Before the new year really kicks off with some of the highly anticipated records of 2014 (new Mastodon album, Machine Head, new Tool album?), I wanted to spend a few minutes recapping my personal highlights of 2013. Musically it was a particular great year with lots of amazing concerts, new exciting bands and fantastic new records. There were a few albums from long-time favourites while most of them were completely new discoveries for me. This is my personal 2013 album of the year list. Here we go.
