    So, it’s that time of year again, folks. Let me tellllll you. 2013 was the year of wrecking balls, foam fingers, and the rise and fall of Miley Cyrus. Fortunately, she did not make my top 10 albums of 2013. There have been some other AMAZING albums and music moments this year that require a lot less brain-washing/erasing and more rockin’ tunes.
