British and American music magazines Mojo and Paste have published the list of the best albums released in 2012.

First place in the Paste’s list went to debut R’n’B styled album of Frank Ocean Channel Orange, released in July of this year. Ocean has become extremely popular as well because he is almost the first African American performing hip-hop, who openly admitted his homosexuality.

In Mojo’s list Frank Ocean took the second place, and the first was given to Jack White with his album “Blunderbuss”, to which Paste gave only the 15th place.
