To calculate our Top 50 releases of 2012, available now in our January/February 2013 issue, we asked our contributors to submit ranked lists of 10 new releases and five historical/reissue releases consisting primarily of music recorded more than 10 years ago. CDs and box sets released between Nov. 1, 2011 and Nov. 1, 2012 were eligible. Some albums may have slipped through the cracks, however, as official release dates shifted or weren’t available. Certain critics chose not to disclose their ballots here; others made submissions and revisions after the calculations deadline. THE EDITORS
