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.

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:

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"
