15. FKA twigs - LP1

August 12, 2014
Critic Score
86
40 reviews

In the end, LP1 is probably the most singular pop album of the year. It's testament to how emotionally affecting one person's realised vision can be.

13. Dean Blunt - Black Metal

November 3, 2014
Critic Score
77
17 reviews

Blunt is often called a "prankster" for his confusing and intentionally distracting antics. With Black Metal, he's pulled a fast one on us by delivering something so intimate. 

12. Todd Terje - It's Album Time

April 8, 2014
Critic Score
81
26 reviews

Across its 60 minutes, there are loose-hipped lounge tracks, funky jazz noodlings, Italo epics and humid piano house stormers. All of this is stitched into such a heady trip of sonic extravagance it's sometimes hard to stop and draw a breath.

10. Moodymann - Moodymann

9. Joey Anderson - After Forever

6. The Bug - Angels and Devils

August 25, 2014

17 reviews

Angels & Devils marks an evolution of the sound that made London Zoo a classic.

5. Objekt - Flatland

4. Aphex Twin - Syro

September 23, 2014
Critic Score
85
33 reviews

Aphex Twin's return, Syro, bears a 2014 release date, and it might end up as the year's best album. But that feels entirely incidental—it sounds like nothing else this year, or the year before, or the year before that one.

3. Gesloten Cirkel - Submit X

April 28, 2014
Critic Score

2 reviews

2. HTRK - Psychic 9-5 Club

April 1, 2014
Critic Score

1. Andy Stott - Faith in Strangers

November 18, 2014
Critic Score
81
16 reviews

Even at its darkest and furthest out, Faith In Strangers is as warm and engaging as albums that make standard inroads to listeners' hearts.
