Best Albums of 2014

Click for full list!

Initially when I sat down to reflect on the music of 2014, it didn’t seem very memorable. I didn’t spend quite as much time listening to music this past year due to an uptick in my podcast listening. However, after looking back through my various sources, I remembered loads of great stuff. I discovered many new artists and enjoyed some follow-up albums from old favorites. Hope you enjoy the list.
