The 10 Most Overlooked Albums of 2014

Every year we all rush to start making our end-of-the-year bests lists, and inevitably, we miss a few. Usually the comments section will let us know how bad we fucked up by not including such and such record, usually one we didn't like to begin with, often by some forgotten '80s band nobody except the author cares about, but every now and then some legitimately great records will fall by the wayside.

Since most of us have turned in our year-end lists by now, it's time we turn our attention to those albums that nobody talked a lot about but that deserve every bit of the recognition all those Top 10 picks got. Here are the best, most overlooked releases of 2014 for your listening pleasure.
