Don Jamieson Picks His 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, Don Jamieson (pictured left), comedian and host of VH1′s That Metal Show, selects his faves.

 

 

 

 

5. Jim Florentine, Awful Jokes From My First Comedy Notebook
“Every comic’s first stab at jokes are awful. Not many put them out on an album! What makes it cringe-worthy makes it brilliant.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Derketa, In Death We Meet
“All female death-metal doom. Nuff said.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Six Feet Under, Undead
“Chris Barnes does death better than anyone. Period. Blood.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Gypsyhawk, Revelry & Resilience
“Kick ass Thin Lizzy-flavored hard rock with a fresh vocal approach.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Gojira, L’Enfant Sauvage
“Look at what all the other lists say. I’m sure this is on all of them!”
