libby's top albums of 2014!

OOF, has this been an amazing year of music or what!?  In no particular order, here are my picks of the best albums of 2014.

FKA Twigs - LP1

Once I heard "How's That" from EP2, I was dying for a full album.  She did NOT disappoint and I don't think I'll stop being fascinated by her for a very long time.

Gorgon City - Sirens

These guys did a great job of filling my Disclosure-loving heart.  A distinct bass "thump" in the chorus of each song and great guest vocalists - nobody does 90s house music like the Brits.

SOHN - Tremors

The emotion in each song kills me.  Someone tore him up...

Beck - Morning Phase

Okay, I lied, I have two albums tied for first place.  This is one of them.  I have to admit, I haven't listened to Beck's stuff much outside of the 90s and man, this came out of nowhere!  Haunting and gorgeous.

Caribou - Our Love

This is my other #1 album.  I love each and every song from this album but the standout song, of course, is "Can't Do Without You."  Just those four words building up for 5 minutes...unreal.

Toni Braxton & Babyface - Love, Marriage & Divorce

I know, this came out of nowhere.  Though a little cheesy at times, it took me right back to the mid-90s.

Royal Blood - Royal Blood

Rock is alive and well in these two Brits.  The first song along blows my face off every time I hear it.

Ariana Grande - My Everything

Don't worry, I whip myself every night for loving this album.  Too bad it came from such a terrible little brat.

Sam Smith - In the Lonely Hour

He's an angel.  That is all.

Tinashe - Aquarius

Take note, Rihanna, this is how it's done.

Little Dragon - Nabuma Rubberband

The minute I heard "Klapp Klapp" I knew we were in for a great album...
