What sort of world do we live in where incredible records from the likes of Muse and Tame Impala don't make the top twenty in our end of year countdown? A world with loads of amazing albums to pick from in our end of year countdown, that's what.
All this week we have been counting down our favourite 50 albums of 2012, and have already covered the likes of Ellie Goudling, Jessie Ware, Jack White and Jake Bugg. As well as the big releases previously mentioned, today's countdown includes essential indie albums and what is arguably the best British pop album of 2013.
