My Top 10 Albums 2013

This year, I realized that aside from my usual criteria (repeat playability, no/few skipped tracks), one other subjective characteristic had to be there: I had to imagine at some point walking down a street and having this album be the soundtrack behind me.

10. Muchacho, Phosphorescent

9. Wonderful Glorious, Eels

8. If You Wait, London Grammar

7. Yes It’s True, Polyphonic Spree

6. Reflektor, Arcade Fire

5. When It Was Now, Atlas Genius
