Sky Box Sounds vol. 14 | Musical Year in Review 2013

It's that time of year again for the annual Musical Year in Review, a tradition that began last year that I intend to continue. Musically, it's been quite a phenomenal year for so many of my favorite genres and it was really hard choosing favorites. Looking back, there are so many great, heavy rotation albums that I didn't do reviews on.

Honestly, this list-or series of list rather-took me almost 2 months to dig through archives, think about, and recall this year in music to complete it.  It's a little different from last year's brief review, at least in comparison, but I certainly hope all of you enjoy the mix nonetheless!
