The last three years I have done this (check them out here: 2011, 2012 & 2013), I made Top Twenty lists. But, I don’t know…I guess this was either a lamer year for music, or I was just a lot lazier about seeking out good stuff (I’m actually positive it’s the later). There were certainly albums I liked just fine (Hozier, Jack White, Leonard Cohen, Beck), and a couple albums that might have made their way onto the list if I hadn’t just heard them for the first time in the last week or so (alt-J and Charli XCX). But, overall, the following ten are really the only albums I can think of that really stuck with me this year. Oh, I also want to throw a special “Honorable Mention” shout-out to the soundtrack for The Guest, which was by far the best movie soundtrack of the year, and actually received a lot more play from me than some of the actual albums on this list. Now, with that out of the way, onto my ten favorite albums of 2014:
With Jason Lives, the Friday the 13th series opened up its doors to all sorts of new, more fantastical story directions. It didn’t take them very long to capitalize on this, as today’s movie attempted to give Jason a brand new nemesis with a supernatural bent of her own. Did it work out? Read on to find out. And, as always, SPOILERS AHEAD.
