With our new issue - Q318 - out today, we can now reveal our Albums Of 2012.
We asked our crack team of critics to tell us which records have had them grinning like loons this year and came up with a list of 50 of the finest records released in the last 12 month.
However giving things a bit of twist, rather than rank the albums from one to 50, this year we're presenting them alphabetically, so we encourage you to grab a copy of Q318 now for the reasoning behind each selection and then go and have a listen.
Right without further ado, head over to Albums Of 2012 gallery now for the full 50...
