I think my list might have to be divided into mix tape and trad album in order to keep it from being 25 records long.

Right now, I think I'm going to go with the album that I've never turned off half way trough, Yeezus, as #1. Ghost will be #2 most likely. The rest... Shit. Too much good shit.

As for my NON hip hop list, this is what I'm thinking for best of the year:

Black Bug- Reflecting the Light
Fuck Buttons- Slow focus
Botany- Lava Diviner
Flaming Lips- the Terror
and six other albums... lol.

I think I might publish my list on Blogger or something. I've got some excellent commentary to accompany my list, and explain my decisions.

I'm just asking because this has been a pretty ferocious year, and the competition has been heavy, so I have a hard time remembering all the great ones at once.

Wait... NO PUSHA-T EITHER? And what about MIA?

And... Oh my god, man, you even left out Earl.

Are you sure you don't need more time?
i don't really consider M.I.A. hip-hop (although there's some rapping on her album).

Pusha's album has too many songs i don't care about. i really like King Push, Hold On, Nosetalgia.. that's it.
well, there are a bunch of other good songs, but i never bump them anymore.

i like 12 Reasons to Die, but not as much as you guys, it's like a 7/10 to me.

Doris is really good lyrically, Earl's lazy delivery and most of the features make it hard for me to sit through.. i prefer his mixtape.

as far as non hip-hop goes, i like Sky Ferreira, MBV, Iceage, M.I.A., Deafheaven, David Bowie, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Lorde..

haven't heard any of those albums. anything you think i'd like?

man does Tuscan Leather suck.. it's like a 6 min song and Drake says absolutely nothing on it. who cares how much time you spend on an intro? instant skip. the next song is classic material though.

I think you'd like Botany. It's got a definite hip hop influence. Madlib and J-Dilla are two artists that really influenced its production. It's not a hip hop record, and is mostly instrumental, but it's sick as fuck... super laid back, chill, and epic all at the same time.

I don't know how you feel about punk, but since you listed Iceage on your non-hip hop list there's a chance you'll appreciate the sorely underrated Black Bug album I mentioned. I've been digging the shit out of it all year. It's the kind of album that keeps the world from spinning out of orbit. Hozac records nails it again.

And as for Fuck Buttons.... I don't know. It's a beast of an album. It's dark as fuck, and electronic, and kind of hellish, but also has some very lush moments. It's noise rock that sounds to me like Daft Punk and the Melvins getting into a colossal car accident, blood and metal everywhere. Also instrumental. It's worth listening to for anyone.

And the Lips... well, if you haven't already listened to the Terror and made a decision about it, this post probably isn't going to move you to do so. Top shelf fucking album though.

But you seriously need to listen to Doley. Why haven't you done so? Especially being such a fan of A$AP? Doley's mixtape shares production credits with Long.Live. And the kid ain't fucking around either.

One thing that pissed me off about a lot of the year's hip hop albums was that they tended to devolve into sentimental/overly serious R&B tinged bullshit halfway through, only to bounce back in the end. MNIMN and Nothing Was The Sane are two examples of this.

Doley doesn't let up, and raps like a fucking fiend throughout Just In Case, which is really one of the most consistently badass rap records of the year. I can't believe how badly it was overlooked.

Terror was my least favorite Lips album in a long long time. Just not feeling it.

Man, "You Song" should have been on ACID RAP.

And yet it's one of the better tracks on an album you placed above GFK, Earl, Pusha-T, Black Milk, Tree, Killah Priest, Deltron, Slum Village, and tons of others.

I love you louder, but you can be one fickle fair weather fan, bra

actually, i think it's one of the weakest. i don't hate it, it's just meh lyrically. the track with Jhene Aiko on the hook is absolutely the worst. what a snoozefest.

Furthest Thing, Worst Behavior, Too Much and Pound Cake are all song of the year material, in my opinion.. i also love Own It and Connect.

Well on a non hip hop note, you should check out some of the year's post punky rock type shit. I'm curious what you think will own the year from the greater indie genre.

And, Jesus, did i hear you correctly, NR? The Terror was a disappointment? What the hell?! Why am I like the only person who thinks that album is extraordinarily awesome? It's like the "well, we lost the fight" sequel to Soft Bulletin.

Happiness reflected upon through a lense stained by years of corporate evil, and a communal sense of self that has become tied completely to machines and app software.

Rolling Stones' "10 BEST MIXTAPES OF 2013"
http://www.rollingstone.com/music/li...d-rap-19691231

top 3 is solid.

i'm glad that Teefli and Young Thug got some recognition, too.

they forgot about PartyNextDoor though.

I liked about half of Indigoism. Didn't hold my attention all that long.

Summer Knights is great though.

I also really like that NYC Renaissance mixtape that Peter Rosenberg compiled this year.

"There is an over-representation of the criminal aspects of black youth culture (in music) from the videos and the records," he says. "Not all black kids out here are slinging cocaine, crack and heroin, and shooting at one another. What about the black kid who works at Haagen-Dazs in Brooklyn? He or she is not represented. What about the black kid who just goes to church with his grandmother on Sunday? I don't hear their story in any of these records! All I hear is bang, bang, shoot 'em up." - Bill Stephney (Public Enemy)

"The bottom line dictates their business (and) the people that run black music have liquidated a marketable criminal element to sell to the world. Thus 15 years ago, rappers rapped for the people, whereas today they rap and rep for their companies, because the money dictates the direction." - Chuck D

"Even with PE, the desire wasn't to be conscious per se; the idea was to make great records," he says. "We had a specific political concept, but the overriding thing was to make fantastic music. That's all it is at the end of the day." - Bill Stephney
