The 2013 chart year began with the 2 December, 2012 issue and ended with the one dated 24 November, 2013. During this tracking period, I've listened to 2223 tracks from 459 artists, which are included on 661 albums, with 7450 plays in all. The Year-End recaps reflect each track, album or artist’s accumulated scrobbling points and ranking points, based specifically on their weekly plays and ranks, respectively. See also the revised annual Year-End charts from 2008 to 2012 with the same methodology; as well as the reloaded annual Music Awards from 2008 to 2012.

Random Axe - Random Axe
Key Tracks: Random Call, Another One
It’s a promising debut from the hip-hop trio, but not quite good enough to be among the top 10 albums of 2011. Rappers Sean Price & Guilty Simpson do little to distinguish themselves as anything other than average, though Black Milk’s skilled production is worth a closer listen. His choice of warm, analog drum sounds forms a welcome foundation.
Travis Barker - Give The Drummer Some
Key Tracks: Can A Drummer Get Some, Beat Goes On
For his debut solo album, producer and former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker recruited a diverse and respectable bullpen of collaborators ranging from Raekwon to Lupe Fiasco to Busta Rhymes. For the most part, he succeeds in meeting two considerable challenges: 1) creating a good rap/rock record without insulting either genre, 2) building appropriate soundscapes to accommodate the different rappers’ individual styles.

Serengeti - Family & Friends
Intelligent poetry from a percipient tongue, what more could you want? Yes that question is rhetorical. Serengeti’s rap skills are humorous, modern, hip and thought provoking but primarily relevant to the world we live in. The album was produced by Why? frontman Yoni Wolf, and this is evident in the sullen jazzy instrumentation, which plays a key role in the background to guide the listener along through the cave of rap. Great visulisation, use of metaphors, joyful hooks and stories are all packed in neatly. Family & Friends is a must listen album that all hip-hop fans who have a few brain cells and no bling on their wrists. Shakespeare would spin in his grave, if we knew where he was buried. A ground-breaking virtuoso in the rap game.

Anyone who thought 2011 was disappointing for music needs to dig a bit deeper. Some major artists disappointed and complete unknowns blew up.
It's time to move on to 2012 though, so here's what I liked in 2011. If an artist had multiple, noteworthy releases I grouped them.
1. Washed Out - Within and Without
2. M83 - Hurry Up, We're Dreaming
3. Deafheaven - Roads to Judah
4. Bright Eyes - The People's Key
5. And So I Watch You From Afar - Gangs
6. James Blake - James Blake/Enough Thunder
7. Woods of Desolation - Torn Beyond Reason
8. Wolves in the Throne Room - Celestial Lineage
9. Iron & Wine - Kiss Each Other Clean
10. Nero - Welcome Reality
11. The Weeknd - House of Balloons/Thursday/Echoes of Silence

2011 was a fantastic year for music. I can tell because my top 10 list turned into a top 20. Then 25. And in it's final form, a top 30.
My favorite part of this year in music was its spread. On this list, you'll find a lot of electro-pop (DOM,Toro Y Moi, Modern Skirts), and on a similar level, a bunch of dream pop (Starfucker, Craft Spells, Memory Tapes). But 2011 also followed up a lot of what i loved a year ago- Beach Fossils, Real Estate, Male Bonding and Wavves were among the bands that set the tone for me in 2010. Joining the sound of a beach house basement was newcomer Cloud Nothings who had two solid releases, with a third expected in early 2012. And this was all pretty well rounded-out by Yuck, whose self-titled managed to become a best-of 90's indie rock.
Everything that was released in 2010 was pretty much rendered pointless once My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy arrived. …
