Top Ten Albums of 2013

2013 marks the year that even die hard music collectors (like myself) bought only a handful of albums on vinyl or cd. But these top ten were ones I wanted to have and hold. The National dominated with one of the best albums of the decade, let alone year. I sat on the couch and read all of the lyrics in the booklet for the first time in ages. Song of the year: The National's "Pink Rabbits" from Trouble Will Find Me.
