2012 in Review: Top Albums

In looking at the southern gospel releases of 2012, my initial thought was that it was not as strong a year for new recordings as 2011.  Digging deeper, the numbers tell a mixed story.  This year, I reviewed and rated 22 new albums, giving just one of them 5 stars, but ten of them 4.5 …
