40. Lana Del Rey - Ultraviolence

June 17, 2014

The dynamic scarcely shifts ... but that’s the point: get this tangled up in blue, there’s no way out.

36. Flying Lotus - You're Dead!

October 7, 2014
Critic Score
84
33 reviews

This panoramic attempt to make sense of life’s one certainty beyond taxes flutters far above the digital static of 2008’s breakthrough Los Angeles into twisted, ethereal jazz territory.

In taming their wilder side, Future Islands’ ecstatic melancholy has never sounded quite so free.

17. Angel Olsen - Burn Your Fire for No Witness

This superb second album makes a ... dramatic leap forward – vaulting straight from evident promise to its stringent and unarguable realisation.

9. FKA Twigs - LP1

August 12, 2014
Critic Score
86
35 reviews

Even at its most vulnerable ... LP1 is a hugely self-possessed debut, the work of an artist whose vision – not only her visual sense – is strong.

5. St. Vincent - St. Vincent

February 25, 2014
Critic Score
87
34 reviews

2. The War on Drugs - Lost in the Dream

March 18, 2014
Critic Score
86
32 reviews

Right to the final decayed note, Lost In The Dream is a triumph of emotive feel amid neurotic detail: immaculately conceived big music for little people.
