    Default Dynamic Top Albums of 2014

    List your top ten (or more) albums of the year here, update as often as necessary. Not designed to be a thread for on-going discussion about albums, or to replace the year end lists threads, but instead is merely a quick reference for on-going recommendations, and for a sense of what other people are listening to. So ideally, one post per person in this thread should be entirely sufficient. If you want to talk about an album someone likes, take it to the 2014 albums thread or another appropriate thread. If the concept works, perhaps we can request a sticky for the thread.

    Edit to answer a few questions: if you want to include an "archive" of your past lists as you go along, feel free. I'll probably just continually edit mine (though it may go beyond 10), but it's up to you. Reissues, sure, have at it if you really want to; the point of this is more to share music, less to make an accounting of "the best" of the year. To the extent you do include reissues, I would suggest pointing it out so people know.

    1) Sun Kil Moon - Benji
    2) The War On Drugs - Lost in the Dream
    3) Drive-By Truckers - English Oceans
    4) Ariel Pink - pom pom
    5) Cymbals Eat Guitars - LOSE
    6) Spoon - They Want My Soul
    7) Angel Olsen - Burn Your Fire For No Witness
    8) Ex Hex - Rips
    9) Aphex Twin - Syro
    10) Mr Twin Sister - Mr Twin Sister

    2) Cloud Nothings - Here and Nowhere Else
    3) Perfect Pussy - Say Yes to Love
    4) Liars - Mess
    5) Cheatahs - Cheatahs
    6) Big Ups - Eighteen Hours of Static
    7) Real Estate - Atlas
    8) Black Dirt Oak - Wawayanda Patent
    9) The Body/Haxan Cloak - I Shall Die Here
    10) Indian - From All Purity
