Hey! Well, as far as new releases I don’t think 2013 was as good as 2012. Some of my favorite bands released awesome albums in 2012 (Yellowcard, Anberlin, Snow Patrol, Owl City), and there was a group of bands that broke out in 2012 that I think are absolutely amazing (Imagine Dragons leads the charge!!! followed by Walk The Moon, AWOLNATION, Of Monsters and Men, fun.). Looking back at my 2012 review (http://www.last.fm/user/kalsonberry/journal/2013/01/03/5pncjm_music_year_in_review_-_2012
), I think I would pick the top 7 or 8 albums over anything that came out this year.
That’s not to say that no good music came out this year – two of my favorite bands released new albums, one band I’ve always been a fan of released my favorite album by them so far, and a few other newer bands released solid albums. So, here are my top 10 albums of 2013:
Yeah…it was hard to come up with 10 albums this year. I did enjoy “Entertainment” and “S.O.S. In Bel-Air” though, and Entertainment has a great Asian-themed video!
