What's yours, /mu/?
these are objectively the best albums from each year of this decade
nobody listens to your favorite super obscure bedroom recordings for a reason (they suck and you just want to feel special by liking something nobody else likes)
Was torn between this and Lese Majesty, but it boiled down to "which album has a better shot of getting bumped up to a 5 on RYM over time?" and "which album will i associate with 2014 when i think back to this year"? As of right now, i'd say i slightly prefer Shabazz, but when i answer both of those questions, this album wins out.
There are 3 albums that i've heard in the past few weeks that are completely fucking up my top 30. This is one of them. (the other two are D'Angelo and Lunatic Soul, for the record.)
Amen Dunes - Love
Only discovered this a week ago and I think it just clinches my top spot. Loving it more and more with every listen
I really cannot recommend this enough, it is that good
name 5 better albums i bet you can't without listing some stupid shit that sounds like dudes farting in a bathtub or screaming devil music or some boring ass folk album we've heard millions of times or homemade electronic shit you found on some blog
>implying Beach House isn't one of the most washed up and recycled dream pop bands around
>implying Deafheaven aren;t screaming devil music
>implying pom pom isn't a boring ass pop album we've heard millions of times
Kanye West - The College Dropout
Kanye West - Late Registration
Kanye West - Graduation
Kanye West - 808s & Heartbreak
Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
Kanye West - Yeezus
There, I named six.
edgy unpopular opinion incoming: This is a better album than Deathconsciousness.
No matter how many times i listen to that record, as good as it is, i can't bring myself to say that it justifies its length.
TUW, on the other hand, is damn near flawlessly sequenced and doesn't push its running time any longer than it needs.
Can't quite decide on what my AOTY actually is, but this is definitely right up there.
overrated tripe. musically it's solid, but his voice is terrible, and as a whole the album is not exceptional and simply doesnt merit the hype.
eh.... there are better and more interesting and moving things released this year but *shrug*
this is painful. WoD is so bland and forgettable. it's not bad music, i just absolutely fail to see why it is something that would be anyone's contender for aoty
this is an underrated choice imo
i can agree with this entirely. i appreciate the input
a solid release, but it doesnt strike me as that overwhelming
nobody cares about your aoty either so why bother posting about others' opinions about aotys? seriously it's pretty vapid without discussion if the only point of these threads is to post "abum covers of 2014"
also >>52264447 isn't me but this shit is hilarious lmao
Vladislav Delay - Visa
Leon Vynehall - Music for the Uninvited
HTRK - Psychic 5-9 club
I just listened to this and it blew me away
My nig, that's my 2nd AOTY choice
Anything like this with less growling?
I'm not calling you a drone, but shouldn't you wait a little longer before you call it your album of the year? Let it set in at the very least, that way you're judging it without that initial surge of serotonin and dopamine clouding your ability to judge it properly?
see very little talk about this record on this board
> i just absolutely fail to see why it is something that would be anyone's contender for aoty
It's the epitome of "blissful". The album invokes its title in its sound in the best of ways, and it's exactly the type of album I needed this year. If there's any album who's sound perfectly matches up with my mind set on life, at least at the moment, it's Lost in the Dream.
Good to know we agree on HANL though.
You might like Drudkh. Check out Autumn Aura, Blood In Our Wells, or Songs of Grief and Solitude (acoustic/instrumental). The first two albums still have growls but they're a little more spread out.
Fuck p4k, every song on this album is sick.
pretty weak year IMO. anyone else feel this way
I'd recommend this. But I can't say it's my AOTY. Mainly, because I need to really listen to it more.
well i agree with that statement, but thinking half of any kind of top/favorite chart on /mu/ is worth listening to is pretty rare, don't you? i'm surprised when I even recognize half of someone's chart.
I need 2 more albums to finish out my list of favorites for the year. This is my 2014 chart.
I guess thats true, but when it comes to aoty lists, especially when theyre genre specific ones like that you usually expect that theyll at least be decent. I guess this is /mu/ though so you get all types of shit
are we going to count this for aoty? At least the best re-release
so far its pic related, but if were talking hip hop aoty id probably say rtj2
pic related is AOTY
I also liked Pinata, Civlia Demo, NOTM, Salad Days, Syro, Alvvays s/t, LP1, and Sisyphus

This comes off as a suprise me for me, since I'm mainly into underground hiphop and this is reggae/soul/dub
It has such a smooth, dreamy vibe that I absolutely fell in love with the album, not a single track sucks

john dwyer tops all lists always (in my heart). met him after seeing thee oh sees in montreal and we talked about hubba bubba for a lil bit. I wish I had asked him about silver apples but I was too busy gushing...but they played "I have found love" between the openers :)
