Noisey UK's 25 Best Albums of 2014: 25-11

The albums that made 2014 that little bit more adventurous than any other year in history
December 9, 2014, 5:14pm

Earlier this week, we announced our tracks of the year and ever since then we've been subjecting the entire VICE office to the 25-strong playlist, on repeat, at full volume, just as everyone is coming in with their christmas party hangovers. It's getting a bit repetititve to be honest, so today we're expanding the repitoire with our albums of the year, 25 to 11.

It's about as varied a list as you can imagine - I can't imagine Leighton Meester has appeared alongside Sleaford Mods too many times before - but across the board these are albums that didn't just rely on pastiche and the past, all of them have done their little bit to give music some forward momentum, to make 2014 that little bit more adventurous than any other year in history.
