my shopping cart at Amazon). What else did I miss?
