Rolling Stone names Springsteen's album best of 2012
Rolling Stone has come out with its top albums of 2012, and the Boss-worshipping mag has picked "Wrecking Ball" as No. 1. I am as big as Bruce fan as anyone his "The Rising" is the best album released in the last 20 years but "Wrecking Ball" is sub-par Bruce. I can't argue with the high rankings, though, for Frank Ocean, Jack White, Kendrick Lamar, and Japandroids.
Here is Rolling Stone's rankings:
