Denver Post Pop Music Critic Ricardo Baca and Reverb Managing Editor Matt Miller have a civil discussion about the worst music of 2012, even though they don’t really agree on much. The two discuss the polarizing Lana Del Rey, that over played Gotye song, “Glee,” Bob Dylan and fun. They both agree that Mumford & Sons is pretty bad, though.
And here we are at the end of Reverb’s Best of Week. Wednesday we listed our favorite Colorado artists and Thursday we compiled the best songs of 2012. Now, the Reverb editors and writers bring you the best albums of 2012. The year saw some great newcomers in hip-hip and R&B, along with the debut of the Denver group, the Lumineers, who scored a few Grammy nominations and made one list here.
This week the editors and writers of Reverb are looking back on the music of 2012 — a year of “Gangnam Style” and that Gotye song. Today we are listing our favorite songs of the year, and don’t worry, neither “Gangnam Style” or that Gotye song made the cut. Wednesday we ranked our favorite Colorado artists and Friday we unveil the best albums of the year.
