2014 Albums and Songs Poll - Post Lists Here

Postby Dan » Thu Jan 01, 2015 6:43 pm

It's the New Year, which means that it's about time for our Forum's annual reflection on our favourite albums and songs of the year that has just gone by.

There are two ways for you to vote for your favourite albums and songs of 2014:

1. Post a ranked list of at least 10 albums and/or 10 songs in this thread. I know many people find individual lists as (if not more) interesting as the consensus list, so it makes sense to allow everyone to post their lists here.

2. Send your list of albums and/or songs to daniel_meyer30@hotmail.com. I also know that some people enjoy an element of surprise, so if you'd rather keep your list secret, you can email it to me. I will post your list in this thread after the results have been revealed.

The provisional deadline for both albums and songs lists is 4 February 2015. You can list as many albums and songs as you please, but I will count the first 50. The formula I will use to calculate the scores is 20*(1+5)/(position+5). With this formula, your #1 album or song will get 20 points, while there's only a difference of about 6 points between your #10 and your #50 albums/songs. This means that the score allocation is top-heavy, but participants who choose to submit a list of more than 10 albums or songs will still have a small(er) amount of points allocated to the albums/songs lower down on their lists.

Feel free to post provisional lists, but please let me know if you have made changes to your lists so that I can ensure that I include your most up-to-date list.

Trust your ears and have fun.
Let's make this a good year.

Is Only One 2014 or 2015? Some sources say 2014 and some 2015.
I feel like that

Thanks, but I've not received your list. Don't know if it's stuck in your outbox, or something. Please try sending it again. Alternatively, you can also send it to me in a PM.

I have received a list by email from DocBrown.

With these polls, we normally use Rate Your Music as a guideline. RYM says the song was released on 31 December 2014, so I think it should be eligible.

There are a few song on the critics' year-end lists that are from 2013 and that we didn't get to vote for during our 2013 poll. They should probably be eligible too. Examples:

The War on Drugs - Red Eyes
Alvvays - Archie, Marry Me
Hozier - Take Me to Church
St. Vincent - Birth in Reverse
Schoolboy Q - Man of the Year
Liars - Mess on a Mission

This surprises me a little, considering how much you... you know.... fucking looooooooooove rap music. Hey, these surprises are part of the fun of reading through Forumers' individual lists.
Let's make this a good year.

There are few albums I like in this "genre" but this one appear to me like a breath of fresh air. I like the melodies...this is what is often missing most cruelly for me in the rap or hip-hop albums.

I don't think it's necessary to be too strict about eligibility. If you like a song you thought was from 2014, but then discover it was actually from a previous year, don't worry. Go ahead and vote for it. So the three songs mentioned by Phil are eligible too.

5. Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra - Take Away These Early Grave Blues


I would call this overkill but this really is one of the most underappreciated albums on EOY lists. Got rave reviews but the early January release date probably killed its chances.

Wish you had dropped this sooner so I had more time to catch up. Even after looking at dozens (hundreds?) of EOY lists I've never heard of four or five of these.

Andy Stott and Ariel Pink are two that I am higher on than you, but not surprisingly Swans / Dean Blunt / Todd Terje / D'Angelo will be shared top ten entries between us.

Provisional lists. Expect small changes in the next couple weeks.

Five albums this year entered my top 100 all time, while one or two songs did the same. Run the Jewels 2 is actually knocking on the door to my all time top 20. That makes it my fifth favorite rap album ever and second favorite rap album not made by Kanye West. I'll even say that it may have the most interesting beats from any hip-hop album I've yet heard. And I haven't heard chemistry that perfect since the Beastie Boys. There aren't enough great things I can say about it. It ran away with my number one this year while "Do You" did the same on the songs side of things.

Edit: Run the Jewels is now in my all time top 20 (18th to be exact).

I'm fairly certain I voted for this last year, but if I can vote for it again I will.


Those are really awesome lists. I especially love the fact that Leon Vynehall's amazing It's Just (House of Dupree is in there. It starts with a quote from Paris is Burning, and then moves onto 8 minutes of pure bliss.

Wish you had dropped this sooner so I had more time to catch up. Even after looking at dozens (hundreds?) of EOY lists I've never heard of four or five of these.

Andy Stott and Ariel Pink are two that I am higher on than you, but not surprisingly Swans / Dean Blunt / Todd Terje / D'Angelo will be shared top ten entries between us.


Which of those have you not yet heard? I can recommend based on what you tend to like, it was a really interesting year.

I very much like the Andy Stott, but to me the highlights outweigh the sum of the parts. Still a Top 30 album though, it's no slouch. I'm still on the fence with Ariel Pink -- pom pom was my favorite of his, but it still seems too self-consciously wacky to me at times. There is no doubting his talent.

I was a little surprised you didn't namecheck Flying Lotus ... I thought You're Dead! was a real return to form for him, and nearly on par with Cosmogramma. Of course I love all the jazz in there, so that's my bias.

Looking forward to your list...

I'm fairly certain I voted for this last year, but if I can vote for it again I will.


Those are really awesome lists. I especially love the fact that Leon Vynehall's amazing It's Just (House of Dupree is in there. It starts with a quote from Paris is Burning, and then moves onto 8 minutes of pure bliss.


Yep, great lists, especially love the albums -- Wadada, Kasai Allstars, and Become Ocean!

Dan, wanted to mention that Jeff's number 8, attributed to the performing orchestra, is the same as my number 1, attributed to the composer. Incidentally, an unbelievably beautiful and moving piece.

Dan: I wanted to let you know that I'll be making a few edits to my list tomorrow, due mainly to the album sonofsamiam just mentioned. I somehow missed it on Jeff’s list, but I’m thrilled that someone else has mentioned “Become Ocean,” which I’ve been listening to a lot over the past week. The Pulitzer-Prize winning album combines two qualities I have an affinity for: modern classical and musical pieces that mimic the qualities of their titles. (A great pop example would be “Glass” by Bat For Lashes, with its shimmering, fragile sound.) There are also a few other titles I’ve added, so I’ll let you know when I’ve updated my list.

Thanks for notifying me about changes / future changes to lists. Also, thanks for the clarification regarding Become Ocean (which, after scanning a few classical lists, seems to be the most acclaimed classical recording of 2014).

Just wanted to let you know that I'm aware of your posts.
Let's make this a good year.

I wasn't going to bother with a songs list this year since I seldom share a lot of song choices with the forum. Dan makes a good point that the consensus list is seldom as interesting as the individual lists, and it seems there is no consensus run away favourite this year, so I may as well add my two cents. Maybe I'll impact the 49th place song. :whistle:

    2. Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra | Austerity Blues
    3. Phantogram | Blackout Days
