2012 is almost over, so it's time to look ahead to a promising New Year. Specifically, what albums should we be expecting in 2013? It might be a great, eclectic year in rock music, with everyone from Arcade Fire to Queens of the Stone Age unleashing new discs. I decided to put together a list of albums I'm hoping to hear in 2013, and while some of them are far from certain -- Tool have been teasing us with the follow-up to 10,000 Days for what seems like 10,000 days -- I'm giddy over the possibilities. Can 2013 be here already?
