Best Albums of the Year: 2014
Another year, another handful of albums to listen to. Here's my ranking, from 10 to 1.
Everything Will Be Alright In The End
Explain to me how Weezer can make a good album after 18 years of garbage? Whatever, this one is great seems to be a long apology to fans for all the crap they've been doing since Pinkerton.
This Is The Third Album of a Band Called Adebisi Shank
Adebisi Shank gets a little smoother and electronic.
Shadows of the Dying Sun
I don't know enough about metal to talk about this album, but I certainly enjoy listening to it.
Son of Aurelius
Under a Western Sun
The Flesh Prevails
Ditto, again. Metal rock block!
Gemini, Her Majesty
Turns out my favorite band of all time decided they weren't quite ready to stay retired. For the first time since Progress (I think), the band has recorded a record that doesn't try to immitate their live show. Instead, Gemini is a simpler, but more varied album that the increasingly complicated albums their tried to end their career with the first time.
Run the Jewels
Run the Jewels 2
Back to back appearances by Mike and El-P.
Home, Like Noplace Is There
Best emo album this year or best emo album ever?
Haters gonna hate.
The Next Four Years
It took 4 years, but it's finally here!
