It's mid-April: Do you already feel behind on the year's top rock records? Allow me to help. I looked back through the first few months of 2013 and, much to my delight, discovered that we've already had several strong releases. For instance, the soundtrack to a documentary. Also, two albums from legendary singers who are fronting new bands. And don't forget that there have been strong albums from two groups who got their start little more than a decade ago. All told, I found seven albums that you really should check out if you haven't already.
