So with any awards situation, there will be albums left out. I KNOW that I missed some, but for those that I listened to, these really stand out. I would have reviewed probably all of these but well, shit happens. R&B does deserve much more attention from us especially after a year like this one where great music abounds. So I’ll work on that for 2014. As far as 2013, these are the albums that really held my attention.
