Hi. Kim peeking in here for a quick minute for an end-of-year review of sorts – featuring (some of) my favorite album releases of the year. 2013 was a great year for music, so this is by no means a complete list. There were SO MANY new releases by favorite artists, and new releases that led to some of my favorite songs of the year, though not necessarily favorite albums. But for sake of space and attention spans I’m keeping it short-ish (yeah, right. Like I can do that!) and only focusing on the ones I think every music fan should own, or at least listen to. These are the albums from which I absolutely love all or almost all of the songs contained on them; the ones that have been in constant rotation since I got them.
