As you might have noticed there is a system to this thread, and we do it every year, yes.

- A top thirty will be formed, and if necessary, a minimum number of votes will be required for an album to make the top thirty.
- In case of a tie, the album with the larger number of votes gets precedence. If they are tied in both points and votes, we move to a shootout.
Seems pretty clear to me what the difference is.

Way to get worked up over nothing Any member can start a thread and it's fine, yours was readily accepted, we just have an official thing that we've been doing for several years.

Just because you're not going by "stray dog" anymore, doesn't mean we don't know it's you.

And by know, I just mean strongly assume since the timing and overreacting fit pretty well.

I've enjoyed reading everyone's lists and write-ups so far.

I feel like I need a bit more time to put my list together...still listening to albums. So like Axver, let me know if there's a deadline.

Also, can we include EPs?

Alright time to pull finger on this. As I think I said earlier, this was one hell of a year, especially for shoegaze/dream pop and post-rock/post-metal. I've thrown around a few albums that I don't think have got much or any mention on B&C, so I've noted genres in case anybody who really liked, say, the new Sleepmakeswaves album wants some more post-rock in a similar vein. 2014 was probably my favourite year in quite some time, and I had great difficulty narrowing down my selections to fifteen and then distributing the points. Probably if I did this again in an hour it would be a bit different - the only part that's absolutely stable is the top four.

1. Alcest: Shelter (15) [shoegaze, dream pop]
2. Eagulls - Eagulls (13) [post-punk]
3. The Hotelier - Home, Like Noplace Is There (12) [emo]
4. White Lung - Deep Fantasy (12) [punk]
5. Agalloch - The Serpent and the Sphere (7) [doom metal, atmospheric black metal]
6. A Sunny Day in Glasgow - Sea When Absent (7) [synth pop, neo-psychedelia, dream pop]
7. Royal Blood - Royal Blood (7) [alt rock]
8. Kerretta - Pirohia (6) [post-metal]
9. Sleepmakeswaves - Love of Cartography (6) [post-rock]
10. Hundreds - Aftermath (4) [ambient pop]
11. Helms Alee - Sleepwalking Sailors (3) [sludge metal]
12. La Dispute - Rooms of the House (3) [post-hardcore]
13. Phantogram - Voices (3) [synth pop, dream pop]
14. Cheatahs - Cheatahs (1) [shoegaze]
15. Little Daylight - Hello Memory (1) [synth pop]

Honourable mentions:
Audrey Fall - Mitau (post-metal)
The Casket Girls - True Love Kills the Fairy Tale (noise pop, dream pop)
Cassie - Old Light EP (post-rock)
DZ Deathrays - Black Rat (garage rock, noise rock)
EMA - The Future's Void (indie rock)
Esben and the Witch - A New Nature (ethereal wave, post-rock)
Gold Zebra - Gold Zebra (synth pop, minimal synth)
Jakob - Sines (post-rock)
Lykke Li - I Never Learn (indie pop)
Maybeshewill - Fair Youth (post-rock)
Neil Finn - Dizzy Heights (pop rock)
Ne Obliviscaris - Citadel (black metal, progressive metal)
Nothing - Guilty of Everything (shoegaze)
Robert Scott - The Green House (indie rock)
Shihad - FVEY (alt metal)
Tuber - Desert Overcrowded (post-rock)
The War on Drugs - Lost in the Dream (indie rock)
Whirr - Sway (shoegaze)
Wolvhammer - Clawing Into Black Sun (black metal, sludge metal)
2:54 - The Other I (dream pop, shoegaze)
