Top 100 Music Albums of 2014 by Purplepash (2021)

A good year for psychedelic rock, indie rock, art punk, punk rock, and art pop.

By "best" I mean "subjectively my favourite from what I have listened to" but best is quicker and easier to type.

"And I'll shut up and spend a week inside my head"

Amazing album. Musical nervous anxiety.

1010 songs: More Than Any Other Day, Habit, Weather Song, and Gemini (an awsome way to close the album).

Best folk punk album of the year
Best Australian album of the year

"So I ask for directions even though I know exactly where I am
Just want someone to talk to"

Honest unflinching emo folk punk with powerful song structures and some great lyrics throughout -
"And the first time we made love
It was dark and we were drunk
In someone else's, someone else's hostel bathroom
And you turned your back to me
And I said, "If this is the first of many
Then turn back around so I can fucking kiss you""

10/10 song: I Don't Want To Die Anymore
