Kev’s albums of 2013

Ah, another year – another run down of my albums of 2013.
As democratically voted for by a panel consisting of me.

I’m aware there’s some high profile absentees – in some cases I found 20 albums better and in other cases, well, some of the bands really should be making better albums 😉

So, here are my thoughts… in reverse order…

20) Partly Faithful – Lazarus Under Glass
19) Covenant – Leaving Babylon
18) Kitty in a Casket – Bittersweet
17) Waterglass – The Bleak Shall Inherit…
16) Mono Inc – Nimmermehr
15) New Years Day – Victim to Villain
14) XP8 – Adrenochrome
13) A Life Divided – The Great Escape
12) Alterred – The Time it Takes to Smile
11) Bad Pollyanna – Monsterous Child
10) Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – Push the Sky Away
9) Freakangel – The Ones to Fall
8) Jordan Reyne – The Annihilation Sequence
7) Terrolokaust – Spit the Poison Out
6) Mesh – Automation Baby
5) Rabia Sorda – Hotel Suicide
4) Comaduster – Hollow Worlds
3) The .Invalid – The Aesthetics of Failure
2) The March Violets – Made Glorious
1) Chvrches – The Bones of What You Believe

There we go.
Special mention to Aesthetic Perfection – best single without an album for ‘Antibody’
