Favorite Icon, Full size
2013 brought great new releases from some of my favorite artists and introduced me to some incredible new artists as well. Of the 121 albums I reviewed in 2013, my “Top 30” is listed in the order that I reviewed them because I simply cannot rank them in an order of preference. All of these albums have that something special that made me say “Wow!” Links go to my reviews.
