Brooklyn Allman of Picture Me Broken Picks Her Five Favorite Albums of the Year
Leading up to the end of the year, Revolver has asked some of our favorite artists to pick their Top Albums of 2012 and tell us why each record rules. Here, Brooklyn Allman (pictured left), vocalist of the hard-rock band Picture Me Broken, selects her faves.
5. Shiny Toy Guns, III
"A well-written album and a strong comeback for Carah-Faye Charnow."
4. Rush, Clockwork Angels
"I'm really stoked to see a classic and legendary band like Rush release something that sounds so modern. I think a lot of 'comeback releases' sound entirely dated as if the band was too stubborn to evolve, but this is not the case with Rush."
3. Lana Del Ray, Paradise EP
"I think Lana Del Rey is breathing new life into pop music. This follow-up EP to her debut, Born To Die, is melodically and lyrically rich and very sexy."
2. Muse, The 2nd Law
"This album sounds like Queen from space. Muse is always three steps ahead sonically."
1. Jack White, Blunderbuss
"This album was my favorite of the year. He makes an incredible solo artist and his songwriting only gets better as time goes on. I also love how he used two bands on this release, one with all women and one with all men."
