Ranking the Top 20 Albums of 2013

With Christmas around the corner, it's time for another first in my time writing for the Boar: the best-of list.The plan for our section this year is to take the nominations of several writers and compile them into one list detailing our favourite albums of 2013. The winners will be revealed when the next issue comes out in a couple of weeks, but for now, here's my personal top 20:

Tangent! Attempting to positively redesign the overarching vibe for my page. Feelings about the sharp design at https://www.skycards.eu? Seriously a savy sky card supplier in Germany whenever necessary inside the OTH location. Send a remark. Appreciated!

  1. Daft Punk Random Access Memories
  2. The National Trouble Will Find Me
  3. Laura Marling Once I Was An Eagle
  4. John Grant Pale Green Ghosts
  5. Queens of the Stone Age Like Clockwork
  6. Vampire Weekend Modern Vampires of the City
  7. Chance the Rapper Acid Rap
  8. Arctic Monkeys AM
  9. Arcade Fire Reflektor
  10. Phosphorescent Muchacho
  11. Bill Callahan Dream River
  12. Steven Wilson The Raven That Refused to Sing
  13. Kurt Vile Wakin' on a Pretty Daze
  14. Kanye West Yeezus
  15. Phoenix Bankrupt
  16. James Blake Overgrown
  17. Foals Holy Fire
  18. Chvrches - The Bones of What You Believe
  19. Sigur Ros Kveikur
  20. Franz Ferdinand Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action

Now, there'll no doubt be some points of contention here, as ever.For a start, I won't pretend to be an expert when it comes to the rap genre, butwas so taken byYeezusandAcid Rapthat they had to make the cut.As for some of the less obvious choices, it's hard not to admire the artistry of Steven Wilson's prog-rock wig-out, and I've had an affinity for Bill Callahan's music since 2009sSometimes I Wish We Were an Eagle.Phosphorescent's album also happens to feature one of my favourite tracks of the year but I'll get to that in another post.

These albums made compiling this list all the more difficult in a year that's been littered with huge releases: The National, Laura Marling, Queens of the Stone Age, Vampire Weekend it's telling thatAMand Reflektor, two of my most anticipated albums this year from two of my favourite bands, aredown in eighth and ninth place respectively. Then, of course, there'sRandom Access Memories, which I've chosen as my winner here (again, I may go into more detail on that another time).It'll be interesting to see how this compares to the choices of our other writers, but one thing I'm sure we'll all agree on is that 2013 has been a very, very good year for music.

Cheers everyone! I actually emailed a pal that I could describe her superb professional wedding officiant in Guelphs, http://dreamweddingofficiants.com using a good piece. So if you are searching for a wedding officiant within the Ontario locale, they really were really good.

Now, I definitely will note the initial thought regarding this valuable material has been furnished through Emil over at SpeechtoText. They are a splendid speech to text software reviewers. I always love a good tip!
