The Afterword Top Albums of 2013 in Full

With huge thanks to Afterworder Bungalow Joe, who has tirelessly compiled the following from 1,232 votes, and thank you to all those who contributed their favourite LPs of 2013.

You voted for almost 450 different records, which only goes to show just how much flippin' music there is out there and how hard it is to form a consensus on what the best stuff is.
Suffice to say if anyone is wondering if they've missed any good records this year, you might want to tick off some of these before you spend the Record Tokens you got for Christmas.

So here, is that list in full starting with your Top 10:
1 David Bowie : The Next Day
2 Prefab Sprout : Crimson/Red
3 Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds : Push the Sky Away

7 Steve Mason : Monkey Minds In The Devils Time
8 Arctic Monkeys : AM
8 Public Service Broadcasting : Inform Educate Entertain
10 Vampire Weekend : Modern Vampires Of The City

Comments

Numbers 1 and 11, a 79 and a couple of 108s.

Two in the top twenty! And I could only think of 5.

No idea of what this "means' if anything, but thanks to BJ for all the work

and thanks Admin2 for your hard work.

Regardless of any copying and pasting that could hopefully be done, that is a true labour of love and invaluable to anyone with another week off work.
Thank you.

Nothing normal about my tastes! Probably means I should start working backwards through the 171's.

Err... does Broken English qualify?
