Looting from the past - 2012



By Enrico Spinelli

We start the article with a personal note, this time: 2012 opened with the best prospects (the qualification to practice medicine) and then went out miserably in June with the sudden death of his father. In that year I bought and listened to very little music, even if there was something extremely valid, so I apologize if the list will be even smaller than the previous ones.

It must be said that on the metal front Cannibal Corpse undoubtedly stand out with a perfectly brutal album as usual with a terrible cover, while the crazy genius Devin Townsend confirms his excellent form, Vision Divine with the second album since the return of Fabio Lione on the microphone. As welcome as the successful return of the Demon and Magnum remind everyone that a purebred singer Bob Catley is, while the KISS, returns with a fun album. 
If I had had to indicate the album of the year, however, I would have had no doubts, Rush with "Clockwork Angels", not only the best album of 2012, but also very high in an ideal ranking of the band's discography. Too bad it's the last one of their career. The last record also for Joe Cocker who reminds everyone how his voice is still able to scratch. And if Ian Anderson comes up with an uncomfortable name for a great job, Muse continue their career at high levels as well as Bob Dylan who, despite the years, releases a good record worthy of his name. Same goes for the excellent Bruce Springsteen and his most political and lyrically aggressive album. Aerosmith closes the review with the latest studio album to date, not bad but not exactly memorable.
