I know I say this every year but….what a year 2013 was! We had a great bit of material up on the site for you fine readers this year. It was especially a great year for the TWS Interview world. We interviewed everyone from an Oscar Award winning screenwriter to the original April O’Neil from the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. From new school filmmakers making movies about YouTube and shit demons, to legendary filmmakers who have credited such amazing films involving everything from punk rock in Mormon country, Leonard Cohen, and the acclaimed Fokker series. We even spoke with writers who have touched on everything from the acclaimed Chelsea Hotel during the 80’s and 90’s, to the obsessive compulsions of Alfred Hitchcock. Yes, we indulged ourselves in the film and literary world quite immensely this year. But, one of our main focuses will always be on music. This is our bread, and the film and literary world is our butter. We wouldn’t be worth a damn if it weren’t for so many fine folks out there spilling their guts through microphones in bedroom closets or glamorous studios with excellent fruit assortments. Yes, we thrive to honor the masters of the song.
And it was another great year for music in 2013. Things jumped off pretty quick, with many of the albums in our top ten being released in the first quarter of the year alone. 2013 happens to be one of the most peculiar years Trainwreck’d Society has ever tallied. We have many folks returning from years past, some debut acts, even a couple of A-List celebrities with some great pipes and strumming abilities. I also broke one of the unspoken laws of year end lists, and included a film soundtrack that was simply too delightful to pass up. Hip hop music had it’s strongest showing yet to add to the peculiarity. It goes without saying, that this is one of the most diverse lists we have had to date. So here it is folks! I present to you Trainwreck’d Society’s Top 37 1/2 Albums of 2013.
