-Charli XCX released an album??? Wow was not expecting that. Let me know what you guys think about it.

(I’m breaking the original rules that restricted me to tagging only six people and posting only six albums. It’s just that I love this idea and couldn’t be confined to just a few. Plus, it’s an incredible way to gather more favorites, wouldn’t you agree?)

Thatalternativekid's Best Albums of 2014

Creating the following list was particularly challenging for me given just how diverse the spectrum of music created in 2014 was. New artists such as FKA twigs and Lake Street Dive blurred the lines between genres while seasoned veterans like St. Vincent and The Black Keys reimagined their role in the music world. On the albums Goddess and I Never Learn, earnest and pleading vocals took center stage, whereas on Alvvays and Salad Days, the focus was more on the aesthetically-pleasing and sentimental tunes. Lyrically, Sharon Van Etten and Run the Jewels broke new ground, bringing deep emotions to the table and raising up new issues for discussion. In addition, the mellow music of Jenny Lewis and Future Islands was reminiscent of times when the world was less complicated, and music more pure. In this past year musicians showed us that no matter what crazy happenings take place in the world around us, music will always be there to take us back to a place of peace, humanity, and beauty.

  1. St. Vincent - St. Vincent
  2. Are We There - Sharon Van Etten
  3. The Voyager - Jenny Lewis
  4. LP1 - FKA twigs
  5. Turn Blue - The Black Keys
  6. Bad Self Portraits - Lake Street Dive
  7. Alvvays - Alvvays
  8. Singles - Future Islands
  9. So Long, See You Tomorrow - Bombay Bicycle Club
  10. Too Bright - Perfume Genius
  11. Love Letters - Metronomy
  12. Ritual in Repeat - Tennis
  13. Sweet Disarray - Dan Croll
  14. Supermodel - Foster the People
  15. Ryan Adams - Ryan Adams
  16. This Is All Yours - alt-J
  17. 1989 - Taylor Swift
  18. Run the Jewels 2 - Run the Jewels
  19. Ultraviolence - Lana Del Rey
  20. Salad Days - Mac DeMarco
  21. Goddess - Banks
