We’re giving one of you the top 10 from our list on vinyl, so if you haven’t commented on that post with your 2013 favorite(s) go do that and you’ll be eligible to win. Also this week we listed Top 25 Music Videos Of 2013 So Far and the 10 Best Arcade Fire Songs. We spoke with Smith Westerns, the Lonely Island, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., Beacon, and Disclosure, who earned Album Of The Week honors. We celebrated 20 years of Pottymouth and Recipe For Hate, and 10 years of Hail To The Thief. We ranked Low’s discography, compiled a Monthly Mix, and named Krill a Band To Watch. We saw Daft Punk without their helmets and welcomed back Nine Inch Nails. Scroll down to the highest and lowest rated responses to all of this exciting content!

THIS WEEK’S 10 HIGHEST RATED COMMENTS

#10 KiDCHAIR | Jun 4th Score:9

I have to say…Savages hasn’t really done it for me. I enjoy it, but it gets pretty monotoned after awhile. I’m kind of surprised it gets so much attention.

a) we did not take the picture, it was already on the internet. b) we are not label mates with daft punk. We are on a completely different label. Please check facts!

“Intervention” is an amazingly underrated song. My body shivers when I hear the organ pipes that open the track.

THIS WEEK’S 5 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

#5 IanisRad | Jun 6th Score:-4

A) Anyone who is a real fan of Daft Punk would know that they wouldn’t want their photo publicized therefor it’s disrespecting their wishes to perpetuate that via your Facebook page. B) You obviously did this for attention. C) I wont listen to any music produced by The Knocks going forward because it’s obviously created by two people who care more about their level of popularity and fame then their level of art.

Graham Hebert | May 31st Score:-5

Interesting how this cover art is more fascinating and thought-provoking than some of the most Storm Thorgerson-esque albums covers out there. Smart design.

Why don’t you guys stick to making those awful, arbitrary “Worst to Best” lists?

Yikes, this has been a horrible year for music so far. Most of these are fine, but nothing great.

THIS WEEK’S EDITOR’S CHOICE (SCOTT)

raptor jesus | Jun 3rd Score:1

Caught the tail end of the stream and it was sounding really great! Except that part where they sampled what sounded like my boss asking me take off my headphones?

Anybody else hear that?
