12 Hidden Gems Of 2014

2014 was a fantastic year, but a lot of albums didn't get the recognition they deserved. Here are 12 of my favorite "overlooked" albums of the year that you guys may have missed.
1Earth and Pillars
Earth I


3.7 - atomospheric bm (nothing i haven't heard before but done exceptionally well
2PVRIS
Acoustic


3.9 - acoustic alt rock with emotion and atmosphere (RIYL: paramore)
3Somos
Temple of Plenty


3.8 - emo/alt rock. yes i reviewed it but it still never got as much love as it should have.
4Ainulindale
Nevrast


3.7 - definitely a more upliting kind of neofolk album inspired by works of Tolkien
5Deep Mountains
Lake of Solace


3.7 - not quite as good as their last one but still a great atmospheric bm release
6Dornenreich
Freiheit


3.7 - really nice blend of black metal and neofolk
7Weatherbox
Flies in All Directions


3.5 - alt rock in a very similar vein as Say Anything. Surprised this wasn't more loved by sput
8Molly and the Zombies
Molly and the Zombies


3.5 - Brian Fallon's project was probably better than the gaslight anthem's last album but never gained much recognition
9Sangre de Muerdago & Novemthree
Braided Paths


4 - one of the most overlooked splits of 2014 is also one of the best. if you like Agalloch or dark folk in general you should enjoy this
10Trophy Eyes
Mend, Move On


3.9 - a fantastic punk rock album that should have made it to more year-end lists
11Disemballerina
Undertaker


3.5 - one of the most bizarre and intriguing neofolk albums of 2014, even if it wasn't the best it's worth checking out if not just for how different it is
12Asya Sergeeva
Heart of Winter


4.2 - saving the best for last. Asya Sergeeva is a harp player who plays neofolk with Celtic influences and a ton of variety and emotion is to be found here. It only has 1 vote so please listen to this gem
