My Top Rated Albums Of 2013

Anyone remember when I did this last year and got torn a new asshole? I did not do much rating rthis year so based on what I got I'm expecting to have two new assholes tore for me. Every rthing is an album I have user ranked 3.5 higher, and each is accompanied with an explanation, rand my technical ranking. Flame away, and happy holidays everyone!
16Paramore
Paramore


A tale of two halves. Be Alone being the only solid track on side two. 3.275
15Tegan And Sara
Heartthrob


These chicks annoyed the shit out of me until they made their music 10x more poppier.... is that bad? 3.3
14Twenty One Pilots
Vessel


The breakout band of the year for alternative music. Why do bands release all the albums best songs before the album is released, or simply, why do you have to remake them? All the excellent songs here are remakes. (besides Ode To Sleep) 3.47
13Jimmy Eat World
Damage


An album that tells the tale of a relationship gone awry, Jimmy Eat World is best in a somber tone. I mean... besides Bleed American. 3.5
12My Chemical Romance
Conventional Weapons


The end of an era, until Way becomes a broke hippie. Some of these songs are plain excellent like Surrender The Night, Boy Division, Ambulance and The Light Behind Your Eyes. But some are understood why they are outtakes, mainly Make Room!!! 3.6
11A Day To Remember
Common Courtesy


At least the metalcore ain't a gimmick no more, but the pop punk tracks are better then the metalcore tracks IMO 3.75
10Panic! At The Disco
Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die!


A disappointment, but nonetheless still excellent. This Is Gospel is one of my favorite tracks of this year. This could have been so much better though and that is really saying something. 3.75
9Daft Punk
Random Access Memories


Daft Punk's step into classier dance music could not have gone more smoothly for me. This was a surprise that I loved it. Contact is a must hear jam. 3.8
8Yellowcard
Ocean Avenue Acoustic


It was really nice to hear these songs composed somewhat differently than the originals, namely Ocean Avenue and Empty Apartment. 3.83
7The Wonder Years
The Greatest Generation


Further maturity from a band that is still rising the ranks of pop punk, I expect them to only get better with their next release. 3.85
6OneRepublic
Native


I have always had a soft spot for Tedder's voice, he has the ability to make bad songs listenable. (listen to Zedd's Lost At Sea featuring him) on their newest effort, OneRepublic are starting to put the coldplay comparisons to bed. Something I Need is just way too fucking good. 3.9
5How To Destroy Angels
Welcome Oblivion


I've been riding this albums respective cock so hard ever since it has been released. 4.1
4Lorde
Pure Heroine


The most critically acclaimed pop release of the year. Lorde proves that she is a treasure and mature beyond her years at only the age of 17. A further proof of the new pop music niche, explored in a more creative and satirical way. Yes, it is funny how people talk. 4.2
3Angels and Airwaves
Stomping the Phantom Brake Pedal


What the band has always strived to be, this would be 5 worthy if it was not for pointless remixes. 4.25
2Justin Timberlake
The 20/20 Experience


For the past two years I have been saying to close friends and family that when Justin Timberlake returned to the music industry (after a slew of terrible movies) that it would be a big deal. I was right, but I didn't think I would be this right. With 20/20 JT explores different types of music, from the eccentric "Let The Groove Get In", to the mellow "Blue Ocean Floor", and the 2013 mega hit "Mirrors" JT proves he still has it... too bad he would drop it later in the year with the much less successful part 2. 4.6
1Sadistik
Flowers For My Father


Sadistik is probably the most tongue in cheek MC in the game right now. On Flowers for My Father, Sadistik battles with us the loss of a loved patriarch. It's heart wrenching. Petirchor, and Snow White are the best tracks on this superb listen. A must listen. 4.7
