The Best Albums of 2013

Another year has just about come and gone and here we are getting ready to reminisce on the past three hundred and sixty five days. We all make listicals listing our favorite things from the previous year on almost any subject, records, songs, films, television shows, video games even who the hottest hunks of 2013 were. Seriously go ahead and Google that stuff and I am sure you will find a list of that stuff just all over the place. I digress though it has taken time to put together this list as it does year in and year out. A busy work schedule as well as the inability to find time to listen to a majority of music has left the final weeks of the year devoted to determining what the best records of the year are to myself, and keep in mind that this is only an opinion. You don’t like the fact that I left Kanye West or Eminem or Lady Gaga off of my list then that is totally fine, cause it is my opinion, but you came here to read it. The point still remains the same, try cramming a year’s worth of music into a few short weeks or days and then comprise a list and you get either a well thought out list of stuff or just a giant crap fest half assed list that feels like it was forced. You judge.

As passionate as one can be about certain topics it is hard to make a living with that passion, that being said my passion for nerd culture, modern music and video gaming has yet to translate into anything moderately successful, that and my degree in electronic media, but hey at least I can use that journalism minor.
