20 Best Albums of 2012: #13

13. Japandroids, Celebration Rock
 
Celebration Rock is as energetic and thrilling as the fireworks that open and close the record. The album rarely stops to take a breath during the course of its eight songs and thirty-five minutes, daring the listener not to sing along with Brian King and David Prowse’s anthemic choruses and wordless chants. Japandroids aren’t merely out to have a good time, though; Celebration Rock taps into deeper and more universal emotions, displaying a maturity that’s impressive given the duo’s youth.
