1.War on Drugs - Lost in the Dream

My play count on this album would be hovering around the 100 mark and still I never tire of it.

Could be in my top five of all time.

Agreed.

I've heard every album on LMP's list except for TV Girl. Never heard of them. I like enough of LMP's albums that I think I'll give it a shot.

Love this album too. The vinyl version sounds great and I love the MP3 download card for iPod's.

Some of the best albums of 2014 sank into oblivion without many people acknowledging them. For instance, the dream pop and post-rock band from Iceland, Low Roar put out a great album called, 0, this year. Also the dream pop band from Finland, Delay Trees put out a great album, Readymade. Speaking of dream pop, Pure X and Alcest also put out great dream pop albums. This year has gone to dream pop in my opinion. The more popular choices dream pop this year are The War On Drugs and Real Estate which were great but I personally prefer the deeper cuts a little more.

Please check out this videos.

Dunno about the order, but these are probably my favorite 10 albums of the year:

Elbow - The Takeoff and Landing of Everything
First Aid Kit - Stay Gold
Hozier - Hozier
Jungle - Jungle
Mr. Little Jeans - Pocketknife
Sia - 1000 Forms of Fear
St. Vincent - St. Vincent
Tove Lo - Queen of the Clouds
Tycho - Awake
The War On Drugs - Lost In the Dream


U2 would probably make the cut if I hadn't decided to just cut it off at 10 for the sake of brevity.

Biggest Disappointments:

Coldplay - Ghost Stories
Royksopp and Robyn - Do It Again (I thought I was going to like that EP a lot more.)

The Jenny Lewis & Ryan Adams make for a great one-two punch considering Adams' Yoda-like involvement in producing The Voyager. The stories that Lewis tells on this Grantland pod are bonkers: http://grantland.com/hollywood-prosp...t-jenny-lewis/

TV Girl is if Washed Out and a non-insufferable Vampire Weekend had a sexy baby. This is the jam of the record:
