Best Albums Of 2014

Here is my current list for 2014. It will bed through December. Some minor and major disappointments so far this year include the new Iced Earth, Cynic, In Flames and Judas Priest. I do think some tracks from each of those releases are quite good but overall just don't love any of them. Agalloch's new album I haven't quite decided on. Same with November's Doom. Agalloch's is particularly mind boggling and not always in a good way. Still looking forward to Devin Townsend, Old Man Gloom, Pink Floyd, Unearth, Haken and At the Gates.
1Arch Enemy
War Eternal

I'm going to get shit on (literally) for this but what can I say. I think this is their best album in a long time and I just really enjoy listening to it.
2 Animals as Leaders
Joy of Motion

This band continues to impress me. This one is a grower and has some of my favorite tracks they've released.

Beautiful album. I listened to it while I visited France and it only added to the experience.
Distant Satellites

Yet another great album from Anathema. This one is still growing on me but it will sit here for now.
Pale Communion

Makes me dance. Derp
6 Mastodon
Once More Round the Sun

I haven't completely made up my mind on this yet but I think it's solid in a year that has been filled with many disappointments.
Hymns for the Broken
8Casualties of Cool

Solid album with some pretty unique tracks from Townsend. I would say it is a little overstuffed but I do enjoy it overall.
9Killer Be Killed
Killer Be Killed

Great collaboration. I blind bought this one and it was worth it.

Not really Mars Volta at all despite most of the same members, which is fine and it works pretty well. Though I do prefer the best of Mars Volta more than this.
