The Top Ten

The Marshall Mathers LP 2 - Eminem
This album was just amazing. With the singles berzerk and rap god which were both great songs, especially rap god which was just a masterpiece. Then you add in the monster with rhianna sounding great. Then you have the sequel to one of his best works, Stan, Bad guy is a really good song and in the last verse it gets really intense and he pours out his mind and it's great and he gave us headlights with Nate Ruess which was a great song about his mom, a big apology and I love you which was great. Then we get legacy, so far, rhyme or reason, desperation, wicked ways, and love game which were all just great. Simply a great sequel to his marshal mathers lp
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

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..

4Random 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.


Random access memories won the Grammy for best album of the year


5Paramore - Paramore
This album is like a treasure hunt or a good book. Each time you listen, you hear something different, and it never gets old. Last Hope is one of their best songs ever, and every song is single worthy. One of the best albums of 2013.
Paramore did a great job! They did different genres and blend it with their sound. They did a wonderful change.
Album of the year

6Stars Dance - Selena Gomez
This is the best album of 2013.Trust me.Listen to the songs.They are the best.I just love Selena Gomez.Nabeel
Amazing vocals in this whole track! Selena hit it out of the park with all her amazing notes and lyrics.


This should be in the top 10! It was amazing!

7Rise - 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.


8ARTPOP - Lady Gaga
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!
Yay! ARTPOP we have waited so long for you to come out! Us little monsters couldn't wait any longer! Now we have to be patient!
Best of 2013..just wait


9Temper Temper - Bullet for My Valentine

10AM - 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...
21st century equivalent to the Beatles. Not that 1d crap

The Contenders

11Sempiternal - Bring Me The Horizon
Breathtaking, amazing album.


12The Paradigm Shift - Korn
Not their best album, but the best album of 2013 for sure.


13Construct - Dark Tranquility
One of the most powerful albums ever. Best of 2013


14Britney Jean - Britney Spears
This is her lowest selling album and it totally shouldn't be.
Catchy and beautiful the underrated album of 2013

15The 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!
IT doesn't offend me that it's not in the top ten, because this is just the generation nowadays: They don't appreciate good music.


16Nothing Was the Same - Drake

17... Like Clockwork - Queens of the Stone Age
This is the best stuff QOST has put out since Songs for the Deaf


18Seeds - Dawn of Justice
This album is dope. It deserves the first place
Best french metalcore 2013

19All That Echoes - Josh Groban

20Save Rock and Roll - Fall Out Boy
Should at least be in the top 10! Great album
Best album of 2013

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.


22Push the Sky Away - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

23Reincarnated - Snoop Dogg/Snoop Lion
Should be in Top Ten YEAH MAN. BRRAAH

24Street King Immortal - 50 Cent

25Prism - Katy Perry
It's so amazing katy parry finally back to normal and its album almost result of her relent

26I Am Not a Human Being II - Lil Wayne

27Night 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.

28Yeezus - Kanye West
Best rap álbum for sure

2913 - 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

30Bad Blood - Bastille

31Notes From the Underground - Hollywood Undead
Th is band's music is better than most of the popular music that people listen to.
Finally they get a good spot this band is so onderrated

32Super Collider - Megadeth

33Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones - Black Veil Brides
I was expecting a good album after Set The World On Fire, but unfortunately it wasn't that much good. I think there's only one good song called "In The End".


34Native - OneRepublic
A flawless album with music of unique kinds... Just go for the song 'Can't Stop' and you'll understand!
Definitely deserves to be topper than 28! (while Mr. Funky Wayne's up there in 18th)
Really really good whether you like this type of music or not this album is impressive
The best OneRepublic album

35The 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.

36Vengeance Falls - Trivium

37Tomorrow We Die Alive - Born of Osiris
Best album of the year, can't stop listening to it


38Demi - Demi Lovato
Why is this at 29! Its much better than Selena's Stars Dance! It MUST be in the top ten. Vote for it Guys!
29th! Not good for an album like this. This must be Number 1!


This Is The Greatest Album Of 2013. Go Demi Lovato. You Are The Best. Heart Attack Is The Most Perfect Song Of This Album. Wow.

71I Got a Boy - Girls' Generation
The best album in 2013 and the graphics had certainly improved really well! Added by Jessy.

72Wolf - 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.

100The 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.
