Attention all CVLT Nation musos: we are gearing up for our end-of-the-year lists, and we decided that this year it’s only fair to include our readers in deciding who goes where on the most important list of all. So for our Top 6 Albums of 2012, we would like to ask you to submit your choices, spanning any genre, any country, for the 6 full-length albums that made 2012 a better place for you! We are accepting submissions to top6@cvltnation.com from today until December 4th. We’ll go through all of the lists submitted and choose your top picks to publish on the site by the end of December. Please only submit your list once so that things don’t get too confusing! Thanks for being a part of the CVLT Nation and we are excited to see what you choose!
