Top 10 Albums of the Year

December 26, 2013
By MATTHEW PARRISH - Sun-Gazette Correspondent , Williamsport Sun-Gazette

2013 was the year of "Get Lucky." Daft Punk's disco jam hit No. 1 in 28 countries and sold more than 7.3 million copies, bringing the French duo back to the mainstream and inspiring a horde of covers that included ones by U2 and, no joke, the Russian police choir (If you haven't seen it, you have to find it on YouTube). It wasn't, however, the year of "Random Access Memories," the woefully one-dimensional album that spawned the infectious single. Sometimes when I was listening to "R.A.M.," I thought, much like Sascha Frere-Jones of The New Yorker, this is "some of the worst music I've ever heard." It definitely has its champions, count The Telegraph and Entertainment Weekly among them, but you won't find it on my list.
