We recently released the staff's 15 most anticipated music releases from July till the end of the year, and it got me thinking about my own anticipated list for the entirety of 2013 and YOURS as well.
Because it's tough to predict what will come out later in the year, last year we split the "Highlighting" yearly feature into 2 parts -- the first half of the year and the second half. But it's still tough to tell what will come out in which month because releases are always shifting, being delayed, etc.
I decided to personally compile a list of 15 of this year's releases in order from most anticipated (No. 1) on down to the least--but still anticipated, mind you (No. 15). I know many of these are out already, so I went back to the lists I compiled earlier this year when we were voting for the feature -- and before hearing most of them -- and did a quick adjusting of my level of anticipation (meaning: I had two separate lists, so I combined them).
This list does NOT reflect what I thought of how the end product turned out, but it ultimately reflects how much I was/am still looking forward to each release this year.
Please feel free to join in and post YOUR 15 in order in the comments below! :)
