Top 50 Records of 2014

First off, I would like to say that I’m sorry for being so late on this list this year.  While it is true that 2015 is a strong 3 months in, I still would like to present my top 50 albums of 2014.  This was a bit of a down year for me, especially when comparing it to the last few years.  With that being said, there were still some great records that came out, and I strongly back each album on this list.  Enjoy!
