MusicLuLu*s Top Ten Albums of 2013!

Fotor010700424

 

AM – Arctic Monkeys

As long time fans of the über-talented foursome known at the Arctic Monkeys, we were beyond stoked when this album dropped, and it has been on heavy rotation since day one. From start to finish, AM drips with cool crooning & liquid lyrics, and makes you fall even more in love with Alex Turner than  you ever thought possible.

Highlights: R U Mine?, One For the Road, Arabella

 

…Like Clockwork – Queens of the Stone Age

No newcomers to the rock game, QOTSA have done it again with their sixth studio album. We dare say this is the best yet, hitting harder than ever with grit and guts galore.

Highlights: I Sat By the Ocean, If I Had A Tail, Smooth Sailing

 

Overgrown – James Blake

James Blake is a dreamboat with a voice that can make you simply weak in the knees, and with his sophomore release, he proves once again that he is much more than a pretty face. This album is the perfect soundtrack for just about any mood, and is worth several spins. Per day.

Highlights: Retrograde, Life Round Here, Voyeur

 

The 20/20 Experience - Justin Timberlake

We know, we know. Justin dropped TWO albums last year. And both were so spectacular, we can’t possibly choose one, so Justin makes the list with the complete 20/20 Experience! This album is bordering on perfection, hitting all the hot spots with the jammiest of jams and ballads for broken hearts.

Highlights: Strawberry Bubblegum, Mirrors, Only When I Walk Away

 

The Bones of What You Believe – CHVRCHES

One of our most anticipated albums of 2013, CHVRCHES stole our hearts with the beautiful voice of Lauren Mayberry set over some of the catchiest beats our ears have ever heard! If you haven’t listened this one yet, stop what you’re doing, put it on, and dance the day away!

Highlights: The Mother We Share, Gun, Recover

BESTOF2013

2013 was such an incredible year for music. Miley came in like a wrecking ball, Beyoncé shocked the world by waking up one morning and deciding to drop an album, and Justin Timberlake made us swoon with not one, but TWO fantastic records that we still cannot get enough of. With 365 days of tunes that totally rocked our socks off, it would seem impossible to choose only ten, but… we have done it! Below are our absolute favorite songs of 2013 (in no particular order), the tracks that we will still be singing well into the new year!

“One for the Road” – Arctic Monkeys

“Royals” – Lorde

“Counting Stars” – OneRepublic

“Retrograde” – James Blake
