My favorite albums of 2014

Seems like this post comes later every year. This year, my excuse is my other site I’ve been spending too much time on. And to be honest, I haven’t been that hugely excited about much this year. There are a lot of albums I like, but nothing that really jumps out as number 1 material. So…

No Reason, No Conscience, No Understanding
