|The Tops of 2013|
2013 turned out to be a terrific year, with great albums coming from every musical genre. In rthe end, I didn't base the list on what I listened to most, but what I thought were simply the rBEST records that I did listen to.
|25||Maps For Travelers|
Change Your Name
|23||Run The Jewels|
Run The Jewels
|21|| ||Balance and Composure|
The Things We Think We're Missing
|20||Queens Of The Stone Age|
|18||Scale The Summit|
The Blackest Beautiful
Wakin On A Pretty Daze
|11||The Safety Fire|
Mouth Of Swords
If you've heard of them, you know their greatness. If you haven't, and you like
heavy music, make the move and get this record.
Another album that I got to know while relaxing. This guy should be a household name in the near future if he keeps producing
music like this.
|8|| ||Captain, We're Sinking|
The Future Is Cancelled
Captain, We're Sinking has been around for years, but I hadn't heard of them until this album. It immediately caught my
attention because of the vocal performance and overall catchiness.
Absolutely love this band, and this album demonstrates them at their finest.
|6||The Dillinger Escape Plan|
One Of Us Is The Killer
Intense, chaotic, emotional, and beautiful. It's what they do.
Lift Your Existence
Pure musicianship all over the place! Such a great piece of work.
We Are The Same
I had never heard of Tallhart before grabbing this album on a whim shortly after it was released. It may be the
easiest album to listen to as a whole on this years list. The melodies are fantastic!
A pioneer of the metalcore genre, they are back to install greatness into a stale genre.
This is a beast of an album, and one that will be in the mix for years to come.
|2||Alice In Chains|
The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here
The group's second LP post Layne Staley is another success. I don't listen to AIC
with the expectations of what they were. They're still a great rock band, and for
that, they land at #2.
|1||Protest The Hero|
This just happens to be their best work-to-date. A blend of all things awesome in
the world of rock and metal music.
