Another year full of great music, over 30 albums here that I really enjoyed... a few of which were my very favorites of 2014. First, here's everything that piqued my interest...albums I enjoyed over repeated listens. It was a big year for drone, shoegaze, and experimental music, as well as a big comeback year for cult acts like ExHxGx, Godflesh, and more.

A few folks have asked me for my Top 10 record picks of 2014. Although, this is by no means a comprehensive list - I don't have time to hear - the following are a few studio albums that have made a strong impression on me. That's not to say these are the only good albums released this year (they aren't), but these are the ones I might pick for a top 10 if I were to do one (there's more than 10 here).

In other words, if you haven't heard any of these yet, and you find you agree with me on some things, you may want to put these on the old Christmas list!
