What a fantastic response from you, our readers -- indeed it has been a good year for new music!
It wasn't easy to take all of the thoughtful suggestions and boil them down to a select 15, but we did it. To the right, the recordings are listed and ready for your consideration.
You can vote between now and December 31, 2013 at midnight, when the winner will be declared and a new year of new music begins.
So, cast your votes, mobilize your fans, persuade the cynics, convince the indifferent, wake up the musical sleepers .... and have fun!
