LOS ANGELES - Kanye West’s fifth studio album “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” has been named by Rolling Stone magazine as the year’s best album.
The recording, released Nov 22, has already sold over 500,000 copies, but came out too late for inclusion in the Grammy award nominations which were announced last week.
Second on the list was the album “Brothers” by the Ohio-based blues-rock duo The Black Keys, while Elton John and Leon Russell took the third spot for their collaboration, “The Union”.
Montreal-based collective Arcade Fire’s “The Suburbs” snagged the fourth spot on the list, while Nashville bluesman Jamey Johnson took fifth with “The Guitar Song”.
