Top Ten Albums of 2013
So, I still get asked to contribute to the annual Village Voice ‘Pazz and Jop’ Poll – a Best Of The Year list that was once the most influential in the United States, though between changing music media and changing musical formats it can no longer honestly claim that same degree of importance.
In compiling my Top 10s, and looking at those Best of the Year lists already published, I’m always struck by how many albums I have NOT heard, at least in their entirety. I tend to spend much of January and February catching up on Those That I Have Missed. All that said, here’s the form I sent in just before Christmas. These are the albums (one is but an EP) I found myself returning to again and again. Click on the image to enlarge.
