Breakingthefragile's 2014: First Half

Apologies for this list being tardy, but I had to re-listen to a lot of stuff rjust to be sure. This isn't restricted to just studio albums, I have 2 rOSTs, a live album, and 5 EPs. It's basically just a list of my 50 rfavorite music releases from the last 6 months. Objectivity plays no part rin this, and if an "essential" from the year is missing, just remember that I rcan't listen to everything in such a short amount of time. Cheers!

Experimental Rock / Psychedelic Rock / Drone: This is so good that it actually makes the idea of listening to the 24-hour version not life-destroying.

A/T/O/S


Trip Hop / Alternative R&B: Trip Hop makes a comeback.
7Thee Silver Mount Zion
Hang On to Each Other


Acid Techno / Industrial Dance: I actually like this better than their studio outing this year. Probably because I'm a sucker for gritty electronica remixes.
6Mongol Horde
Mongol Horde


Hardcore Punk: Frank should shred his ass off more often.
5 D'Angelo
Live at the Jazz Cafe, London [Reissue]


R&B / Soul / Jazz: The complete set, and actually in the order performed this time around.
4Sevendust
Time Travelers and Bonfires


Acoustic Rock / Alternative Metal: In which they finally do away with those bone-headed nu metal riffs, exchange them for some crisp acoustic sounds, and let nothing get in the way of Lajon's incredible voice.

Alternative Hip Hop / Underground Hip Hop: Fuck clipping., Hip Hop AOTY. "Canal" basically goes harder than anything.
2Arcade Fire
Her


Score music / Orchestral / Chamber Pop: The fact that something as minimal and delicate as this was made in the same year as their most grandiose and ambitious studio album is a testament to how dynamic this is. Absolutely beautiful.

Experimental / Post-Rock / Post-Punk: Better than The Seer. Fuck it.
