2012’s best overlooked albums

’Tis a blessing and a curse to live in a time of so much music. It makes a critic’s job akin to Lucy’s at the chocolate factory; the upside is that we’re never short on sweets. Try as we might — and with print and time the ostensibly finite resources they are — we simply can’t tell you about every single record that catches our ears each year. Here, then, are 10 albums that didn’t get their due in 2012.

(As a side note, I’d like to throw in that if there was an album that just had Sky Ferriera’s “Everything Is Embarrassing” 10 times in a row, that would probably have made it.)
