Top 10 Albums Of 2013

2013's been a big year for music, at least as far as I'm concerned one of the best in recent rrtimes. Some bands have created surprisingly solid to outstanding comeback albums, others rhave proceeded in making their opuses while others have just continued down an as-per-usual rgreat road. A busy, busy year, all in all. Check it out and tell me if I've missed out on rsomething. Enjoy!

Everything just manages to amaze me about this album, from the oddball yet
haunting cover to the confident and warm songs. It's not his best work, it's not
something you wouldn't expect from Moby to create, but it has that special
Highlights:A Case for Shame, Saints, The Last Day

Another worthy addition to Cloudkicker's growing discography. Nothing especially
surprising here, but the songwriting is as fresh and interesting as ever.
Highlights:the song names are too long to write here, just check the whole thing
8Fates Warning
Darkness in a Different Light

Amazing return after a 9 year hiatus. Just excellently written metal.
Highlights: Firefly, Into the Black, And Yet it Moves
7Daft Punk
Random Access Memories

A record that just doesn't let you ignore it. Be it the funky hits such as Lose
Yourself to Dance or the calm and insightful songs such as Within, the album just
has a way to get under your skin and begs for repeated listens despite being past
the 70 minute mark.
Highlights: Lose Yourself to Dance, Give Life Back to Music, Giorgio by Moroder
6Radical Face
The Family Tree: The Branches

A continuation of the Family Tree saga, Radical Face succeed in creating another
emotional album with insightful lyrics where atmosphere and detail is everything.
Highlights: Holy Branches, The Mute
5Dark Tranquillity

A truly relieving release from a band who raised more than a few eyebrows with
their last record. This is a mature, experienced Dark Tranquillity with a newfound
creative drive taking a slightly different direction. Fresh, tight, definitely worth a
Highlights: Endtime Hearts, State of Trust, For Broken Words
The Living Infinite

Against all odds, they made their most powerful, energetic and creative work to
date. Ranks among one of the best works of post-2000 melodic death metal overall.
Highlights: The Living Infinite I, Spectrum of Eternity, Antidotes in Passing
3The National
Trouble Will Find Me

Sad Songs for Tired Lovers. The National have done it again.
Highlights: Don't Swallow the Cap, Pink Rabbits, I Need My Girl
2Steven Wilson
The Raven That Refused to Sing

Another gem of modern progressive rock, paying an obvious homage to the 70s
giants such as King Crimson and Yes. Very stellar, engaging, exciting with a couple
of ignorable low points. The album's atmosphere does feel like in a weird ghost
Highlights: Luminol, The Pin Drop
The Mountain

A truly magnificent musical journey through a plethora of emotions. Quirky,
sentimental, uplifting, a true gem of modern prog music.
Highlights: Because It's There, Pareidolia, Somebody
