Paramore is my #1. It's the album I've enjoyed the most this year, and it's been spinning in my car CD player more than anything else in 2013.

Then we got:

The National - Trouble Will Find Me
The Strokes - Comedown Machine
Tegan and Sara - Heartthrob
Kanye West - Yeezus
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Mosquito
Vampire Weekend - Modern Vampires...
Atoms for Peace - AMOK
The Replacements - Songs for Slim EP
Joy Formidable - Wolf's Law
Foxygen - ...21st Century Ambassadors
Justin Timberlake - 20/20 Experience
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Specter at the Feast
Jim James - Region of Light and Sound of God

Song of the year is Vampire Weekend's "Step".

The song of the summer is Miley's "We Can't Stop".

The older, non-2013 album that I've listened to the most this year is Belle & Sebastian's If You're Feeling Sinister.

And I can't fucking wait to hear the new Arctic Monkeys, Jay-Z, Okkervil River, Arcade Fire, U2, Janelle Monae.

And hopefully Gaga can get her shit together and finally release ARTPOP.

Your lists overlap everything I'd type here, now that Foals has been mentioned.

Trouble Will Find Me is my clear favorite, MBV running second and then a few more.

Odd that only one person has listed the David Bowie, especially considering the response it got here.

Honestly there's nothing I've heard this year that tops my favs from last year (Cat Power, Fiona, Passion Pit) and I thought 2012 was a little weak.

I guess it would be JT at this point, then Nick Cave.

The single best piece of new music I've heard this year was the as-yet unreleased song that Spiritualized opened with when I saw them, tentatively titled "The Road (Let's Go)".

In a year Phoenix and YYYs released albums, it's sad to not see them on any lists. Not surprising since both albums were disappointments, but yeah.

Or am I misreading or misunderstanding something?

No, just a Cobblerstanding.

I'm pretty disappointed by the Phoenix as well. The YYYs will never top It's Blitz anyway so I wasn't expecting much there.
