    @Bleak did this last year and it was fun*. I'm interested to see what his list is like this year.

    Oh, and everyone else . . . post your top 10/5/whatever. I promise not to cry (on the outside) if it's all RPG soundtracks and waifu stuff . . .

    I don't think 2013 was all that great myself, so please prove me wrong.

    1. My Bloody Valentine - mbv
    2. Merchandise - Totale Nite
    3. Empty Pools - Saturn Reruns
    4. Parquet Courts - Light Up Gold
    5. Speedy Ortiz - Major Arcana
    6. Sigur Ros - Kveikur
    7. Youth Lagoon - Wondrous Bughouse
    8. Unknown Mortal Orchestra - II
    9. Atoms for Peace - Amok
    10. Boards of Canada - Tomorrow's Harvest

    Honourable mentions for Drenge and The Flaming Lips.

    I found the Arcade Fire album a bit boring if I'm honest.

    *For about 3 of us.

    Good thread! I've been putting a little bit of thought into it, but haven't been able to compile a list yet.

    I do know that there's a lot of stuff this year that's been hitting a lot of these lists that I just haven't been able to check out yet. Will get back to you!

    I am 32, and I only know 2 of those bands. I feel old now.

    The people in at least 5 of the bands I mentioned are older than you ;)

    I guess I don't feel as bad, I just don't know much of the new music I guess. I only knew Flaming Lips and MBV.

    Will this one make you cry inside?
    1. Acid Rap - Chance The Rapper
    2. Because the Internet - Childish Gambino (it's dropping in a week but I know it's going to be good)
    3. whatever onerepublic's album was
    4. Pure Heroine - Lorde
    5. I really have nothing else unless R O Y A L T Y by Childish Gambino came out this year

    I also liked songs off of Magna Carta/Holy Grail by Jay Z (i normally hate him though) and Crew Cuts by Hoodie Allen.

    I'm still trying to get a list put together, but the only one that I know for absolute certain is my number one choice: Steven Wilson's "The Raven That Refused To Sing (And Other Stories)"

    It's as close to a dream band as I can think of, and it's a very moving album where every song tells an individual story. It's all rather morose/gloomy, but it's a really solid record with a killer amount of musicianship. It's one of my all-time favorites, actually.
  8. HighShroomish

    HighShroomish Wreck-It Ralts

    1. Life on a Rock- Kenny Chesney
    2. Two Lanes of Freedom- Tim McGraw
    3. Golden- Lady A

    I don't really have another "favorites" from 2013.

    So here's a bit of an interim list. I may move a few things around, but everything's here.
    1. Steven Wilson - The Raven That Refused To Sing (And Other Stories)
    2. Port Noir - Puls
    3. Disperse - Living Mirrors
    4. Atma Weapon - Dark Tower
    5. ASG - Blood Drive
    6. Alice In Chains - The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here
    7. Carcass - Surgical Steel
    8. Amon Amarth - Deceiver of the Gods
    9. Dream Theater - Dream Theater
    10. The Dear Hunter - Migrant
  13. I haven't been overly impressed with much of anything this year, but two albums blew everything else out of the water for me. Perhaps it was seeing them performed live, I don't know.

    1. Red- Release the Panic
    2. Skillet- Rise

    Everything else has been kinda meh. I liked a few of Bruno Mars' new songs, and particularly liked "Atlas" by Coldplay, but no full albums other than those two really stood out. Rise in particular, it was a unique album- if you listen to it in order it tells a story, which is something new.

    Listened to some of this last night (based on your recommendation). It is kind of amazing and prog rock concept albums aren't usually my thing.
