Top 100 Music Albums of 2014 by travelful (2021)

2014 snapshot. another amazing year.

Every album I listen to will be included on here, even if I hated it. You may also notice some higher rated albums in the comments, while some albums I hated are still featured in the chart. This is because I create my yearly charts as "snapshots" of the music scene from that year. From these I create my decade charts, where you will find no filler. Basically anything rated 60% or higher I recommend depending on your tastes.

I enjoy your style of assembling year charts, and I appreciate your listing some of the other 2014 albums you've heard and digested but that didn't make your top 100. I've been rating and sometimes reviewing those, but not listing them alongside the top 100.

On this chart I'd like to single out St. Vincent's self-titled album for special attention, as I think it beautifully encapsulates what makes her great: she's one of those rare artists who's both a virtuoso on the guitar and a terrific songwriter. Her electric playing on St. Vincent is some of the best she's done, and I could see that one rising higher in my top ten at some point.
