I was asked by Slate Magazine to be part of their annual institution in which music critics summarize the year 2012 in pop music. My formidable co-contributors were Jody Rosen of Slate, Ann Powers of NPR, author Will Hermes, and Lindsay Zolandz of Pitchfork.

Read the entire series, please, but if you want to just read my entries they are here:

Jason King: Entry 3: Should we be suspicious of hipsters’ newfound love of R&B?

Jason King: Entry 8: How bottle service has changed pop music–for the worse.

Jason King: Entry 13: The pop performance of the year was Grace Jones hula-hooping at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
