The Current's music editor reluctantly chooses the best of 2012
Published: December 26, 2012
1 - Café Tacuba
El Objeto Antes Llamado Disco
After five years, Mexico City's alternative kings returned with an album that ranks among their best.
2 - Gaby Moreno
Guatemala's top songstress and an album so great we even forgive her for singing with Ricardo Arjona.
3 - Natalia Lafourcade
Perhaps the best Agustín Lara tribute ever.
TOP 10 ALBUMS
1 - Mark Knopfler
Unfairly ignored by most top 10 lists, this album solidifies the former Dire Straits leader's status as one of the most lucid songwriters out there, and one of the best guitarists.
2 - England in 1819
3 - Fiona Apple
The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do
4 - Metric
5 - Bat for Lashes
The Haunted Man
6 - Neil Young & CrazyHorse
7 - Bruce Springsteen
8 - Bob Dylan
9 - Cat Power
10 - Alejandro Escovedo

4 - Amadou & Mariam's "Dougou Badia" (feat. Santigold)
