As a subscriber i had no choice of cover so got it with Rush on the front.

in this issue is the mags 50 best albums of 2012.

BCC are in at 24.

Quote:
If this is BCC's parting shot, the band depart with heads held high. Darker and more demanding, repeated spins yield rewards

Plus a quote from a fan via the CR website:

Quote:
Sublime, majestic and indicative of a band still growing

Yes, take a bow Kev Moore!

Shirean, Heart were placed at 37 with Fanatic and also Strange Euphoria made the Top 5 reissues.

TOP 10 according to CR were.

1. Rush - Clockwork Angels
2. Rival Sons - Head Down
3. ZZ Top - La Futura
4. Howlin Rain - The Russian Wilds
5. Jack White - Blunderbuss
6. Joe B - Drivin Towards Daylight
7. Springsteen - Wrecking Ball
8. The Darkness - Hot Cakes
9. Cory Brannan - Mutt
10. Lynrd Skynrd - Last of a Dyin Breed

My personal album of the year, Brad's "United We Stand" came in at 32 with this excellent verdict - "one of this year's under the radar gems...... the grooves were fluid, the vibes were light, and if there's a better singer than velvet voiced Shawn Smith then they're keeping quiet"
