Best Albums of 2014


The Top Ten

1 Awakening - Jackie Evancho

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 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!

This list sucks. Why aren't albums by bands such as Mayhem, Judas Priest, Mastodon etc, not in the top ten? - IronSabbathPriest

2 The Hunting Party - Linkin Park The Hunting Party - Linkin Park

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

This is Linkin Park's hardest album and I like the new direction

3 To Be Kind - Swans To Be Kind - Swans

Why are Linkin Park, Taylor Swift & Jackie Evancho above this? Those albums aren't bad, but they're nothing compared to To Be Kind. - djpenquin999

Absolutely fantastic album! Should be in the top 5! - JackRodriguez

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

Was gonna vote for Run The Jewels 2, but this... - WonkeyDude98

4 1989 - Taylor Swift 1989 - 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.

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!

This won the Grammy for Album Of The Year... And it was very well deserving. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

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

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. - Caleb9000

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

6 The Endless River - Pink Floyd The Endless River - Pink Floyd

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.

This album isn't at #1?!
Come on this is one of the best albums ever that released by a legendary band.
A wonderful album that has perfect songs.

7 1000 Forms of Fear - Sia 1000 Forms of Fear - Sia

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.

8 .5 the Gray Chapter - Slipknot .5 the Gray Chapter - Slipknot

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 - SirSkeletorThe3rd

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

Music by Gingers should be banned.

16 Pale Communion - Opeth Pale Communion - Opeth
17 X - Chris Brown

Chris Brown is not in prison only because he is a popular social figure, which is not a valid reason. He needs to go to jail and learn that beating up women is not OK.

This album is just amazing beyond belief
