There are lots of Top n Albums/Songs of 2012 lists all over the internet, but is anyone aggregating them to figure out what the overall internet consensus of top albums/songs of the year is? That is, is there a fivethirtyeight for music?

Maybe take a gander at Hypem's 2012 Blog Zeitgeist? At the very least, it's an aggregate of the most blogged about music of the year.
