My favorite albums of 2014

Congratulations Annie -- you win the steak knives!
Awright, it's December 31, I'm putting this to bed. Without too much elaboration, I'm afraid. Part of the problem with committing one's self to listening to 365 new albums over the course of the year (ended up being 366) is that there's very little time to reflect on them all. I was running a gymnasium when I should have been running a think tank.

Now that this sprint is over, a big goal of mine in 2015 is to actually write about music in a more meaningful way. Production over consumption. I've proven my gluttony. You've seen the melted butter on my bib. Time to hit the treadmill. I won't cover anywhere close to 365 albums in 2015, but hopefully what I do cover will prove once and for all to that punch card machine in your Human Resources department that I'm fully qualified to produce content about music on a full-time basis.

If you have any questions about these albums I'll be around. I have an errand to run, but I'll be around.
