Bill Calahan's album Dream River has topped MOJO magazine's Best Albums of 2013 list which is in the new year-end issue. Seems about right for a magazine that had both Paul McCartney on the cover of one issue this year and The Beatles on another (also the Stones, Dylan, Pink Floyd, Johnny Marr). Their #2 was a bit of a surprise, at least to me. The Arcade Fire's Reflektor only came in at #18 but they can just be happy with being the issue's cover stars. Check out that cover -- and the entire Top 50 list - below...
