Best Albums of 2013


The Top TenXW

1The 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

Hell yeah, one of the best Eminem album

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! - Nintendonix

3Random 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.

RAM isn't just the best album of 2013. So far, it's probably the best album of the 2010s. It shows class, restraint, taste, and just plain talent not seen in the sparkly glitz of the pop divas, the grimy, mostly mediocre sludge of the rap world, and the just plain terribleness of the emo scene. (Seriously, what an awful excuse for music).

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. - PeterG28

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

4... Like Clockwork - Queens of the Stone Age

The very moment I bought this album I listened to it in its entirety, and every track is brilliant, and even at points absolutely breathtaking, I'll just say that the song I appear Missing is possibly the best song Queens Of The Stone Age have ever made. - Quart

Just amazing. This album does not have a single bad song on it.

This is the best stuff QOST has put out since Songs for the Deaf - beasthound

5Construct - Dark Tranquility

One of the most powerful albums ever. Best of 2013 - EvilAngel

6Sempiternal - Bring Me The Horizon

There was hope for 2013's music. And that hope was Sempiternal.

Breathtaking, amazing album. - EvilAngel

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. - Alpha101

8Nothing Was the Same - Drake
9Temper Temper - Bullet for My Valentine
10What 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..

The Newcomers

?The Raven That Refused to Sing - Steven Wilson

The Contenders

11The Paradigm Shift - Korn

Not their best album, but the best album of 2013 for sure. - Verderame

12Modern Vampires of the City - Vampire Weekend

Everything about this album blows away everything about any other album made in 2013. If this doesn't get to the top 10 eventually, then send me your hat and I'll eat it.

The Quality songs of this album are unmatchable,

13The 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. - Sjinkiie

Are you kidding me?! #25

14ARTPOP - 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 - teleroy

15Seeds - Dawn of Justice

This album is dope. It deserves the first place

Best french metalcore 2013


16Stars 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. - gregoryberry_22

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

17AM - 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...

Wow! I am so suprised this is not even #5! This album is so great! - KidA

18Paramore - 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

19Wretched 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". - tiagocowboy11

20Yeezus - Kanye West
