Last month we presented you with the first part of Idolator’s reader’s poll on the best albums of 2013 — one where we had you vote on your favorite releases from January through June. Now it’s time for part two, where you have free reign to help determine which records that hit masses between July and December are the best. There are plenty to choose from, so without further adieu, hop below and get to it. As usual, when all is said and done, we’ll round up what Idolator readers deem to be their 10 favorite records from 2013.
Note: As this is a two-part poll, it’s also a two-part process. Once you vote, we also want you to leave your thoughts in the comments box below on why you chose that particular album. We’ll be reading all of your feedback and including some of the comments in our final writeup containing your top selections for the Best Albums Of 2013.
So vote below, then let us know why your pick deserves to be in our year-end roundup of the year’s best!
