Last week we posted our editors’ picks for the Best Albums Of 2013, but the year-end roundups don’t end there! Between November and December, we posted two polls — one asking you to vote for the best LPs released between January and June of this year, and one with a poll for albums released between July and December. We’ve now compiled all the data, read all your comments and put together the 2013 edition of Idolator’s reader picks for the Best Albums Of The Year.
As with many things in life, it’s good to get a second opinion. Interestingly, three of the below albums — Tegan And Sara‘s Heartthrob, Pet Shop Boys‘ Electric and Selena Gomez‘s Stars Dance — where on the Idolator roundup we previously posted. Head below to see all the other albums you chose as your faves from ’13!
10. Paramore, Paramore (797 votes)
9. Tegan And Sara, Heartthrob (1,527 votes)
KW added: “These girls deserve it. They’ve worked so hard for the past decade – look at their evolution in music and writing! They make such inspirational role models – Heartthrob is the perfect example of how pop music doesn’t need to just be about sex or drugs or money or how that boy / girl doesn’t like you anymore. It is, like Sara says, intelligent pop music that catches you off-guard because you would never expect a song with that kind of beat to have such hard-hitting lyrics.”
8. Natalia Kills, Trouble (1,798 votes)
