The 51 Best Albums Of 2013 - What Made Your List?

December 30th, 2013 6:00pm EST

Ranking the very best albums of any year is incredibly difficult; there are always misses. 2013 was filled with some triumphant musical moments, though not all of their parent albums were necessarily ‘worthy’ of being considered the best of the year. Because of various factors, this list has its surprises and like any album reviewed, its triumphs and flaws. One thing’s for sure – the top ten to fifteen albums are pretty close to the cream of the crop from my perspective. Here are the 50 (+1) best albums of 2013!

1) Vampire Weekend - Modern Vampires of the City

25 Best R&B Albums Of 2013

December 27th, 2013 6:30pm EST
Beyonce
It truly saddens me to see R&B, a personal favorite style of music, in a state of uncertainty.  2013 found the numbers of R&B down considerably, a trend that is consistent year in and year out. Save for a select few commercial bright spots (led by an unexpected Beyoncé album), R&B only dented the charts. Even so, finding 25 albums with some significance wasn’t difficult to do.  Sure, some of the lowest ranked albums have their flaws, but each has some reason for being selected.  Enjoy!

1) Janelle Monáe - The Electric Lady
Bad Boy

Amy Winehouse
Amy Winehouse stole the show at the 50th Grammy Awards, winning five top honors. Kanye West was nominated for eight awards and went home with four prizes, including Rap Album, Rap Performance and Rap Song; Bruce Springsteen picked up three, including Best Rock Song. The White Stripes, Justin Timberlake and Mary J. Blige all won two.

But the night was dominated by Winehouse, who picked up all but one of the awards she was nominated for - Record of the Year for Rehab; Album of the Year for Back to Black; Best New Artist; Best Pop Vocal Album for Back to Black; Song of the Year for Rehab;...

Listen To Citizen Cope's Latest Single, "Back Together"

September 26th, 2006 1:01pm EDT
Citizen Cope
"When I was a kid, I was a listener," says Clarence Greenwood, a.k.a. Citizen Cope. "Music was something coming out of a radio or off a record, something that made me feel these things I couldn't explain. It was magical to me, and I thought it was something you had to be ordained with."

What's clear when you listen to Cope's own music now, years after he sat transfixed in front of his stereo speakers, is that he *is* ordained. Or touched. Or blessed. Or however you want to say it: The man has the gift.

It's never been more evident as on "Every Waking Moment," his third album (seco...

Check Out "Dream," The First Single From Alice Smith's Soulful Debut, "For Lovers, Dreamers, and Me"

July 11th, 2006 5:27pm EDT
Alice Smith
Alice Smith is one of those extraordinarily rare artists who simply cannot be categorized. Her commanding, 4-octave voice, dripping with soulful emotion, brings to mind such historic and iconoclastic artists as Annie Lennox, Dinah Washington, Sade and Billie Holiday. She can hopscotch genres like a girl skipping stones, slipping and sliding through pop, jazz, soul, rock and even a hint of Broadway.

VIBE Magazine (March 2006) says, ""Passionate soundscapes that evoke Fiona Apple's finest material while showcasing her penchant for approaching pop rock with the conviction of a bluesy sou...
