All this week we’ve been posting the results of our staff poll of the best releases of 2014. Find out your choices for Album of the Year and an aggregated Top 25 of Reader choices after the jump.
Hello once again! We’ve already written a whole lot about albums from this year that we loved, but as you could probably tell from our individual staff top 10 lists, there were a whole slew of albums that individuals in the group adored but were unable to crack our aggregate top 50. We all try to listen to as much music as humanly possible throughout the year, but we are also humans with jobs and lives and families, and there are times that some of us just flat-out miss out on some great stuff. So that’s what the below entries are about. Consider these a few of our personal “honorable mentions.” And if there are any albums from our lists or here that you still think we missed out on, feel free to share them in the comments.
Welcome back! We just gave you our official staff Top 50 list, but we’re dedicating today to breaking things down and giving you a peek at some of the picks from our individual staff members. In this post you’ll find lists of the top 10 albums from every staff writer and editor who participated in our internal poll this month. As you’ll see, even though our aggregated list appears to make some pretty large preferential statements in itself, when broken down to individuals there’s an even wider array of tastes and opinions on display.
In just a bit you’ll get to read about some of the albums listed here in our “Outliers” post. But for now, enjoy your lists upon lists!
The world is filled with music, some of it great some less so. So find out the latest collection of “Shit Brian Shields Should Hear” and maybe you should too after the jump.
