Arctic Monkeys @ ACL 2013 (more by Tim Griffin)
Arctic Monkeys

Kind of like MOJO's laddish slightly younger brother who went to college during '90s Britpop, UK monthly Q Magazine has time for new music but still pays attention to older artists as well. Their new issue -- with Robbie Williams on the cover -- doles out its Top 50 Albums of the Year (and other 2013 Q Awards). Topping the list is Arctic Monkeys' fifth album, AM.

Arctic Monkeys will be back in North America in early 2014, playing NYC at Madison Square Garden on February 8 with Deerhunter. Tickets are still available.

The entire Q Mag Top 50 LP list below...

I love that they didn't include Arcade Fire.

Wow! Popular music continues to get worse every year. No Nick Cave but they include Vampire Weekend and Haim? Who votes, 12 year olds?

dammit Snow Patrol. a band that knows how to crank out some pretty decent bangers should know better than to remove a key element (the groove!) from a song they are covering. thumbs down.
