Beste albums van 2013

te

Well it was great to be a music fan in 2013. We were seduced by comebacks and reunions we never expected to hear at all, or albums from new talents that seemed to come out of nowhere. And here it is: the final countdown of the past year containing the best albums from an eclectic panel of musicians, music critics and record buying aficionados. Their ten favourite albums plus a so called ‘special release’. Many thanks to all contributors

One thought on “Beste albums van 2013

  1. Chapeau voor de mooie diversiteit en kwaliteit van de lijstjes en Light Up Gold van Parquet Courts is indeed a very cool album! Alleen dateert dit album alweer uit augustus 2012. De herpersing van de LP en de CD-uitgave zijn inderdaad uit 2013.
