Best Albums of 2014

The Top Ten

1 Awakening - Jackie Evancho Awakening - Jackie Evancho Product Image

Hello, world... Prepare to get blown out of your socks!

The single from the Awakening album, "The Rains of Castamere" (from Game Of Thrones) will be released on iTunes and amazon.com Tuesday, June 10th. It's already on yahoo music and YouTube in lower resolution, and it sounds great! Go, Jackie!

Sure to earn a Grammy nomination!

Awakening will be released as a DVD on June 2, 2015. Jackie hit this one out of the ball park. She shows why her talent is being recognized by the biggest talents in Classical Crossover. Jackie has perhaps the most beautiful voice of this century.

2 The Hunting Party - Linkin Park The Hunting Party - Linkin Park Product Image

I sort of like listening to this album when there is nothing else to do.

This album is very listening.

Finally we can look forward to good Linkin Park albums again

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

3 To Be Kind - Swans To Be Kind - Swans Product Image

Why are Linkin Park, Taylor Swift & Jackie Evancho above this? Those albums aren't bad, but they're nothing compared to To Be Kind.

Deserves Number 1. Jackie Evancho and Linkin Park have nothing compared to Swans.

Absolutely fantastic album! Should be in the top 5!

This album, apart from the first half, literally has zero flaws. Best album of 2014, hands down.

4 The Endless River - Pink Floyd The Endless River - Pink Floyd Product Image

Final album by one of the best bands of all time, how is it not number 1?

Amazing album! Another masterpiece by Pink Floyd. best album of the year, the second best is To Be Kind - Swans.

Their last album ever. Truly a masterpiece.

Pink Floyd are legends

5 Rock or Bust - AC/DC

AC/DC has never gone anywhere groundbreaking with their sound, but it works for them, and while this album doesn't look like we'll remember it like the other classic AC/DC albums, it delivers. It certainly doesn't deserve to be this high up on the list.

"Play Ball", is my new favorite AC/DC song.

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

6 1000 Forms of Fear - Sia 1000 Forms of Fear - Sia Product Image

This is the best album of 2014 and I don't care what anybody has to say about it. Sia is one of the only singers that know how to sing soulful yet pop music nowadays.

7 1989 - Taylor Swift 1989 - Taylor Swift Product Image

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.

Each track is memorable and beautiful. 1989 is a to-be classic hit with the hottest break up and love songs. Love love love. I don't know if anyone in the USA has not heard a song from the album!

A genius album, her second best album tied with "Red", behind "Speak Now." Really shows how mature Taylor's become.

Not bad but where is ariana grande's my everything.

8 Run the Jewels 2 - Run the Jewels Run the Jewels 2 - Run the Jewels Product Image

The only GOOD album that year had to offer. 8/10

Uhhh, undoubtedly the best hip hop album of 2014 sits at 43, behing rick ross, sage the gemini, and shady xv. This list is pretty awful

I'm sorry, but how on earth is this album below Shady XV, I am an Em fan, and that album was just mediocre, Run The Jewels is a masterpiece, EL-P's production is otherwordly, and the 1 2 punch of Killer Mike and El-p in the mic is incredible

9 Mandatory Fun - "Weird Al" Yankovic Mandatory Fun -

This album is going go down as his best albums it has tacky foil word crimes and many more amazing songs

10 .5 the Gray Chapter - Slipknot .5 the Gray Chapter - Slipknot Product Image

Why is Taylor Swift and Sia above this great album by one of the greatest metal bands of this generation? Damn, this album is like a mixtape. It's fire man

The Newcomers

? Sleepify - Vulfpeck
? Fugue State - Vulfpeck

The Contenders

11 St. Vincent - St. Vincent St. Vincent - St. Vincent Product Image

Should be higher on the list. This album was great.

12 Everything Will Be Alright In the End - Weezer Everything Will Be Alright In the End - Weezer Product Image

I think everyone can agree with me that if Weezer would have promoted this Album more, they would have easily won Album of the Year, rather than Beck.

13 2014 Forest Hills Drive - J Cole 2014 Forest Hills Drive - J Cole Product Image

Best album in years. How is it 111?

104? You're kidding right?

14 Redeemer of Souls - Judas Priest Redeemer of Souls - Judas Priest Product Image

Priest never lets you down.

15 Sonic Highways - Foo Fighters Sonic Highways - Foo Fighters Product Image

What needs to be said

16 V - Maroon 5 V - Maroon 5 Product Image
17 Ultraviolence - Lana del Rey

The best album of 2014. Lana delivered an instant rock classic album. Beautifully put together & gorgeous vocals / lyrics.

Um no1 please! The top ten should have been. The worst of the year! *walks of singing ultraviolence *

18 The Beauty of Destruction - Devil You Know The Beauty of Destruction - Devil You Know Product Image

There a new band, but still amazing.

20 Black Messiah - D'angelo and the Vanguard Black Messiah - D'angelo and the Vanguard Product Image
21 Queen of the Clouds - Tove Lo Queen of the Clouds - Tove Lo Product Image
22 Ghost Stories - Coldplay Ghost Stories - Coldplay Product Image

Great album, you get amazing songs like A Sky Full of Stars, Magic, True Love, Midnight, Always In My Head, Ink, and all the other songs on this album! Oh, and the artwork cover for the album is amazing.

23 X - Ed Sheeran X - Ed Sheeran Product Image

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

This should be #1.

Music by Gingers should be banned.

Best album IN YEARS

24 Hozier - Hozier Hozier - Hozier Product Image
