2013 Surprises

The surprise albums this year(for me, at least)
1 The Story So Far
What You Don't See

No sophomore slump here; Parker Cannon tells us why he is the the Pop-Punk standard with every belted chorus and strained vocal.
2Justin Timberlake
The 20/20 Experience

While I didn't expect this to be horrid, I also didn't expect it to be this good of course, if Jessica Biel was my inspiration for making a love album, this is probably what it would sound like.
3Senses Fail

With all due reason to flop with all their other Post-Hardcore companions of the 2000's, Senses Fail emphatically says, "We are still here" with this hardcore release. Much more heavy, focused release.
Earth Rocker

While I didn't expect much, this came as quite the shocker for me. I figured Clutch would never equal their ''Rock-Gods" status achieved with Blast Tyrant. Boy, was I wrong, for I have still yet to conclude whether this is equal or better than Blast Tyrant.
This Is How The Wind Shifts

Again, as with Senses Fail, I figured this was the album that would finally kill off Silverstein. Rather, this is the album that very well may define them. While not leaving any path traveled before, this is a very tight constructed and passionate release.
6Bad Religion
True North

Just when I'm about to write-off Bad Religion as one of the Punk bands from the 80's and 90's that just won't die(see: NOFX) they release True North. This furious molding of both old-school and new-school styles of punk is well worth a listen.
7My Chemical Romance
Conventional Weapons

This, for every reason, should have been horrible. And while it is no where near amazing, it is formidable and, ironically, the best thing the newly broken-up band has put together. At least they ended on a good note.
