Rllmuk's Favourite Albums of 2014 - List Thread (open until 31 December)


Recommended Posts

This is a companion thread to http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/282160-rllmuks-favourite-albums-of-2014-discussion-thread/- if you've already posted there and would like your favourites to be part of the compiled list, please post your results here - feel free to list up to 10 albums - in this format:

Position - Artist - Album
for example,

01 - Mica Levi - Under The Skin OST
02 - Aphex Twin - Syro
03 - St. Vincent - St. Vincent

PLEASE DON'T POST ANY OPINIONS OR RESPONSES TO OTHER FORUMITES' CHOICES IN THIS THREAD - you can do that in http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/282160-rllmuks-favourite-albums-of-2014-discussion-thread/

The spaces and hyphens between position, artist and album are really important as it means that I can import the text straight into Excel without having to piss about with reformatting, and also I can reuse the 2008/2009/2010/2011/2012/2013 spreadsheet ;-) . I'll leave this thread running until the end of 31 December.

You can edit your list as much as you like - I won't compile them until I close the thread.

If you have any questions then PM me - if the answer is useful to others I'll add it to this post, below.

Q - Are reissues allowed?
A - As long as the reissue date is in 2014, yes.

Q - Are EPs allowed?
A - Yes.
