My Top Albums 2013 | Part 1

So this post is a bit of a different one to normal but I've really been obsessing over music recently so I thought I would start a little thing & share with you my favourite albums I've been listening to in 2013 - both old and new. As you may have noticed this says part 1 I plan to finish part two at the end of the year...If I remember. 

Bastille - Bad Blood

I love this album so much, its very rare for me to find an album in which I love all of the songs, so I was pleasantly surprised by it. This has been played on a loop so many times now & I am still no where close to being sick of it. Huge fan of Bastille, can't wait to see what new stuff they come up with.

Les Miserables Movie Soundtrack

It's no secret that I love musicals and Les Miserables was no exception, in fact I loved the film so much that I had to instantly download the soundtrack. My favourite tracks include: On My Own, One Day More, A Heart Full of Love & Dreamed a Dream. This album has been the perfect accompaniment for revision & spring cleaning and is of course the best to sing along to.

Mumford & Sons - Babel

I love Mumford & Sons! I love this album! I will say however in comparison to the epic first album of theirs its slightly disappointing but as an album on its own its awesome, and has some really great songs. Good job boys!

Michael Buble - To Be Loved

I love Michael Buble and for Christmas I was lucky enough to receive tickets to see him live *in less than two weeks eeee* so of course I had to download his most recent album. I love it! Beautiful Day is without a doubt my favourite track. So excited to see him perform some of the songs.

My Chemical Romance - The Black Parade

Obviously this isn't a new album but when I heard the news that My Chemical Romance had split up I wanted to give their old stuff a listen and it reminded why I loved them so much. The Black Parade was always my favourite album of theirs & whenever I listen to this I feel very nostalgic about my 15 year old emo days haha.

Kodaline - In a Perfect World

Kodaline are a somewhat new discovery for me & boy I'm glad I've found them, this album for me is perfect, like Bad Blood there isn't a song I don't like. Its been played constantly the past few days. For me its a perfect album for the summer. I expect very big things from the group.

The Great Gatsby Movie Soundtrack 

It may come as a shock to you that I still haven't seen the film, I have been listening to the soundtrack though and I love it, particularly Lana Del Ray, Florence & the Machine & Beyonce's inputs. Such a great album & I look forward to eventually seeing the film.

These are the albums I've been listening too most in 2013 so far.
