It's time to unveil my choices for the best rock albums of the year. What made my list? Well, one of them came from Kid Rock, but here are a few other clues. Two of them came from the same band. Two of them came from groups who haven't put out albums in more than five years. One of them is the first solo album from a guy best known for forming a band with his ex-wife (whom he claimed was his sister). Is that enough to whet your appetite? OK, dive in ... and let me know what your favorite 2012 rock albums were.
