The Top Ten

The Marshall Mathers LP 2 - Eminem
Marshall's grown as an artist and a person. If Em gave rap up now, he'd leave on a high note. Em could give rap up, but he chooses to continue because it's what he loves. You don't owe the world anything anymore Marshall Mathers
Eminem is back in this album. No more albums like Encore
Best Album of All Time

2Hail to the King - Avenged Sevenfold
Hail to the king new single was awesome!
Can't wait for the album.. How shadows has described its gonna be.. Its gonna be classic.. Desparately waiting for Acid rain. :D
This needs the top spot! A7X Rocks!
This is the best A7X album ever!


3What About Now - Bon Jovi
This album reflects the fact they are not the band they were decades ago... A more mature sound about what effects them now as a mature band... Not just party... Party.. Party... They have grown like there audience... Number one for a reason..

4Paramore - Paramore
Paramore did a great job! They did different genres and blend it with their sound. They did a wonderful change.
Album of the year

5Rise - Skillet
A fantastic blend of all of skillet's previous work: This is truly an amazing album
This and Vessel by Twenty One Pilots are the two best this year.


6Random Access Memories - Daft Punk
Music ahead of its time. So crisp, so detailed, with elements of retro and modern music. A piece of art that will definitely go down in history.
21? Are you kidding? A recent poll showed it to be top 3. Daft Punk is easily the best modern band out there along with other awesome stuff like Imagine Dragons and such.


Yes the EDM king Daft Punk is back with a bang after 8 years...

7Temper Temper - Bullet for My Valentine

8Construct - Dark Tranquility
One of the most powerful albums ever. Best of 2013


9The 20/20 Experience - Justin Timberlake
I feel like I have been born in the wrong generation... I can't believe that Snoop Dogg, Paramore or whatever other is above this... This album is critically and commercially more successful than any other album on this chart... It has got class and style both... JT just rocks!...
Now what the Hell? Not in top 10? Bull excretory matter!
Such A Nice Album! Heart BreaK!
Are you kidding me?! #25

Can't wait for this! I have been waiting since the 'Marry The Night' music video back in December 2011 for new stuff. We know it'll be great Gaga! Can't wait!

14Seeds - Dawn of Justice
This album is dope. It deserves the first place
Best french metalcore 2013

This is her lowest selling album and it totally shouldn't be.

21Release The Panic - Red
This Album is Great:
Hold Me Now, Die for You, Perfect Life, So Far Away, Glass House and The Moment we Come alive are all great and Amazing Songs.


22AM - Arctic Monkeys
I truly am baffled that this album wasn't already on the list. It's the second fastest selling of the year so far (behind Daft Punk), and it contains the best song this year (Do I Wanna Know? ). Arguably, it's their best album yet, and it covers so many areas, creating a different mood with each song. This is a fantastic album.
Are you really placing a guy named 'Earl Sweatshirt' above this epic band? Come on internet...

23Street King Immortal - 50 Cent

24Save Rock and Roll - Fall Out Boy
Should at least be in the top 10! Great album

27Notes From the Underground - Hollywood Undead
Th is band's music is better than most of the popular music that people listen to.

28Device - Device

29Night Visions - Imagine Dragons
Without a doubt the best new group of 2013. This is a spectacular debut album with some phenomenal songs. Very surprised that I had to add it to a list of 98 albums. Looking forward to hearing more from Imagine Dragons!
I've enjoyed and loved ALL of their songs, and that's a rare occurance from me. Each of their songs sound differently, they have great and deep lyrics.

54Girl Who Got Away - Dido
Decently great Electropop album. I'm not a big fan of electropop music but I love Dido. She recorded a very deep album. 'No Freedom' is a fantastic track


5513 - Black Sabbath
This album needs to be higher, the best album of 2013 is without any doubt "Hail to the King" by A7X, but "13" needs to be in the Top 10, it's the return of 3/4 of the original Black Sabbath lineup, and it's a great comeback


Awesome return to format! Brilliant musicianship

56The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell Volume 1 - Five Finger Death Punch

57Clash the Truth - Beach Fossils

58The Bones of What You Believe - Chvrches

59I Got a Boy - Girls' Generation
The best album in 2013 and the graphics had certainly improved really well! Added by Jessy.

60The Next Day - David Bowie
Ok; forget the "best since" comments. Just a great collection of songs, each with a story to tell, as you'd expect from the creator of Major Tom, Ziggy Stardust, Alladin sane, and Halloween jack.

61Wolf - Tyler, the Creator
I really like the way he put the album together, and if you actually listen to it, it gets extremely deep at some points. Definitely his best album yet.
This album is sick! Tyler, really took his game to a whole nother level on this one!

62Reflektor - Arcade Fire
"walking around, head full of sound, acting like we don't exist. We exist"

63Reborn - Trapt

64Hesitation Marks - Nine Inch Nails

65You're Nothing - Iceage

66House of Gold & Bones Part 2 - Stone Sour
Seriously? Lady Gaga etc. ? Whoever heard into the two "House of Gold and Bones" parts, wouldn't say that they don't deserve a place here!

67Love Lust Faith + Dreams - 30 Seconds to Mars
What it is doing here? :/


68Bula Quo - Status Quo

69Flashing Lights - Havana Brown

70Magnetic - The Goo Goo Dolls

71Repave - Volcano Choir

79Indicud - Kid Cudi

80The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here - Alice In Chains

81Agnez Mo - Agnes Monica

82Now What?! - Deep Purple

83The 1975 - The 1975
Self-titled debut album from the biggest upcoming band from my opinion. This album features sixteen songs that all could be lead singles, and it is no wonder it is no1 in the album charts.
This is so much better than Bon Jovi. With the exception of two tracks, I liked all of the songs, and it has 16 songs on it. It's a very impressive debut album.

84Xoxo - Exo
Best, not only in Korea! Just listen to songs and you'll see.

Amazing hardcore album, sometime like you never heard before. You definitely won't regret giving it a try!
