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.

Wednesday we ranked our favorite Colorado artists and Friday we unveil the best albums of the year.

Seven selections for the unofficial song of the summer for 2012 featuring Nicki Minaj, the Walkmen, Santigold, Usher, Japandroids, Dave Matthews Band and My Darkest Days
