Best Electronic Albums of 2013

image by David Pelham
It has become increasingly difficult to compile lists like these in recent years for one simple reason: The term "electronic" is more or less nonfunctioning as a useful label or even broad categorization. Most everything under the sun is electronic. The real chore is discerning what merits the category and what doesn't. It's a highly subjective task, and there are several albums that could have easily made this list but didn't for that reason. I'll probably be making a secondary post mentioning my "off-topic" entries.

It should be noted that none of the entries from the ambient list are included on this list. Check the ambient list if you're wanting more stuff in that vein.

Just below is a playlist of songs culled from this list's entries.
