My Top 25 Albums of 2013

So here we are. Another one down. I tell ya, this was a tough year to pick the best albums. In fact, usually I stress out because I can't find twenty-five records I'm really crazy about. Not the case in 2013. When I began compiling and realized I was going to have to cut a couple dozen, it was a bummer. But let's just forego the honorable mentions and get to work. Feel free to bitch, moan, and question my judgement, I'd love to get any feedback. And as always, thanks to the many of you that frequent this ol' mess, even when I'm slacking. I truly appreciate it. Here we go...
