The G-Man Album of the Year 2014 : 50-1


The G-Man's Top 50 albums of 2014

It's taken some time and threatened to never be, but here are my top 50 albums of the year for 2014. The G-Man blog being a crew of one it's a list purely compiled of records that struck a chord with me throughout the past 12 months. I would have liked to have heard more (e.g. Cate Le Bon would most likely have been in my 2013 list if I had heard it that year) and given quite a number of records a more in-depth "seeing to" but I'm sure that will never change.
