Top Ten Albums of 2014

Here is my annual list of my favorite albums of the year. I tried out a new format this year, so let me know if you like this one. If you just want to know who made my list, you can see them here. If you want to know why I picked each album, click on the link and go the post dedicated to each one.

It was a great year for music, featuring the best day I can remember for music releases: September 9. Artists whose albums came out that day include U2, Lecrae, Justin Townes Earle, Switchfoot, Interpol, Delta Spirit, Ryan Adams, Robert Plant, and Judah and the Lion. Anyway, here’s my list, let me know what you think!

  1. Hey Scott,
    I came to your blog and appreciated your latest post, noting the “Christian Clickbait Blogger Culture” and thought it was solid. Then the comment section was very discouraging and rude towards you and that’s a drag.
    Then I found something *wildly* controversial, your top music list from 2014 😛
    Anyways, solid list, good work, and props on the Big K.R.I.T. mention!

    My only beef with you now is that you picked Black Keys over Jack White’s 2014 Lazaretto 😉

    Blessings,
    -Anthony

    1. Hah, I’ve never believed that one has to pick between White and the Black Keys because I don’t think they are similar at all. I just grew tired of White’s schtick. I’m sure Lazaretto is enjoyable for White fans, but I guess I’m over him. Thanks for reading!
