Ranking the Top 20 Albums of 2013
With Christmas around the corner, it's time for another first in my time writing for the Boar: the best-of list.The plan for our section this year is to take the nominations of several writers and compile them into one list detailing our favourite albums of 2013. The winners will be revealed when the next issue comes out in a couple of weeks, but for now, here's my personal top 20:

Now, there'll no doubt be some points of contention here, as ever.For a start, I won't pretend to be an expert when it comes to the rap genre, butwas so taken byYeezusandAcid Rapthat they had to make the cut.As for some of the less obvious choices, it's hard not to admire the artistry of Steven Wilson's prog-rock wig-out, and I've had an affinity for Bill Callahan's music since 2009sSometimes I Wish We Were an Eagle.Phosphorescent's album also happens to feature one of my favourite tracks of the year but I'll get to that in another post.
These albums made compiling this list all the more difficult in a year that's been littered with huge releases: The National, Laura Marling, Queens of the Stone Age, Vampire Weekend it's telling thatAMand Reflektor, two of my most anticipated albums this year from two of my favourite bands, aredown in eighth and ninth place respectively. Then, of course, there'sRandom Access Memories, which I've chosen as my winner here (again, I may go into more detail on that another time).It'll be interesting to see how this compares to the choices of our other writers, but one thing I'm sure we'll all agree on is that 2013 has been a very, very good year for music.
Cheers everyone! I actually emailed a pal that I could describe her gorgeous Burlingon based residential painting companys, https://aloftgroup.ca using a good piece. So if you are searching for a painting service within the Ontario locale, they really were really good.
