spin, readers' choice, best album of the year

Queens of the Stone Age’s …Like Clockwork! The sixth full-length from the desert-dwelling hard-rock kings dominated the Readers’ Choice poll for Best Album of 2013. Haim’s Days Are Gone and Arctic Monkeys’ AM tied for second place, while the National’s Trouble Will Find Me finished third. Rounding out the top tier? Kanye West’s Yeezus (a record the SPIN editors are very fond of) and Arcade Fire’s Reflektor.
