I think it's a bit too early for me to answer that cause's there's still have a good amount of albums from this year that I want to listen to. If you ask a month from now I might have a more definite list but now I really can't be sure. Possible candidates though: Vessel by Twenty One Pilots, Fall Out Boy's Save Rock and Roll, Paramore's Paramore, Daft Punk's Random Access Memories, and Bastille's Bad Blood.

Well it's no masterpiece, but I simply love Paul McCartney's "New". I know I give Pop a lot of hate, but Paul's silly, happy songs have always had a unique charm towards me.

Been compiling my top 10 as of late as the year nears its end. This is what my top 5 looks like atm:-

#1 : Touché Amoré - Is Survived By
#2 : Kanye West - Yeezus
#3 : tricot - THE
#4 : The Drones - I See Seaweed
#5 : V V Brown - Samson & Delilah (this album was a genuine surprise, one of the best and most overlooked pop albums from this year definitely)

I still got a lot of albums I'd like to listen to that I happened to miss, or ones that are in my backlog, or ones I'd like to revisit. Feeling pretty comfortable with the top 5, but #6-#10 is near-impossible to do. I reckon a lot of albums I liked will be left off the list.

You know I had to add some Hans Zimmer/MOS love in there somewhere. Probably Enjoyed Wale's the most, actually, after MOS.

Avril Lavigne ─ Avril Lavigne
In many cases most music artists use the self-titled name for their debut or sophomore album, but Avril Lavigne saved it for her fifth. Which turned out to be a pretty awesome album! I'll go as far as saying it's been the best pop album of the year (IMO).

ARTPOP - Lady Gaga
Disappointing sales, blah, blah, blah. This was a great third album for Gaga and I love it. It's energetic and to me it's a great mix between The Fame and Born This Way. Gypsy is probably the best song Lady Gaga has ever done and MANiCURE has a habit of giving me life when that chorus kicks in.

Pure Heroine
- Lorde
Royals got so much radio play and attention, but I feel the standout song in this album is Tennis Court. Then again, I could be biased, because that's my favorite song off the album out of many great ones.

Save Rock and Roll - Fall Out Boy
There are so many great songs off of this album, hnnnnng!

Wrapped in Red - Kelly Clarkson
It's the Christmas holidays, so it's only right I include what is an incredible Christmas album released this year. Kelly Clarkson can do no wrong.

My favorites are:
  • Midnight Memories - One Direction
  • ARTPOP - Lady Gaga
  • Random Access Memories - Daft Punk
  • Yours Truly - Ariana Grande
I really like PRISM but it definitely doesn't crack my top three or four.

I've gotten a lot of mileage out of The Marshall Mathers LP 2 and Yeezus, so those are my votes.

The Bones Of What You Believe - CHVRCHES
Jesus Christ this is a good album. CHVRCHES is just so ridiculously good and Lauren Mayberry has the perfect voice for her role.

The only other albums I listened to from this year were Random Access Memories by Daft Punk and We Need Medicine by The Fratellis. I like both albums(in hindsight RAM is their weakest album, but it's not bad by any means), but choosing 2 albums out of 3 as favorites just doesn't make sense.

EDIT: Oh man, Bankrupt! was released this year? Where has the time gone?

This guy nailed it! Took the words right out of my mouth. It even has one of my all time favorite songs, Here's to Never Growing Up! It's personally my favorite album by far this year.

I'd have to give Ariana Grande's "Album of the Year" title, however, aka my other favorite album. Yours Truly definitely made her become an even bigger star & proved how bright her talent truly is than just being known as Cat Valentine from her Victorious/Sam & Cat role. I view 2013 as a huge breakout year for her, actually the #1 breakout artist of the year!

Because the Internet a contender for this list as well, for sure. Gambino's stepped his game up.

RAM is a decent album but honestly lost replay value for me and the fact that you have exciting disco-like tracks alongside more 'deep' ones is kind of a turn off to the album. I wouldn't say its boring but the sound isn't cohesive enough. With Daft Punk though I'd prefer more like Get Lucky than with Within or the Game of Love. Daft Punk changes their sound up every album but I don't like their change this time around.

I actually disagree. Maybe it's because I've grown up on deep music, or whatever, but those songs are excellent in my opinion. In fact, I don't like songs like Get Lucky because they feel boring, flat, and repetitive. Or maybe I'm just screwed up in the head

Eh, I feel as if the Indie scene is becoming really bloated with terrible copycat bands. It's one big game of follow the leader. There are few diamonds in the ruff. Particularly stuff like Interpol, Empire! Empire!(I Was A Lonely Estate), Mogwai, and Self Defense Family.

I'm an album person, so I listen to albums from start to finish, rather than buying or saving my favorite songs off of a particular album. That means I have a lot of albums, which means my list of favorites is a lot longer than the typical list of favorite albums of the year. So here's mine, in no particular order:

Beach Fossils - Clash The Truth
Paramore - Paramore
Kid Cudi - Indicud
Summer Camp - Summer Camp
Hoodie Allen - Crew Cuts
Local Natives - Hummingbird
Twenty One Pilots - Vessels
Ellie Goulding - Halcyon Days
Icona Pop - This Is... Icona Pop
Fall Out Boy - Save Rock and Roll
Hunter Hayes - Hunter Hayes (Encore)
Sleigh Bells - Bitter Rivals
Chris Webby - Homegrown
Lady Gaga - ARTPOP
Mac Miller - Watching Movies With the Sound Off
