2013 in Review

Music

This really was a tough one. So much great stuff this year – both discovered and newly released. Turisas released the quirky but still good ‘2013’. Great though it was, it was a little bit of a let down after ‘Stand Up And Fight’. In the end, though, it came down to two albums – the prog-tastic ‘The Theory of Everything’ by Ayreon and ‘Unsung Heroes’ by Ensiferum. Two entirely different styles and – frankly – I just can’t say that one pipped the other to the post. I’ve been listening to them both equally. So they both win 🙂
 

 

 

 

Movies

Not difficult at all. In a year full of utter dreck, Life of Pi, Les Miserables, Pacific Rim and Cloud Atlas stand head and shoulders above the rest. And there was a clear winner this time. Cloud Atlas just had EVERYTHING.

Books

There were a stupid number of awesome things in this category. Sadly, Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep doesn’t make it in the list as I haven’t finished it yet. But Cormac McCarthy’s ‘All the Pretty Horses’ stands out above everything so tall as to make it a moot point anyway.

 

So there we have it.
