Favourite Music // 2014 Edition

Forums - Music Discussion - Favourite Music // 2014 Edition

1. Behemoth - The Satanist
2. Darkspace - Dark Space III I
3. Ne Obliviscaris - Citadel
4. Hans Zimmer - Interstellar

To be brutally honest this is the worst year for music since the early/mid-50's. I tried to come up with five great albums for 2014 and I simply couldn't do it. I'm not really anticipating anything from 2015 :/

NFG - Resurrection was an incredible return to form for them after Radiosurgery (imo they're weakest record). I went to see them live in November and they where fucking incredible (State champs where the best live band there that night tho).

Mest - Broken Down, such a good record, I grew up listening to Mest so I was sad to see them break up. But after lasts years not what you expected and now this (even tho this is just an acoustic record of songs they've already done) I guess they're really back?

Taking Back Sunday - Happiness is, flicker fade was my second Most listened to song last year only being beaten by first reaction after falling through the ice by LA Dispute (and considering they make my number 1 second Most played song is a good thing) I've never been the biggest fan of TBS but this record would have made my top 5 if my taste in music hadn't shifted from mainly rock and pop punk to post hardcore.


I am glad that Mest is back, they were my favourite band back when I was a teenager, however their break up led myself to moving on.
Now that they are back and still playing some excellent tunes I am very excited for what the future holds for them. They have announced that they are doing some sort of Kickstarter project this year, so it will likely be a project to fund their new album as they are an independent band now.

I have enjoyed all of New Found Glory's albums, however I am probably a little biased due to my nostalgia for them. I have seen them live twice. The first time I saw them they were headlining with Taking Back Sunday. Both are excellent live bands - Mest too.

Taking Back Sunday have really grown as a band. Their lates tunes compared to their earlier stuff is quite noticeable. They almost seem like a different band now.

What post hardcore bands are you into? I am also a very big fan of the genre (and most hardcore genres for that matter). Hence why I listen to The Used, Story of the Year, Pierce the Veil, Behind Crimson Eyes and so on.

"Wheel me out to the curb for garbage day"

I don't think I purchased any full albums last year... Nothing seems to catch my attention much anymore.

I am most looking forward to Jars of Clay's rerelease of the Long Fall Back to Earth (best album ever!!!)

#2 Linkin Park - The Hunting Party

 

Man I totally dig Linkin Park, I'm even going to see them in February...but I gotta say I didn't love the Hunting Party. Is there a song or two you can recommend from it that you really liked? I must admit I haven't listend to it in great depth but my intial listen didn't wow me. 



Only full album I bought and liked it as a whole was "Ultraviolence" (Lana Del Rey)
The only other album that came close was "Broke With Expensive Taste" (Azealia Banks)

Looking forward to "Honeymoon" (Lana Del Rey) Lol. 😜

I actually liked them all, I think it's their 3rd best album (only below the first 2). My favourites from it would be Wastelands, Until It's Gone and Final Masquerade. Give them a go and I hope you enjoy them



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I agree that 2014 was incredible for music, IMO one of the best years ever

My top 5:
#5 sukekiyo - IMMORTALIS

#4 Royal Blood - Royal Blood

#3 Nickelback - No Fixed Address

#2 Linkin Park - The Hunting Party

#1 DIR EN GREY - ARCHE

And my most anticipated for 2015:
Imagine Dragons - Smoke + Mirrors
ONE OK ROCK - 35XXXV

Didn't expect to see Sukekiyo mentioned here! I only found out about them because someone mentioned Chihiro Onitsuka was in a video of theirs, but now I'm a fan. Cool mention.

hehe, they share the same vocalist with my #1 so it was a fairly easy pick
