This is entry #91 through #100 in our top albums of 2013 album series. Picking the top 10 albums of the year is a difficult thing for a music fan to do. There are just way to many fantastic records released each year. Picking the top 100 makes it a little easier, but makes ranking them all a real chore. When I picked my top 100 albums, I set some parameters to make the task a little easier. As usual, I did not include jazz, blues, classical, or ambient music. I love these genres, but wanted to focus on more popular and accessible forms of music. And even though I did this, it's inevitable that I'll catch a ton of flak, because I also tend to omit the pop stars of the moment. So if you're expecting to see Miley Cyrus or Lady Gaga, you'll be disappointed. I don't leave some of the biggest-selling acts out because they're not good, but because they really don't need anyone else shining a flashlight on their music. And frankly, some are overplayed to the point that I can't have an objective opinion.
So instead, I pick the albums that had the biggest impact on me this year. You'll find pop, indie, hip-hop, Americana, rock, and heavy metal in this year-end list, and every entry is absolutely superb. Although you may disagree with the selections, or the order, my hope is that you'll find at least one new album to fall in love with that you missed in 2013.
