12 Great Comeback Albums Released in 2013

I hadn’t thought about it until I saw this blog entry from Amoeba Records, but 2013 featured a lot of really solid comeback albums.

Think about it:

David Bowie, The Next Day:  First, we were surprised that the album existed at all.  Then we were even more surprised at how good it was.

Paul McCartney, New:  Have you heard this album yet?  It’s Macca’s best in years.

Daft Punk, Random Access Memories:  How long had it been between albums?  And “Get Lucky” is going through your head right now, isn’t it?

My Bloody Valentine, mbv:  Do I even need to bring this one up?

Read about what other albums made Amoeba’s list.

    Unless I’m blind, I don’t believe the link is actually contained anywhere in the post: http://www.amoeba.com/blog/2013/12/pst/12-great-comeback-albums-released-in-2013.html

    I uh, had no idea Primal Scream released an album somehow. Beautiful Future didn’t even seem that long ago.

    I hesitate to call it a “comeback” per se because he’s been steadily releasing music all this time, but Gary Numan’s Splinter is just amazing. I was not a fan before, but he really got my attention this time around.
