Albums Of 2013 - No. 10 to No. 1

1. Vampire Weekend 'Modern Vampires of the City'
They haven't just reached the Next Level; they've conquered the art of songwriting, created their own city and filled it with heart and intrigue. Never have they been this serious, this fun, this good.




2. The National 'Trouble Will Find Me'
If you can't feel good because of miserable indie, there's something wrong with you.





3. Jon Hopkins 'Immunity'
Mmmm, pretty.





4. Frightened Rabbit 'Mechanical Bull'
Why aren't these taking over the world?!





5. Arcade Fire 'Reflektor'
We are lucky to be living in the age of Arcade Fire.





6. HAIM 'Days Are Gone'
Debut album of the year.





7. Daft Punk 'Random Access Memories'
Kings of Dance show us how it's done.





8. Arctic Monkeys 'AM'
Most exciting band around.





9. Wave Machines 'Pollen'
Most underrated band around.





10. Franz Ferdinand 'Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action'
Paying us back on all the promise.
