The Best Music of 2013 – At Least According to G.W. Hill

posted December 31, 2013, 12:11 pm by GWHill | Filed Under Music News | comment Leave a Comment

Early in the year I thought this was going to be a pretty mediocre year from music. I wasn’t hearing a lot of stuff that was really exceptional. The thing is, as the year progressed, that really changed. In fact, it wound up quite difficult to get this list to any kind of decent length. I had to make some tough cuts to get it into a small enough format to work.

Since I’ve published full album reviews for all these discs here at Music Emission, each one of these will include a link to the appropriate review.

I will say that the order here will probably change with me depending on the day – but for today, this is it – in reverse order.

Honorable Mention: so let’s call them numbers 11-15, but in no particular order:

State Urge – White Rock Experience State Urge - White Rock

Billy Cobham – Compass PointBilly Cobham Compass Point

Jann Klose – MosaicJann Klose Mosaic

Jody Quine – Seven Jody Quine Seven

Matt Bennett – Charlie Murphy is a Dead Man Jody Quine Seven

Here are my Top Ten (and these are in order).

10: Kingbathmat – Overcoming the Monster Kingbathmat Overcoming the Monster

9: Liquid Casing – A Separate|DivideLiquid Casing A Separate Divide

8: William Shatner – Ponder the MysteryWilliam Shatner Ponder the Mystery

7: Motorhead – Aftershock Motorhead Aftershock

6: Flash – Featuring Ray Bennett & Colin Carter Flash Featuring Ray Bennett and Colin Carter

And, now for the top five:

Number Five: Queensrÿche – QueensrÿcheQueensryche Queensryche

Number Four: Gandalf’s Fist – A Day in the Life of a Universal WandererGandalf's Fist A Day in the Life of a Universal Wanderer

Number three: Kitchens of Distinction – FollyKitchens of Distinction Folly

Number Two: Levin Minnemann Rudess – Levin Minnemann Rudess Levin Minneman Rudess Levin Minnemann Rudess

And, the number one album for the year:
