|My 13 Favourite Albums of '13|
This was very difficult for me to assemble: I listened to some music outside my comfort zone rto try and make this list as objectively subjective as possible, but at the end of the day I rchoose bands I was comfortable with. I discovered innumerable new bands this year, so my rmusic taste has grown a bit, but old favourites persist like C&C, Kanye West, ADTR, rand FOB. rPlease forgive some of the horrible albums.
|1||The Dillinger Escape Plan|
One of Us Is the Killer
Takes the best of mathcore and adds a mainstream touch. Better melodies compared to their previous albums to go with their
unique time signatures.
|2||August Burns Red|
Rescue and Restore
Best metalcore album in years. Inspirational and fun. BMTH's Sempiternal was also a solid album, but something about the mixing
makes it unbearable to listen to on speakers.
The Difference between Hell and Home
Damn, love me some melodic hardcore. Funeral for a Friend's new album was also pretty solid but this beat it out.
|4||Coheed and Cambria|
The Afterman: Descension
I always have a weak spot for CoCa. Number City was one of their best songs in ages and the first half of the album is amazing.
House of Gold and Bones - Part 2
The second half of the album rocks hard. '82 and Do Me A Favour are awesome tracks.
My first DT album, so this deserves a spot just because it introduced me to their previous albums.
Damn Kanye West. I don't know why I like him so much...
|11||Queens of the Stone Age|
|12||A Day to Remember|
|13||Fall Out Boy|
Save Rock and Roll
Don't hurt me :'( I'm allowed to like one pop album per year, aren't I?
