emusic Best Albums 2012 (Top 100)

Number 1: Cold Specks – I Predict a Graceful Expulsion (Mute)

“A state of destitution is the starting point for I Predict a Graceful Expulsion, Cold Specks’ stark, stunning debut and eMusic’s Best Album of 2012. It’s sung by a lost child, one who has moved from a place of great abundance to a place of great need. It is, by a good distance, the year’s richest and most rewarding record.” – emusic
