***2013 Edition of Reaper's Favorite Albums of the Year***

It's time of the year again. It's everyone's favorite holiday present. Etc.

As always, this is a list of my personal favorite albums of the year. It's not meant to be an objective "best-of" list, because while I listen to hundreds of new albums each year I still fall far short of listening to enough to feel comfortable making an objective claim. My usual genre tendencies towards metal and hip-hop are as present as ever. Hopefully you'll find some albums you will come to dig through this list.

I'll be posting it out over the next day. I'm doing 30 albums this year.

30. The Knife – Shaking the Habitual
29. Rittz – The Life and Times of Jonny Valiant
28. The National – Trouble Will Find Me
27. Arcade Fire – Reflektor
26. Chvrches - The Bones of What You Believe
25. Ces Cru - Constant Energy Struggles
24. DGM – Momentum
23. Action Bronson – Blue Chips 2
22. Kvelertak – Meir
21. A$AP Rocky – Long Live A$AP
20. Brandy Clark – 12 Stories
19. Mr. Mother****in eXquire – Kismet
18. Death Grips – Government Plates
17. ST 2 Lettaz – The G…Growth & Development
16. Ayreon – The Theory of Everything
15. Kacey Musgraves – Same Trailer, Different Park
14. Magic Circle – Magic Circle
13. Gorguts – Colored Sands
12. Beyonce – Beyonce
11. Daft Punk – Random Access Memories
10. Haim – Days Are Gone
09. Pusha T – My Name Is My Name
08. Dessa – Parts of Speech
07. Danny Brown – Old
06. Deafheaven – Sunbather
05. El-P & Killer Mike – Run the Jewels
04. Jason Isbell – Southeastern
03. Rokia Traore – Beautiful Africa
02. Kanye West – Yeezus
01. Janelle Monae – The Electric Lady

As for metal, I went through the stereogum best metal album and listened to a few different albums there. Some of the ones I liked:

Inter Arma: Sky Burial
Windhand: Soma
Wolvserpent: Perigaea Antahkarana
Skeletonwitch: Serpents Unleashed

I just came across Windhand the other day and really dug Soma as well. I was about to post it up on here and NewChief beat me to the punch.

I was surprised to see that TesseracT's Altered State and Steven Wilson's The Raven That Refused to Sing were excluded from your top selections. Otherwise, absolutely phenomenal selections as always, Reaper.

(As an aside, after the release of Sunbather, I can not contain my fangirl-like excitement to see Deafhaven in Lawrence this spring.)

I'm the first to admit that Repaer's lists are just occasional reminders of how little new music I listen to anymore, but I came here to post those very two.

MVotC is a fricken' national treasure.

Agreed. I really, really expected VW to take a step back with a third album, but it's become my favorite of theirs by far, and VW has pretty much been the soundtrack to my family's life for the last 5 years. Just this morning, my 8 year old was making his breakfast and singing "Step."

I'll also say that this was either a really good year in electronic music, or it was the year that electronic music began to grow on me. I listened to a LOT of electronic type shit (Burial, Disclosure, Darkside, Oneohtrix Point Never, etc...) this year.

Deafheaven reminds me of City of Caterpillar.

That's a throw-back and a half to a different time in my life.

Enjoyable listen.

Nicolas Jaar's first full length album was one of my favorites of 2011, but I think this Darkside project might be even better.

Listened to it again today. It's fantastic. Have you listened to the latest Burial EP? Crazy good. Halfway through the third track.... Tears.

I enjoyed it but not as much as some of his previous stuff. I did give it only a single cursory listen though so I'll have to return to it when I get the chance.

It feels like forever ago that this album came out. I haven’t tired of it. “Goldie” is still amazing. “1 Train” still knocks. I even warmed up to the Skrillex-produced “Wild For the Night.” And I can’t forget about the Clams Casino-produced “LVL.” A$AP Rocky will never be confused for a great lyricist. He’s not a great rapper either, but he does just enough with his wordplay and changes his flow up just enough to make everything work. He’s got such charisma. He owns the beats he raps on, and the beats he picks are typically stellar. I may not care about anyone else in the A$AP Mob, but Rocky needs to keep on putting out material. He’s two for two on albums now. Great start to his career.
That's because I sent the album to you this time last year

As for Yeezus being #2 let me quote Charlemagne Tha God "yeezus was garbage".
