32. Shabazz Palaces - Lese Majesty

July 29, 2014
Critic Score

27 reviews

Shabazz Palaces deserve credit where it’s due for building their sound outward; if Black Up established their status as hip-hop outliers, then Lese Majesty solidifies their place in the pantheon of rap’s oddball geniuses. Long may they reign.

Blunt is simultaneously assured and uncomfortable, offering the clearest glimpse yet of his real emotional state while flatly refusing to ever fully commit to it.

Drone albums are by their nature immersive, but it’s rare to come across one so tempestuous, evocative and compelling from start to finish as Wilderness of Mirrors.

16. FKA Twigs - LP1

August 12, 2014
Critic Score
86
35 reviews

LP1 is far from perfect, but its consistency of tone, its thematic rigour and its commitment to developing a musical grammar all of its own serve to override these momentary weaknesses.

1. Sun Kil Moon - Benji

February 11, 2014

23 reviews

Though Mark Kozelek has few equals when it comes to dislodging lumps in throats, Benji is his most emotionally taxing Sun Kil Moon record by some way.
