Long time no see. I’ve been thinking of compiling a list of my favorite albums in 2013. I must admit that I didn’t listen to many albums this year, especially Myanmar albums. I think I only bought five albums this year – well, four albums and one album from online – and I only listened to three or four albums. I didn’t even download many Myanmar albums this year either.
Anyway, here are my favorite albums for this year. Please note that this list is based on what I’ve listened so far so some albums have not been added to this list yet, like Bunny Phyoe’s second album and Thein Linn Soe’s album.
1. Chill Session – Weed Tay Ta (Extraordinary) (၀ိေသသ)
I have to say this is the BEST album of 2013. I like all the songs and so it’s difficult to choose a favorite. The actual album was expensive as it cost 2,600 kyats but it was still worth it. You can buy this album at Myanmar Music Store for 1,800 kyats only.
2. Wanted – Ta Yauk Ta Nay Yar (Everyone from Different Places) (တစ္ေယာက္တစ္ေနရာ)
3. Snare – Ba Gyi Phyoe and U Nay Win (ဘႀကီးျဖိဳးႏွင့္ ဦးေန၀င္း)
4. Ar-T – Candy
If you like electro and r&b music, Ar-T is the answer for you. To tell the truth, I’m not too big of a fan of electro music but his songs are good. My favorite song is Eain Mat Lay (Dream). It’s a remake of an old song composed by Saung Oo Hlaing and is also the album title of Moet Moet’s second album, but most of the lyrics are different.
5. Ni Ni Khin Zaw – Mario
Okay, I didn’t buy her album and I downloaded it because I was not a big fan of this singer. But, after watching the Sea Games opening ceremony, I became her fan so I have been listening to her songs. I still haven’t chosen a favorite yet.
