Isle Of Deserted Pop Stars' Top 50 Albums Of The Year

For the first time on the Isle, I've decided to add my list of my Top 50 new albums released in 2013.  I have both a top 15 and then 35 other albums I loved this year.  Both the top 15 and then the bottom 35 are in alphabetical order, as ordering them is near impossible.  All of these albums resonated with me in one way or another over the year.  I figured fans of the Isle might be interested in checking them out, as I'm sure many visitors have the same taste as I do, if this blog is any indication.  Here's hoping none of these artists become "deserted" in years to come.  ;) It's not likely any of them will. Feel free to sample them all - links to videos are in the album titles.  Happy holidays!
