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]Seriously? This is first?

2The Hunting Party - Linkin Park
Finally we can look forward to good Linkin Park albums again
Put this first, we all know it deserves to be.


3X - Chris Brown
This album is just amazing beyond belief
Chris Brown the BOSS

4The 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.

5Trigga - Trey Songz

6Rock or Bust - AC/DC
"Play Ball", is my new favorite AC/DC song.


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


7V - Maroon 5

8Sonic Highways - Foo Fighters
What needs to be said

9Ghost Stories - Coldplay

10X - 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

The Contenders

11In the Lonely Hour - Sam Smith

12Remember Me - Sage the Gemini
If you want to find real rap, look no further than Sage the Gemini.


13Shady XV - Shady Records

14To 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


15The Grey Chapter - slipknot
Not the best slipknot album, but its still great.


16Oxymoron - 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.

171989 - 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.

18The Pinkprint - Nicki Minaj

19Shakira - Shakira
It was my most anticipated album 2014... And I wasn't disappointed at all. I love this album! I love Shakira!
