Frank Ocean and Kendrick will be most remembered from 2012 mainstream-wise.
i agree. in a critical sense those will be the two albums from this year that will be seen on lists for years to come.

Fun, hands down, has 2012 locked up. "We Are The Young" was the biggest song of the year.
fun didn't have the critical reception though that will lead to it being thought of as a classic like the other records are.

What?! Haha. Yes it did.

I wouldn't say that at all.

edit: well, let me rephrase myself. seemed to get as much negative as positive, but as a whole, it really wasn't close to one of the most acclaimed records of the year.

Metacritic average does not equal critical reaction. Ever.
I would say that the record got as much negative reception from large media outlets as it did positive. Not to mention that on pretty much every site I read other than this one, as well as the more musically inclined people that i usually hang around, the band is pretty hated.

Hang out with less hipsters.
Those people generally like better music, however.
