Twin Cities Critics’ Tally: Best local albums of 2012

We probably could have called the Twin Cities Critics’ Tally for P.O.S. when his record came out back in October. But the 11th annual poll — compiled from 22 local music pundits’ top 10 lists — also speaks to the ever-deepening pool of young talent in the Minnesota music scene. Half of the albums and many of the favorite live acts are relative newcomers.

How TCCT works:

We asked voters to choose their top 10 local albums, then weighted those picks through a point system. Voters could rank their choices (from 20 points for No. 1 to two points for No. 10), or leave them unranked for 10 points apiece. Best songs and live-act categories are from top 5 lists, with 10 to two points for ranked lists, or five apiece for unranked.
