07.08.14 Best Of 2014 So Far04.01.14 My Favourite Albums Of 2013

My Favourite Albums Of 2013

I've decided to have another look back on 2013, and try and order my rfavourite albums of last year. I know it's already been done a considerable amount of rtimes late last year, but oh well, here's the list. Bear in mind, I listened to about 70 albums rreleased this year, and enjoyed a lot of them, so it was annoying narrowing them down.
20Atoms For Peace
Amok


I'm a Radiohead fanboy, and how can't you enjoy something with Thom Yorke and Flea in it. I liked it way more than Radiohead's King Of Limbs.
19SubRosa
More Constant Than The Gods


Another great Sludge album with other elements in it. I'm yet to listen to SubRosa's other works, but More Constant Than he Gods is an enjoyable album.
18A Day To Remember
Common Courtesy


I never really listened to A Day To Remember, but this album is really really good. I love the mix of Metalcore and Pop Punk, and I just think the songs themselves are catchy and keep me interested.
17 Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats
Mind Control


Another band in which a live experience got me into them. Fantastic band, and Mind Control is a strong album.
16Anciients
Heart Of Oak


Reminds me a lot of Mastodon and Baroness at times, but Anciients to me, have more substance. It's got a massive progressive influence, whilst still maintaining that Stoner/Sludge sound. Marvelous debut album.
15Gorguts
Colored Sands


At first I really didn't get why everyone loved this, but I revisited it a few months later, and really loved it. First Rate album, and a great record to come back with.
14Nails
Abandon All Life


This album to me is just pure hate. I'm not big into Grindcore or Powerviolence and such, but a friend of mine showed me Nails, and I just found this to be one fucking good album.
13Suffocation
Pinnacle Of Bedlam


Many people have said they were dissapointed by this, but I find this to be just as good as their recent works. I don't think I dislike any Suffocation albums.
12Sigur Ros
Kveikur


Another solid album from Sigur Ros. I saw them live not long after they released this, and I think that cemented my love for them, and for Kveikur.
11Shade Empire
Omega Arcane


Another album that is the most accomplished of a bands career. Omega Arcane has those wonderful symphonic parts in it, that make albums like Wintersun's Time I fantastic. Superb album.
10Thrawsunblat
Wanderer On The Continent Of Saplings


Solid debut album from a former Woods Of Ypres member. Nice folk elements, and a very overlooked record.
9Bring Me The Horizon
Sempiternal


At first, I listened to this with bias and prejudice. I was one of those people that automatically hated some bands, for no real reason, before I really listened to this. I think it's a very decent album, and by far their best.
8Cult Of Luna
Vertikal


Another Isis influenced, Sludgy Post-Metal album, and it's amazing to listen to. From the almost haunting and creepy intro, right to the finish, this album is excellent.
7Run The Jewels
Run The Jewels


My favourite rap album of 2013. The combination of Killer Mike and El-P makes this album. The production is amazing.
6The Ocean
Pelagial


I can't really fault this album. Post-Metal at its finest.
5Steven Wilson
The Raven That Refused To Sing


Just absolutely mesmerising Prog.
4Persefone
Spiritual Migration


Absolutely wonderful album. Beats all of their other albums. Even Core.
3Queens Of The Stone Age
...Like Clockwork


This album just grew on me over time, and every listen, it appealed to me more and more.
2My Bloody Valentine
m b v


I can't think of many comeback albums that can stack up to their predecessors, but I think m b v completely holds its own in comparison to the classic Loveless.
1Ihsahn
Das Seelenbrechen


I don't know what it is about Ishahn, but I just love his solo albums. Das Seelenbrechen is Ihsahn at his best. It's a fantastic album
