Well done Beyoncé for becoming a mother, but did little baby Ivy Blue really need to make a vocal contribution on the final track? Did we really need another duet between you and your darling husband, Jay-Z, to show us how “Drunk in Love” the two of you are? Did I really just hear you utter the line “Can you lick my skittles?” on the track “Blow”?

The year is coming to an end and its time to have a look back at 2013's greatest albums. Here are 20 of my personal favourites.
20. Incitare – Volto!
Prog rock/jazz fusion album, featuring Danny Carey - the drummer from Prog metal band, Tool. Its pretentious, instrumental show-offery but I love it nonetheless.
Favourite tracks: “Drumbeaux”, “Tocino”
Shady’s back, bringing with him hyper-speed flows and brilliantly entertaining wordplay. The legend reaffirms his position as king of rap - or should I say, “rap god”.
Favourite tracks: “Love Game (feat. Kendrick Lamar)”, “Evil Twin”
