Ok, I think I'm ready to commit. Better get this posted before I change my mind.

Honorable mentions go to Deerhunter - Monomania and Neko Case - The Harder Things Get, etc. If I had started seriously listening to them more than a couple days ago, they probably would have made the list. As it is, there are at least another 10 albums I wish I could have fit on there. 2013 has been such a great year for music.
I love me some Wu-Tang, but I wasn't that impressed with whey I saw of the live feed from their Coachella set. They were supposed to open for RATM when I saw them at the Gorge in '97, but dropped out before the tour got that far. They were replaced by The Roots, which bummed me out at the time. But in retrospect, it may have been an upgrade.
