In my opinion 2013 has been an incredible year for music. For proof of that I need look no further than this post, which honours 20 albums that were released this year that I thoroughly enjoyed but didn't quite have enough to make my Official Top 50. When I see some of the albums on here I seriously can't believe that there were 50 better that came out this year. Most if not all of these albums are 8/10 in my opinion (and there were many beyond this 20 that I liked this year too). All these albums are absolutely worth your time if you come across them and I eagerly await the next release by all of these artists, knowing full well that they all have the quality to release something that could crack my top 50 next time.
I'd like to send my honourable mention salute to these 20 albums, presented in alphabetical order by artist:
