I tend to do this every year – look back at the albums released that year to make sure I didn’t miss any and to reflect on my favorite albums of the year. I looked at Rolling Stones’ 50 Best Albums of 2013 and SPIN’s 50 Best Albums of 2013 but really just went through the list myself from Wikipedia – List of 2013 Albums. And, here are my top 5* albums of 2013(not necessarily in any particular order):
Mazzy Star – Seasons Of Your Day
Queens of the Stone Age – …Like Clockwork
Arcade Fire –Reflektor
Nine Inch Nails – Hesitation Marks
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – Specter at the Feast
Travis – Where You Stand
Johnny Marr – The Messenger
Paul McCartney – New
Pearl Jam – Lightning Bolt
The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die – Whenever If Ever
*Ok, I decided to list more than 5.
If you know of other good albums from 2013 let me know about and I’ll check them out!
