Vampire Weekend
Vampire Weekend

2013’s first five months have given us so much great music that it’s hard to believe that over half of the year remains. And while it is rather difficult to keep up with the surplus of fantastic albums released weekly, with the summer upon us, now’s the time to perhaps dive into those albums you missed the first go around.

New albums from Kanye West, J. Cole, AlunaGeorge, The Fuck Buttons, Beyoncé, and a second installment from Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience are all due sometime this year, and are sure to shake up this list, here’s a look back at the top albums of the year thus far. From A$AP Rocky to Disclosure, these are the top albums from January to May.
