Music of 2013

Recommended Posts

As an Atheist....I disapprove of most music in this last year.

The Gossip and The Heavy though are good, if you're an atheist I guess that is

finally got my hands on the newest Ty Segall (Sleeper). Really not enjoying it as much as his other stuff, which is unfortunate, because I've read some good reviews and knew Segall was going through a "rough patch" or whatever. I had high hopes. Good musician + emotional instability = music gold, usually.

Arcade Fire's gonna sweep the Grammy's.

But Get Lucky may win soty.

The Grammys are the most insulting thing in music.

To me, 2013 was a bit of a let down after 2012. Very few releases that I can say that I loved. I'm crossing my fingers for a strong bounce back in 2014

Yeah, it will pick up quickly for me with the new Broken Bells album, After The Disco, coming out next month.

really? i thought the first half of 2013 was stronger than the entire of 2012

what did you like from 2012 so much?

(granted, i still think Lonerism is better than anything in this or any other recent year)

MY top 5 albums of 2013

1. Nothing Was The Same- Drake

2. Because The Internet- Childish Gambino

3. Magna Carta Holy Grail- Jay Z

4. Marshall Mathers LP2- Eminem

5. Yeezus- Kanye West

#3 and #4 can be swapped with one another depending on what I'm into at the time.

Side note: I didn't include GKMC because I consider that an album from 2012. For some reason a lot of people consider it a 2013 album, but it defently was #1 in 2012.

Tame Impala, Killer Mike, Grimes, Mac Demarco all put out albums I still love and listen to regularly. I know there were more but I had my laptop stolen in the summer so I lost all of my music.

Nothing I've heard this year has really compared to some of the albums from 2012 imo.

Went reading back a ways and no mention of Alter Bridge's Fortress album? Killing me here. Album blew my mind.
