This was a pretty insane year for me to say the least. A lot of shit went down that I don't think anyone could really prepare for. But as always, music was there for me to help soothe the soul and get me through the tough times. It also was there for me to help celebrate the wonderfully awesome amazing times that I spent with my friends. That connection that we all have with music speaks volumes and it truly does bring us together.
So with all that said, I give you my Top 20 of 2013. Not all of these albums are necessarily the best of the best, and I'm sure I am overlooking some other great albums, but what it all boils down to is how these made me feel. And shit, they made me feel goooooood! Have a great holiday season y'all. I'll see ya in front of the soundboard, just to the right, in 2014!!!
