Best albums from 2014?

Post by Petrocelli » Wed Dec 31, 2014 4:57 pm

My top 10, in no particular order. I am basing this on how much I listened to the albums.

1. Miranda Lambert: Platinum - Great top 40 Country
2. Beck: Morning Phase - Very mellow, trippy rock. I can't recall anything like this album.
3. Run the Jewels: Run the Jewels - Very, VERY hadcore rap. Thickly layered, with beats heaped on beats.
4. Justin Townes Earle: Single Mothers - Mellow rock with a touch of country
5. The Strypes: The Strypes - 17 year old English kids that sound like the early Rolling Stones (Google their appearance on Letterman)
6. Mary J. Blige: The London Sessions - Amazing vocals, and heartfelt lyrics
7. Nikki Minaj: The Pinkprint - She raps about sex with men like male rappers talk about women. Interesting.
8. Prince: Art Official Age - His best album in decades.
9. The Wind and the Wave: From the Wreckage - Country Rock from a little known Austin band.
10. Pete Molinari: Theosophy - This album sounds like it was made in the late 60s or early 70s. It reminds me of George Harrison's All Things Must Pass.

I am always looking for good music. Post your favorites from 2014!

Sound Mirror by Syd Arthur. Relatively new British prog group. Saw them at a recent YES concert as the opening act.

Good list. I would add:

Spoon – They Want My Soul (rock/pop)
FKA twigs – LP1 (trip hop modern R&B or whatever the kids call it) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yDP9MKVhZc

Wow - you like quite the range of music! I wish my tastes were across a wider spectrum. (Nikki Minaj I certainly can't take. Only forced to listen to it by teenage daughters :) I also don't like music where no musical instruments are used....some antiquated principle of mine).

I was happy that one of my teen daughters started embracing some non-pop rock (where they play instruments) - "The 1975" is one I like.

Brian Free & Assurance - Album Unashamed
Here is the title cut https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9TAL2DMer0
I love it. I am guessing I have played the title cut 70 times at least.
Another great one from the same album
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8mC5Uaikaw

I just heard this song a few days ago not sure what album it is on but it is a very good song.

L.C. Cooke - The Complete SAR Recordings. You don't know him, but you know his older brother, Sam. This record (cheap on Amazon) was recorded 50 years ago, but released for the first time in 2014. A great classic-soul time capsule.

Discovered St. Vincent on a top 10 list, and have been listening to it for a couple days. Really like it.

I like Future islands, but it didn't make the top 10 list.

I listened to FKA Twigs for a while. I liked the "Lights On" single. In fact, it's one of my favorites. I see that album on a lot of top 10 lists, but it's a little too dispassionate for me.

My secretary recommended Nikki Minaj. I was surprised by how much I liked it.

If you like good rock and roll, check out the Strypes. Here they are live on Letterman.

I think that is a fair criticism. I honestly rarely really listen to it just to listen, I put it on while cooking or reading, etc. Same for the Beck album but that one you can really listen to as well. Really a great album that I have noticed has gained steam as the year went on.

I really like JTE, have seen him live 6x, I think he really is more "Americana" than anything, with a good dose of blues the last 3 releases. Like some tunes from Single Mothers, but like his other releases better, especially the two just prior. St. Vincent I listened to it a few weeks ago, will revisit and see if she sticks or not.

Album probably beats digital or analog physical media as a term.

I don't really buy music in albums anymore but rather tend to buy individual songs in digital format. I would say my music tastes are more diverse because of the advent of digital downloads rather than less so.

"Album" is proper. It means a collection of things. Like a photo album or what have you.

If you're getting them through spotify, CD or LP would not be correct. :)

Houndmouth, "From the Hills Below the City". Best described as a hipper version of The Band.

The Pack A.D., "Do Not Engage", two women garage band from Canada.

And eagerly anticipating March 3, 2015 for the new album by Modest Mouse called "Strangers to Ourselves", which has been seven years in the making.

I stumbled onto the Benz Mixed Tape site sometime ago, a curated hand-picked string of musical discoveries. Every ten weeks, they release a new download compilation featuring some very interesting new talents from around the world.

For classical music, the bargain of the year is a "complete" set of Haydn string quartets, recorded by the Festetics Quartet, the equivalent of 19 CDs as high-quality MP3 downloads for $9.99:

http://www.cduniverse.com/productinfo.a ... etpref=mp3

I put "complete" in quotes because this set doesn't include some early works that either (a) probably were not actually written by Haydn or (b) are nowadays considered to be "divertimentos" rather than "quartets".
My investing princiPLEs do not include absolutely preserving princiPAL.

I find that Country is now closer to the rock I grew up with than rock is. Other albums country alums that I liked from last year:

Lee Ann Womack: The way I'm Livin'
Robert Ellis: The Light form the Chemical Plant

First Aid Kit is tops on the "shows I missed that I wish I would have gone to." The frenzy over Hozier tickets recalls early Adele -- ticket broker price of $200+ for upcoming show locally.

I'm also liking:

King Tuff -- Black Moon Spell
Broken Bells -- After the Disco
Ex Hex - Rips

I was excited to chime in on this topic, but then i realized i can't name many albums. I grew up in the days when you held the album in your hands, looked at the pictures, read the lyrics, etc. Now i am lucky if i can name the artist. That being said, i want to name a couple, and i'm going to depart from the OP's guideline a bit on the last two:

Ben Howard - I forget where we were; i'm just beginning to discover this one.
Vienna Teng - Aims. OK this came out end of 2013, but i discovered it early 2014. It's one of the best total albums i've heard in a long time, and noone has heard of her.
Xavier Rudd- ok he didn't release an album in 2014, but he is pretty much the best thing ever.

I'm really impressed with the Strypes. I'm 45 and feel so old now......especially love Letterman's comment at the end. :D

It's nice to know a bunch of teenagers are out there covering The Specials, The Ramones, Bo Diddley and the Yardbirds! Their originals are great too.

Here's some interesting data. It certainly applies to me.

I own almost 2,000 albums (all legal), but I haven't bought one in 4-5 years.

I stream now.
