Hackskeptic’s Top 20 Albums Of 2014

bof2014
2014 marked a momentous change in my personal life and a significant change in the way I listen to music. In July I emigrated from my home town in England and permanently relocated to sunny Tucson, Arizona to marry my lovely wife. Secondly, 2014 was the year radio became redundant to my listening habits. For many years it has slowly diminished in representing the music I love and all my discovery has come from recommendation or personal searching via the internet/Spotify. Better late than never, here’s my favourite collections from last year.

20 – Manic Street Preachers – Futurology (Columbia)
19 – Morrissey – World Peace Is None Of Your Business (Harvest/Capitol)
18 – Wild Beasts – Present Tense (Domino)
17 – East India Youth – Total Strife Forever (XL/Stolen)
16 – Kate Tempest – Everybody Down (Big Dada)
15 – Real Estate – Atlas (Domino)
14 – Leonard Cohen – Popular Problems (Columbia)
13 – Future Islands – Singles (4AD)
12 – Robert Plant – Lullaby And… The Ceaseless Roar (Nonsuch/Warners)
11 – Ty Segall – Manipulator (Drag City)
10 – Jack White – Lazaretto (Third Man/XL/Columbia)
9 – FKA Twigs – LP1 (Young Turks)
8 – Damon Albarn – Everyday Robots (Parlophone/XL/Warners)
7 – Sleaford Mods – Divide And Exit (Harbinger Sound)
