Coble’s 2013 Top Albums List

Guest Post By: Jen “Coble” Hopper

Coble’s Top Albums of 2013:

Justin Timberlake – The 20/20 Experience part 1

In all seriousness, Justin Timberlake wins 2013. When this album first came out, it took a couple of listens before it sunk in. Life was empty without a song about courting in space (only he could make a song about that sexy) but now I can’t go back– no I won’t go back to a world without it. Everyone in our house loves it and it is the go-to music when we don’t know what to listen to. Whether it’s my speakers, SNL, Jimmy Fallon, my heart etc; I bow in front of the king, JT.

Of Monsters and Men – My Head is An Animal

This album is so rich and fulfilling. I discovered it in the spring and truly haven’t been able to wear it out. Harmonies are my weakness and so is catchy folk music, apparently. It’s been a theme this year for me.

The Lumineers

Again with the catchy folk music. Jeremiah Fraites voice is young and vulnerable and perfect for this Americana sound. “Ho Hey” sucked me in and I haven’t left. It’s reminiscent of Cold War Kids in all the best ways.

Bastille – Bad Blood

Everything is Bastille and nothing hurts.

Fall Out Boy – Save Rock n’ Roll

This is the best comeback album of the decade so far, I will fight anyone who argues (with this album as a soundtrack, and I will win). Perhaps my opinions are blurred by nearly ten years of strong appreciation for this band, but I have no apologies for it.

Note: Arcade Fire has a special place in my heart but I regret that this year’s album has not yet spoken to me.
