AS 2013 draws to a close, it’s time to look back on the last 12 months in music and as tradition goes, this involves the unveiling of our 25 Best Albums Of The Year – as always, it has been a struggle, we have fought and bled and finally agreed on the 25 best records of 2013. There will be three posts, the excitement will be unbearable and the top 5 will be revealed in a couple of days..
What did we get wrong? What did we miss? Well, nothing of course, this is THE list. No, just kidding, this is our view of the year in music, and as we have said many times before, we only write about the stuff we like and we can not reach everything.
Enjoy! …and use the comments to voice your opinions!
25. Seven Doors Hotel – The Arcade
I need to know why you left
Was it the pills or just the loneliness
I miss your shaky voice
And I wanna know, where did you go
Lovely Norwegian country-rock.. close to “The Jayhawks” (Alexander Lindbäck was actually stand-in for The Jayhawks drummer Tim O´Reagan a short period in the summer of 2011). This is just a very catchy album, great music to be played loud in the car (and elsewhere). “Gone Again” is the album’s highlight for me, a song about the late artist “St. Thomas” (a close friend of Alexander Lindbäck). If you like vital & fresh Country-rock you need to check this one out!
