Entertainment Weekly's 10 Best Albums of 2012

1. Frank Ocean - Channel Orange

July 17, 2012
Critic Score
33 reviews

Ocean is less concerned with urban realism than with his own ‘80s-noir fantasy of what the city’s like, and his music captures that vibe perfectly, pulsing with electro-soul grooves, vintage jazz-funk, and Angelino-friendly cameos by John Mayer and Andre 3000.

2. Fiona Apple - The Idler Wheel

June 19, 2012
Critic Score
28 reviews

You have to give yourself over to The Idler Wheel in a way you probably haven’t done since you were a kid, before jobs and other adult responsibilities claimed the long hours you spent curled up by your stereo speakers. It isn’t easy listening. But it’s worth it.

4. Miguel - Kaleidoscope Dream

October 2, 2012
Critic Score
13 reviews

5. Lord Huron - Lonesome Dreams

October 9, 2012
Critic Score
8 reviews

8. Kendrick Lamar - good kid, m.A.A.d. city

October 22, 2012
Critic Score
26 reviews

His major-label debut contains even more deep hooks, without diminishing Lamar’s knack for riding humming beats with his surreal interior narratives.

9. Chiddy Bang - Breakfast
