Top album of 2012: El-P, Cancer 4 Cure

File under: Hip hop

Why it rocked: "The overdriven bomb-squad style break-beats and pulsing manic synths and samples found throughout make this the perfect soundtrack to a post-apocalyptic Brooklyn, and a very abrasive 49 minutes. However, if you can make it through, the payoff is well worth it. The music is so layered and densely packed that at over 100 listens I'm still discovering new intricacies and learning new production techniques. El-P should be studied and dissected, or simply turned up loud enough to blow the bass drivers right out of your headphones."

Standout track: "Drones Over BKLYN"
