The Official B&C Best Albums of 2014 thread

We had a very informal sort of thread set up by someone else, and Peef doesn't seem to be around at the moment, so I'll kick this off. It's waaayyyy late but maybe in mid-Jan sometime we'll have enough lists to produce a ranking.

So!

What are your favourite albums of the year?

You know the drill, but if you don't,

Here are the tally rules:
- You list your top 15 albums.
- You distribute 100 points up among those 15 albums however you see fit. You cannot exceed 15 points for a single album, however.
- 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.

No funny lines about the artists who might top such a poll and no photos of Jeff Goldblum cos I wouldn't know who he is if the whole death thing hadn't have happened.

Did Brokencyde release an album this year?

If they did, we're just wasting our time here.

Has their sound developed at all? Or at the very least have they discovered a cool new word from a Lil Jon song and co-opted it into a fuckwitcore anthem?

Every Brokencyde album ushers in a new era of musical development, each more subtle and layered than the rest. Thom Yorke and Kayne West QUIVER at the thought of their lyrical prowess. QUIVER.

Brokencyde haven't released anything since their "Best Of" in 2012. I'm worried about them. My working assumption right now is that Se7en was arrested for possession, Mikl is in rehab, Antz has taken three jobs to afford child support to four different women and has no time for crunkcore these days, and Phat J has become a born again Christian and is now playing shitty Newsboys covers in a church band.

I bet Se7en was the one sensible kid (his parents loved Seinfeld) who got roped into the band.

I forgot the band members have names. Typically I just call them Asshole 1, Asshole 2 and so on.

I just want to say that I think "Shake It Off" is starting to rival "Love Story" as my favourite Taylor Swift song.

I fucking hate Shake It Off. The lyrics are as childish and painfully self-aware as anything Bono has written lately and the beat sounds like discount Happy.

Style on the other hand is really good, I wish that had been the debut of electropop Taylor.

Careful now, you'll make Mikl cry. He put a lot of time and effort into that stage name.

There was more effort put into that propaganda video than any one of their records.

I wonder how Phat J's solo career is going.

I have my picks ready, but just need to write a little bit about them. Probably within the next week I will have a list.

I will post a list. Probably won't end up writing anything. Too many balls in the air at the moment.
