December 30th, 2013 6:00pm EST
Daft Punk
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!

Ranking favorites from throughout the year is one of the most time-consuming and arduous things to do.  All of the rap songs on this particular list of rap songs from 2013 all stood out to me in some regard.  Are they ordered correctly – most likely not.  Is there complete analysis of each provided below or even a sound reason why they were selected… um…well now… Basically, provided is a statement of a thought, a reaction, or possibly a reason why I though each song was special.

The 10 Most Disappointing Albums of 2013

December 26th, 2013 11:00am EST
Britney Jean
Throughout 2013, I’ve had the opportunity to review lots of albums.  Some were extremely special (Vampire Weekend, Modern Vampires of the City among ‘em), while others were D-I-S-A-P-P-O-I-N-T-I-N-G. Not to be a negative noodle or kill anyone’s happy vibe, but sometimes artists lay an egg… a really rotten one.   Not every album here is just awful, but contextually, they didn’t quite live up to the hype.  Some were rotten eggs though!

Keeping it short and sweet, Britney Spears at times lacked fierceness on Britney Jean.  “Work B*tch” was great and “Perfume”...

Five Music Takeaways from 2013

December 15th, 2013 1:00pm EST
The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2
Ah, there is always plenty to write about the music industry and the number of trends that come and go, as well as those remaining constant.  2013 was another interesting year, whether merely for its pleasant surprises or its disappointments.  Many observations will and can be made of the year musically and pop-culturally in regards to its artists.  While my inner musical nerdy side wishes that I could nitpick and analyze every facet microscopically, I’ll rely on a Childish Gambino rhyme to express why that’s not possible: “Ain’t nobody got time for that!” What I do have time for is to shar...

Thoughts On The 56th Annual Grammy Nominations

December 9th, 2013 8:50pm EST
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
The Grammys are like a musician’s Super Bowl, even if the nominations and victorious artists are flawed.  I won’t lie to you, I complain every year that someone won a Grammy that didn’t deserve it while someone else was snubbed. Just last year, during the 55th Annual Grammys, I lobbied hard for Frank Ocean (looking back, I have reservations now) while Mumford & Sons walked out with the Album of the Year trophy.  The year that Taylor Swift won for Fearless, my girl Beyoncé was on a roll until the coveted Album of the Year award was read.  You get my position though! This year,  I find myself...

Justin Timberlake
Pop superstar Justin Timberlake still harbours dreams of conquering the country music industry, insisting the genre was as influential for him growing up in Tennessee as soul and rock music.

Justin Timberlake was named one of GQ magazine's Men of the Year for 2013, and the singer/actor has landed one of five different covers for the annual issue; and, surprisingly, the 32-year-old tells the magazine that he's "not cool."

Justin says if he was cool he probably wouldn't be famous or successful.

"Listen, I'm not cool. Being cool is about keeping your blood pressure steady. So no. Don't be cool. Be passionate. Be dedicated. Be tenacious. Be uncompromising. Be pissed. Be happy. Be sad," he says.
