Uncut’s Best Albums Of 2012

    Uncut  released their best albums of 2012 list and went with 75 selections for some reason. Aside from the odd choice of 75 selections, the other thing that jumps out about the list is the lack of hip-hop being represented. Uncut‘s 75 choices are very rock-centric with a little electronic music mixed in, but not a single rapper is found on the list. 

    The top spots on the list are dominated by aging legends as Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen took the #1 and #2 spots followed Jack White makes another top five list appearance landing at #3. Frank Ocean continues to find himself on every best albums list we’ve seen to date and Orange came in at #5. View the rest of the list below. [BK Vegan]
