Louder Than War’s Albums of the Year 2013: 50 – 1And so, with no further ado, here’s our top 50 albums of the year 2013.

A reminder that these albums were selected by the core editorial team at Louder Than War so pretty much all the albums below featured in at least one of our top 10s – and perhaps also worth noting that the number one didn’t come close to featuring in two of our lists at all! Such are the vagaries of democracy!

We should probably also point out that we didn’t disqualify the Goldblade album.  and also that it was chosen because it’s good not because it’s the bosses band! It probably goes without saying but John didn’t vote for his own album!

Final thing – after finishing this I realised we had two number 5s. So I’ve bumped everyone down one and we now have a joint number 50. I could have tried to hide it by going all the way back and bumping no. 150 off the end of the list but I’m sure one of you would have noticed and alerted the “what’s right n proper” police. So I thought it wisest to come clean and just leave us with a joint 50.

Finally, stay tuned for our writers #ltwaoty list which we’ll run from Wednesday of next week – it’s an interesting contrast!
