I migliori album internazionali del 2012 - la lista di Zago

best albums 2012

Con alle spalle la classifica degli album italiani e la classifica delle canzoni, è arrivato il momento di affrontare quella relativa ai migliori album internazionali dell'anno.

Come accaduto in passato, la classifica si basa sui voti ricevuti all’interno della rubrica “Uscite Discografiche“ durante l'anno, selezionando tutti gli album che hanno ricevuto una valutazione superiore a 7- (compreso). Un 2012 caratterizzato da proposte pop che guardano al futuro (Grimes, Purity Ring), dagli anni '80 (Chromatics), da l'ennesima rivincita del dream-pop su scala sempre maggiore (Beach House), dal ritorno delle chitarre jangle via Captured Tracks (Wild Nothing, DIIV) e da chi dimostra che il rock non è morto (Japandroids, Tame Impala).

Black music decisamente sugli scudi con un Frank Ocean a livelli assoluti, hip hop in grande spolvero sia sul versante classico (Kendrick Lamar) sia sul versante avant (Death Grips) e la continua evoluzione post-r&b ormai al top da un paio d'anni (How To Dress Well). Lato elettronico, molto bene i ritmi primordiali di Andy Stott, la balearica John Talabot e la conferma di Flying Lotus. Senza dimenticare l'art pop in perenne movimento (Alt-J, Efterklang, Dirty Projectors), il cantautorato (Perfume Genius, Fiona Apple) e alcuni dinosauri più in forma che mai (da Cohen agli Swans, passando per Scott Walker). Tutto ciò tralasciando parecchi nomi, che potete trovare qui sotto all'interno della classifica.
