Best of 2013

We thought long and hard on what songs, albums, and artists have been impressionable this year – in fact, impressionable enough to deserve the title “Best of 2013” – and the results are below. The rules for the list are pretty strict: only songs from 2013 i.e. not singles released in 2012 that were re-released on albums in 2013. Yeah. Stringent. We figured we’d present the list to you in chronological order and with cover art so you can relive your year by album release and by image. What has been your favorite for 2013?
