    Best Albums of 2013

    There was a lot of good music this year. Here's my list:

    1. Arcade Fire - Reflektor
    2. Daft Punk - Random Access Memories
    3. NIN - Hesitation Marks
    4. Bowie - The Next Day
    5. Chvrches - The Bones of What You Believe

    I also found several older albums recently that I really enjoyed. So my new to me list:

    1. Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots
    2. The last three Muse albums
    3. Imagine Dragons - Night Visions

    I mean this in the least dickish way possible. There's some good discussion in this old thread.

    It seems you and I have similar music interests. Arctic Monkeys new album "AM" is amazing and is currently constantly spinning on vinyl at my place....May want to check it out if you haven't. To me it sounds like a tighter/cleaner version of The Black Keys "El Camino"

    Re: Best Albums of 2013

    My personal ones (I don't give a **** about release dates)

    Channel Orange - Frank Ocean (2012)
    Camp - Childish Gambino (2011)
    Blue Slide Park - Mac Miller (2011)
    Long Live A$AP - A$AP Rocky (2013)
    Yeezus - Kanye West (2013)
    The Gifted - Wale (2013)
    Based on a T.R.U. Story - 2 Chainz (2012)
    B.O.A.T.S II: Me Time - 2 Chainz (2013)
    The Heist - Macklemore (2012)
    I Am Not a Human Being II - Lil Wayne (2013)

    Excited about Because The Internet from Childish Gambino coming out next week.

    My non rap favorites are probably the new Vampire Weekend one, True - Avicci, and ARTPOP - Lady Gaga. Along with some stuff from others.

    Re: Best Albums of 2013

    Volbeat-Outlaw Gentlemen and Shady Ladies(by far my favorite of the year)
    A7X-Hail to the King(not as good as Nightmare, imo)
    Korn-Paradigm Shift
    Eminem-MMLP2(minus a couple songs)

    The mention of 2 Chains in any sort of best albums discussion should be grounds for banishment.

    Anyone who uses the lyrics "she got a big booty so I call her big booty" or "chain hang to my dang-a-lang," is not an artist.

    Music is entertainment. If you don't think 2 chainz's lyrics are entertaining (read:funny) then that's just your opinion man...

    Re: Best Albums of 2013

    I'd need to go through my music to make a full list, but I can say that The National's Trouble Will Find Me is at #1 for me. By quite a bit. Iron & Wine's Ghost on Ghost is probably #2.

    My 2nd graders are pretty much the only people I know that enjoy 2 Chainz.
