       You guys want to read another 'best albums of the year' list that you don't agree with as much as I want to try to listen to every big name album of the year in one day. Instead, here's a list of some of the established bands who released albums this year that had fantastic tracks you should check out because they're all awesomely addictive.
"Shot At the Night" The Killers (they didn't break up and this video's adorable; Direct Hits)
"(Everything Is) Debatable" Hellogoodbye (Everything Is Debatable)
"The Giving Tree" Plain White T's (his vocals are so satisfying; Should've Gone to Bed EP)
"XO" Beyoncé (I'm pretty sure Beyoncé could rule the world and no one would complain; Beyoncé)
"Mirrors" Justin Timberlake (Comeback of the Year; The 20/20 Experience)
"John Doe" B.o.B ft Priscilla (Underground Luxury)
"Story of My Life" One Direction (I wish I didn't like this song; Midnight Memories)
"I Like It" We The Kings (they're just awesome and Somewhere Somehow is fun)
"A Tribe Called Red" Angel Haze (Dirty Gold)
"Counting Stars" OneRepublic (Native)
"Brand New Day" Kodaline (you should know about them by now; In A Perfect World)
"Out of My League" Fitz and The Tantrums (So. Fucking. Amazing. Live. See them; More Than Just A Dream)
"This Is Gospel" Panic! At the Disco (because Too Weird To Live, Too Rare to Die! was perfect)
"Slow It Down" The Goo Goo Dolls (Magnetic)
"Run" The Maine (still have yet to hear a bad album from them; they're pretty great. Forever Halloween)
"Bride & Groom" The Airborne Toxic Event (one of their best but this band's always perfect; Such Hot Blood)
"All Wash Out" Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes (they performed this in the rain and it was magical; Here)
"Polaroid Picture" Frank Turner (this song's almost as perfect as Turner is; Tape Deck Heart)
"Say Say" Youngblood Hawke (they're 'established' in my eyes; Wake Up)
"Wrecking Ball" Miley Cyrus ("Wrecking Ball" was art and heartbreaking, "Adore You" is childish and attention 
      seeking, but you know you can't look back at 2013 without Cyrus; Bangerz [this is the only album you don't 
      need to look at from this list. I don't have it and won't ask you to get it])
       Check these out, get the albums (or at least the tracks you like) and check back later for another end of the year post.
