Putting this album list together, we realised just how utterly brilliant 2013 has truly been for music.

These are our 50 favourite albums of the year, and everything on this list is basically, incredible. The albums here have been played in our office, our homes and during that long, sweaty commute between the two for months on end. It is thanks to these albums that we remained sane in 2013.

One of the best things about our 50 favourite albums, is the sheer range of genres that have excelled over the past 12 months. From the indie sounds of Arctic Monkeys and Jagwar Ma to the pop tunes of St Lucia and Chvrches, to the rock of Queens Of The Stone Age and the electronic majesty of Disclosure and Toro Y Moi - every box has been ticked this year.

Check out our 50 favourite albums of 2013 here. We're fairly sure you'll agree, that this year has been awesome. See you in 2014.
