Albums of 2013

As usual Jason at has asked for everyone's twenty favourite albums of the year so here are mine. Thalia Zedek goes first due to more emotional content than other music of similar excellence. Also honourable mention for two five song CD EPs "Last Days of Butterfly" by Stranger Son and "The Ghost List" by Girls Against Boys and the 6 track "Stories" by Chris Brokaw. I could almost be living in the 1990s.
