Best Albums of 2013

Post by Blonde » Sun Dec 29, 2013 8:29 pm

After being challenged to list my top ten albums of the year on twitter and finally coming up with a list, I was curious to see how it compares to other people's lists. It was a really good year for albums and so hard to narrow it down to just ten, there are several albums that very narrowly missed out, but here we go (in no particular order)

1. The Joy Formidable - Wolf's Law, it came out at the start of the year and I haven't got bored of it yet.
2. Max Raptor - Mother's Ruin, one of my favourite bands at the moment
3. Public Service Broadcasting - Inform - Educate - Entertain
4. Drenge - Drenge
5. Wet Nuns - Wet Nuns, it appears that duos have been my favourite musical thing this year
6. Larry And His Flask - By The Lamplight
7. Dinosaur Pile-Up - Nature Nurture
8. The Bronx - Bronx IV
9. Frightened Rabbit - Pedestrian Verse, despite thinking that the previous FR albums were only ok, I really love this.
10. Jetplane Landing - Don't Try

Your turn now.

Without a doubt, for me Vessel was THE album. I have listened to it every day since its release.
1. Vessel - Twenty-One Pilots
2. Tape Deck Heart - Frank Turner & TSS (I have only recently decided I love this as a total album).
3. Southeastern - Jason Isbell
4. Downside Up - - Old Man Markley
5. Pedestrian Verse - Frightened Rabbit
6. In the Company of Thieves - Gaz Brookfield
7. Signed and Sealed in blood - Dropkick Murphys
8. Melophobia - Cage the Elephant
9. Save Rock and Roll - Fall Out Boy (Yep, it's really a great come-back album)
10. Trouble Will Find Me - The National

EP's by The Smith Street Band and Drag the River.
shows? 62 so far

Today has been a terrific year for music for me, never bought so many new albums in one year and there still be many more I want to buy. After much thought my top 10 would be...

1. Frightened Rabbit - Pedestrian Verse
2. Frank Turner - Tape Deck Heart
3. Suede - Bloodsports
4. Bowie - The Next Day
5. Savages - Silence Yourself
6. Manic Street Preachers - Rewind The Film
7. Deaf Havana - Old Souls
8. Ben Marwood - Back Down
9. Fighting Fiction - The Long and Short Of It
10. Chvrches - The Bones Of What You Believe

Special mentions to EPs by Smith Street Band and Felix Hagan & The Family which if full albums would both be in the top 10.

Looking through my itunes it turnes out I've only brought 8 albums that were released this year. So here's my top 7:

1-Ben Marwood - Back Down
2-Frank Turner - Tape Deck Heart
3-Jamie Lenman - Muscle Memory
4-Black Sabbath - 13
5- Emily Barker - Dear River
6-Beans on Toast- Giving Everything
7-Oxygen Thief - Accidents Do Not Happen, They Are Caused

Biffy Clyro's Opposites is the other album, but this sham of a Biffy album doesn't deserve a place on any this list.
Thanks Blonde for reminding me that I am still yet to get The Bronx album.

This is basically just a list of albums I loved, not by any means an objective ranking. I don't buy a lot of albums, to be honest. Lots of things piqued my interest that I still haven't gotten around to buying. That said, the ones I have gotten have made it a great year for albums. The top three I am deeply in love with.
1. Frank Turner, Tape Deck Heart
2. Arctic Monkeys, AM
3. The National, Trouble Will Find Me
4. Biffy Clyro, Opposites
5. Bastille, Bad Blood
6. James Blunt, Moon Landing
7. Nine Inch Nails, Hesitation Marks
8. Ben Marwood, Back Down
9. Keane, Best Of (I normally can't be bothered with "best of" albums, but this is one of the nicest such collections I've ever seen. Really a nice retrospective of their career and the bonus disc with B-Sides is incredible.)
10. Muse, Live at Rome (Honestly I was actually a bit disappointed with the track choice, left out a lot of my favorites they played that night, and the sound quality could be better, but at the end of the day, I turn to mush at all the memories it evokes.)

I can't help but feel I forgot something.
2011: 8/26, 28, 11/4(x2); 2012: 2/21, 22, 23, 24, 3/9, 11, 12, 18, 9/8, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 28, 29, 30; 2013: 6/5, 6, 7(x2), 8, 7/26, 31, 8/1, 2, 10/4, 5, 11/16, 19, 29(X2). 2014: 6/4. 2015: 3/8, 9(x2), 5/12, 13, 14, 15. 18
