Best 60 Albums from Pretty Much Amazing

By now, many of you reading this have probably seen your fair share of year-end “Best Of” lists, so thank you for hanging out with us and giving us a chance to break through the cacophony with our take on music in 2014. Thanks for hanging out and listening to music with us at all. This year, like every year, was a blast. But as any music nerd with ears to the ground would tell you, music doesn’t have many connective threads these days. Trends emerge, there’s no doubt about that, but it’s rare that distinctive moods capture the zeitgeist anymore. For every revelatory, death-obsessed Benji, we had a bizarre and sexy St. Vincent; for every indignant and seething Too Bright, we had a party-starting and life-affirming It’s Album Time!; when the emotional and brutal honesty of Plowing Into A Field of Love would begin to overwhelm, we had the glorious hands-in-the-air freedom of 1989 to turn to. There’s never been a better time to be an omnivorous music fan.
