Top 10 Rock Albums Of 2013

So, what are the 10 Best Rock Albums of 2013? Here's a list that includes a handful of acts rrrwho took a long time between albums, but returned in a big way this year. Patience paid off rrrfor fans of such veteran bands as Queens of the Stone Age and Alice in Chains, as both of rrrthose acts released stellar discs in 2013. Meanwhile, radio rock kings like Five Finger Death rrrrPunch and Stone Sour didn't waste any time between discs. Either way, here are some rpicks rrrfor the 10 Best Rock Albums of 2013:
1Queens Of The Stone Age
...Like Clockwork

"Six years can seem like an absolute lifetime, especially when you?re waiting for new
Queens of the Stone Age material, but luckily Like Clockwork satisfies in every way
imaginable and exceeds all preconceived expectations."
2Arcane Roots
Blood & Chemistry

"With post-hardcore energy, alt-rock accessibility, progressive song structures and
math-rock riffs, Arcane Roots are hard to define, but their impressive musicianship
and refreshingly high passion are already showing up many of their peers."
3Nothing More
Nothing More

"If they're not borrowing from My Chemical Romance, they're emulating Tool and if they're not being Tool, they're building upon
the creative playing style of Fair To Midland. Every once in a while you get lucky and stumble upon a band that you've never
heard of, and have no preconceived notion of what to expect, that really impresses the hell out of you."
4Bring Me The Horizon

"Vocalist Oli Sykes has in the past said that Pantera is the only band universally
liked by every member of Bring Me the Horizon, so working with producer Terry Date
must have been nothing less than a fantasy come true."
5Dead Letter Circus
The Catalyst Fire

"There is a certain burden any group that shakes off standard typecasts faces,
yet, with the Australian music scene abuzz with newly recognized talent, and the
current popularity of all things delay-driven, it?s an interesting time to be a band
like Brisbane's Dead Letter Circus."
6A Day To Remember
Common Courtesy

"You can easily both condemn the record for being formulaic, or praise it for staying
true to the band?s clearly defined sound. It?s really all a matter of how you look at
7Alice In Chains
The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here

"These grunge Godfathers confirm that they can still produce powerhouse material
that?s authentically Alice in Chains and any doubts to the prospect of their future
are completely erroneous."
The Audio Guide to Happiness (Part 2)

"If binaural tones will not make you happier, you will most probably be by listening
to the "Audio Guide": the second part of the two-disc concept feels more inspired,
more experimental and definitely an improvement."
9Vampire Weekend
Modern Vampires Of The City

"It's time to start thinking of Vampire Weekend not as upstarts but as one of the world's best bands, because they've delivered a trio of great albums in an era when diminished expectations leave most listeners grateful for one."
10Crash Kings
Dark Of The Daylight

"Beliveau's Robert Plant-like vocals are enveloped by a ferocious rhythm section,
and you wouldn't believe that these songs didn't have guitar in them."
