The Top Ten

Awakening - Jackie Evancho
Sure to earn a Grammy nomination!
The single from the Awakening album, "The Rains of Castamere" (from Game Of Thrones) will be released on iTunes and Tuesday, June 10th. It's already on yahoo music and YouTube in lower resolution, and it sounds great! Go, Jackie!
Hello, world... Prepare to get blown out of your socks!
[Newest]Overrated, get off the list.

2The Hunting Party - Linkin Park
COME ON guys, It deserves to be at number 1! Awakening is good but The Hunting Party is so much better!


Finally we can look forward to good Linkin Park albums again
Put this first, we all know it deserves to be.


[Newest]Definitely number 1, Awakening is should be off the list

3The Endless River - Pink Floyd
Amazing album! Another masterpiece by Pink Floyd. best album of the year, the second best is To Be Kind - Swans.
Pink Floyd are legends


Their last album ever. Truly a masterpiece.

4Sonic Highways - Foo Fighters
What needs to be said

5Rock or Bust - AC/DC
"Play Ball", is my new favorite AC/DC song.


Best album of the DECADE. play ball is a masterpiece.


6X - Chris Brown
This album is just amazing beyond belief
Chris Brown the BOSS

7The Grey Chapter - slipknot
Not the best slipknot album, but its still great.


Unbelievably stunning. Maybe not the best but definitely a close 2nd. What makes it even more special is that it's about the death of Paul Gray.R.I.P. #2.

8X - Ed Sheeran
Confused as to how this hasn't made it to number 1 yet, let alone be added to the list at all? Gosh

9Shakira - Shakira
It was my most anticipated album 2014... And I wasn't disappointed at all. I love this album! I love Shakira!


10V - Maroon 5

The Contenders

11Ghost Stories - Coldplay

12To Be Kind - Swans
Absolutely fantastic album! Should be in the top 5!


#14 is just way too low
Why is it so low? For me, this album is the best of the 2010s


13The Pinkprint - Nicki Minaj

14In the Lonely Hour - Sam Smith

15Trigga - Trey Songz

16Shady XV - Shady Records
Incredibly underrated... Em, Slaughterhouse and Yela KILL their tracks/verses; so do Sean and Danny on DvE. Guts Over Fear, Detroit vs. Everybody, Y'all Ready Know, Psychopath Killer, ShadyXV, Vegas, Fine Line... All of them are so good. Compilation Record Label album is the only reason it hasn't gotten as much attention.

17Oxymoron - Schoolboy Q
Oxymoron is a classic. Q killed this, no disrespect to anyone else on this list, but I like all music and the only album that really stands out is Oxy. Animal Ambition is nothing special, Ghost Stories is good, but it isn't something people will talk about in a years time.

181989 - Taylor Swift
I can truthfully say I am not disappointed with her album, as I originally thought I would be. All the songs sound like future ballads and even one of the bonus tracks is one of my favourite songs. I think Taylor did a good job on this one.
Not bad but where is ariana grande's my everything.

19Hydra - Within Temptation

20Songs of Innocence - U2
Great album, great band. Hope for a quick follow-up

21CLPPNG - Clipping
The production on this is amazing; this is the best hip hop album of 2014 for sure. It's best songs are: Get Up, Inside Out, Story 2.
This band continue to blow my mind

22My Own Lane - Kid Ink

23While (1<2) - Deadmau5
Definitely my favourite album so far this year.


24My Everything - Ariana Grande
Should be ranked much higher than this. It includes Love me harder, problem, break free, alittle bit of your herat and many more favorites!

25Ultraviolence - Lana del Rey
Um no1 please! The top ten should have been. The worst of the year! *walks of singing ultraviolence *

28.5 the Gray Chapter - Slipknot

291000 Forms of Fear - Sia

30Recess - Skrillex
