I’m not sure what I think about 2014 musically.  There were some great albums, but I never felt overwhelmed trying to keep up with the greatness like I did in 2013.  That could mean it was a down year or it could mean I’m just getting old and exploring less music.  Nevertheless, here are my 15 favorite.

15. YG | My Krazy Life

14. Flying Lotus | You’re Dead

13. Ryan Adams | Ryan Adams

12. Cloud Nothings | Here and Nowhere Else

11. Parquet Courts | Sunbathing Animal

10. Caribou | Our Love

09. Shabazz Palaces | Lese Majesty

08. Real Estate | Atlas

07. Mac Demarco | Salad Days

06. Todd Terje | It’s Album Time

05. The War on Drugs | Lost in the Dream

04. Spoon | They Want My Soul

03. D’Angelo | Black Messiah

02. Iceage | Plowing Into the Field of Love

01. Run the Jewels | Run the Jewels 2
