Jolly - The Audio Guide To Happiness (Part 2) One of my favorit bands that I discovered in 2013. Saw them live after reading about them and because they played before Riverside. Maybe I'm to naïve, but I really get happy after listening to part 1 & 2 of TAGTH.
Dream Theater - Dream Theater A stronger album than A Dramatic Turn. With some really great songs and finally a instrumental (and what a great one!).
Haken - The Mountain Didn't know this band until I read about them and say the video for "The Cockroachking". I was sold after that!
Ghost B.C. - Infestissumam A differend sounding album than Opus Eponymous, but still really good. Year Zero is one of the stronger songs.
Devin Townsend - The Retinal Circus The list is CD only. But I couldn't let this release out of my list. The best live DVD I have ever seen from an artist. I would have put it in my top 3 releases in 2013 if I didn't meant this list to be a top 10 album releases.
