Favorite Albums of 2013Random Access Memories

"The idea was really having this desire for live drums, as well as questioning, really, why and what is the magic in samples? It occurred to us it’s probably a collection of so many different parameters; of amazing performances, the studio, the place it was recorded, the performers, the craft, the hardware, recording engineers, mixing engineers, the whole production process of these records that took a lot of effort and time to make back then.";Thomas Bangalter

Favorite Albums of 2012→Night Vision

"Speaking of technology influencing the way bands write and record, I think it’s important to point out that we embrace everything, and on ‘Night Visions,’ we did everything";Dan Reynolds

Favorite Albums of 2012→#3

"People were probably listening to us missing their lost love, and wanting to slit their wrists,but this is a record that you’ll be able to play in pubs and clubs. We’re loud and proud about what we do now!";Danny O’Donoghue

Favorite Albums of 2012→Junk of the heart 

"There’s quite a few different instruments we’ve not used before - different kinds of textures, but still with the roots of the band. Rather than being a band just playing our guitars in a room, we built the tracks up and added more layers. We wanted to make it more of a future-sounding record than looking back to the past.";Luke Pritchard

Favorite Albums of 2012→Red

"All the different emotions that are written about on this album are all pretty much about the kind of tumultuous, crazy, insane, intense, semi-toxic relationships that I’ve experienced in the last two years. All those emotions spanning from intense love, intense frustration, jealousy, confusion, all of that  in my mind, all those emotions are red. You know, there’s nothing in between. There’s nothing beige about any of those feelings.";Taylor Swift

Favorite Albums of 2012→Battle Born

"This album is a celebration … now we’re beyond all that worry, and now it’s a celebration; this is what we are, we are from here, we’re proud of it, this is the music that we like, here you go,It’s a celebration of music, and the impact that it’s had on us, and that we get to do this. I mean, it’s a silly cliché to say, but it’s a dream come true. It’s a miracle to get to do this.";Brandon Flowers

Favorite Albums of 2012Some Nights

"There’s always been some sort of controversy within every album that I’ve ever made and Some Nights was the first where I didn’t have that,I just had a group of people who believed in the songs. I didn’t have to battle against something. I usually try to find something to battle against.”;Nate Ruess

Favorite Albums of 2012Channel Orange

"I wrote to keep myself busy and sane. I wanted to create worlds that were rosier than mine. I tried to channel overwhelming emotions.";Frank Ocean

Favorite Albums of 2012→El Camino 

"You can make a difficult, eccentric, bizarre indie album if you are worried about maintaining cred, or you can make the same album you made before if you’re worried about alienating your audience— or you can just try to make a record that you think people will like and that you like, too. We owe it to our fans to make something that we’re really proud of.";Patrick Carney

Favorite Albums of 2012→ Born to Die

"I think it’s beautiful. I think it’s gorgeous. This album is my self in song form. So if they sort of sound like everything fits perfectly together, it’s because it does. There is nothing altered, nothing compromised, they are perfectly me. For better or worse, it’s like a person in song and video form.";Lana Del Rey
