Ladies and Gentleman, we pulled a Bud Selig. We have a tie.

You're just gonna have to listen to both of our #1's very carefully and break it yourself.

In any case, here are The 50 Best Albums of 2013 . . . according to us (with convenient links to stream, because we love you).

  2. Trouble Will Find Me, Lessons and Southeastern have consumed me this year. Glad to see someone recognizing Ha Ha Tonka's phenomenal album.

  3. I don't even know how I missed this album released April 2013. I have just listened to Generationals "Heza". Jesus, this instantly makes my top albums of the year. It was like pouring warm butter directly into my ear.
