Something For All of Us’ Favorite Albums of 2014

2014

Every year, without fail, when I look back on everything that I’ve listened to this year one thought comes to mind: that was a lot of music. It may just be me (or it may be a valid perception) but, it certainly feels like this year had a lot of releases come out, and some solid ones at that. Some of them hooked me in from their opening notes, and others, revealed themselves and their charms more and more with each visit. In the end, both camps contributed notes to my 2014 soundtrack. Here are, in alphabetical order, those albums.
