Amazon's Best Albums Of 2013

Amazon Rate this # 1

What I love most about Amazon’s yearly best of is that it feels voted on by friends and colleagues and not pros. How else to explain Miley Cyrus and Neko Case’s appearance? They don’t go far off the beaten trail, usually they a coupla zingers in there that make you wonder what you missed but not this year.

The only real revelation for me was Dearheaven who I must have missed along the way, otherwise this is more or less what I expect though I though Isbell was more of a secret

The grades are mine:

1. Daft Punk – Random Access Memories – A-

2. Vampire Weekend – Modern Vampires of the City – A-

3. Chvrches – Bones of What You Believe – B

4. Jason Isbell – Southeastern – A

5. Tegan and Sara – Heartthrob – B

7. Lorde – Pure Heroine – C+

8. Bastille – Bad Blood – C

9. The National – Trouble Will Find Me – A-

10. Kacey Musgraves – Same Trailer Different Park – B+

11. Drake – Nothing Was The Same – B+

13. Haim – Days Are Gone – C
