My Top 10 Albums of 2013 by The Blackout's Rhys Lewis
For every day of December, we're going to be bringing out the Top 10 albums or films of the year, chosen by someone who we think has excellent taste to show off.
Today it's the turn of Welsh party rockers The Blackout and their bassist Rhy Lewis. What do you make of his picks?
The Blackout - Start The Party
"First on the list is obviously us; The Blackout. Probably the happiest/ most positive album we’ve ever released. A good album for good times."
Bring Me The Horizon - Sempiternal
"Album by album they grow better as song writers. Finally they’ve created the crossover album that I hoped they would. They still retain their edge and identity when doing so."
Kings Of Leon - Mechanical Bull
"Still consistently releasing great album after great album. This hasn’t been as big as their previous efforts commercially; but it’s still one of their best to date."
Nine Inch Nails - Hesitation Marks
"Great to see (hear) Trent Reznor back with his poignantly sombre band after a couple of years of composing for film and winning Oscars. The’ve gone back to their roots with less guitars/live drums and more synths, still managing to pack a punch after all these years."
