Albums of the Year | 2014

No Comments 25 | January | 2015

It’s that time of year again.  At least it WAS that time of year…two months ago.  Still, it’s never too late for an Albums of the Year list, right?  I just wanted to be sure nobody copied my answers.

According to some parts of the internet, 2014 wasn’t a triumph in the album arena, with the exception of Taylor Swift’s 527 ft home run, 1989.  Speaking of monster home runs and 1989, shout out to the Bash Brothers – Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire.  Despite this ruling by the interwebs that doesn’t mean there are some serious gems out there.

Thanks to all my favorite people for slangin’ recommendations my way throughout the year.  Per the usual, gimme a shout with any albums that I absolutely, positively haaaave to check out, lest my street cred flow directly into the sewer.  I’m all ears.

Now for the moment you’ve been waiting for….the L.I.S.T.  My Top 50 Albums of 2014. Continue Reading

2012 has come to an end, and it was decidedly less epic than the Mayan calendar predicted.  Ce la vie.  Well, at least we have a vie to ce la.  While another disastrous prediction awaits the US population at the close of our calendar year, at least we have a few days in between to celebrate with loved ones.  But when that love turns to annoyance, why not take the time to read this list of my favorite 40 albums from 2012.  Another solid year of music is in the books and I’m left craving anything and everything that 2013 will have to offer.
