NME names its Top 50 LPs & tracks of 2013 (guess who’s #1?)

NME

UK music weekly NME has just published its end-of-year issue, with their Top 50 LPs and Tracks of 2013. As for the albums list, we’ll let you read on to find out what their #1 pick is, but it might just be the one NME called “absolutely and unarguably the most incredible album of [said band’s] career” and “the greatest record of the last decade.” It’s not Palma Violets, who were last year’s Track of the Year, as their debut LP came in at #32 on the list.

As for tracks, their single of the year is a pretty obvious (certainly ubiquitous) choice. Check out the full lists of NME‘s Top 50 LPs and Tracks below…
