Kotaku's Favorite Albums from 2013

How is this [video game] news?

The release this year of Kinja, our new publishing platform, also saw the return of Kotaku Soundtrack, a happy little diversion we sometimes indulge in where we share the music that we're listening to, whether that be for work, for gaming or, if we're bold, for pleasure.

Since the feature is a little bit of fun, we figured we'd give it a little bit of a roundup, the contributing Kotaku staffers sitting down and picking out our favourite albums from 2013.
