We love hearing what our listeners think are the best albums of the year. It's a fun way to see how our own picks line up with our audience's, and a chance to discover some surprises we may have missed. (There are always surprises we missed).For 2014, our listeners decided St. Vincent's stunning, self-titled release, which came out way back in February, was the best album of the year. No other record came close in our annual poll. St. Vincent had twice as many votes as the next closest contender, Alt-J's This Is All Yours.Beck's gorgeous, meditative Morning Phase came in third, while FKA Twgis' strangely transfixing LP1 and Jack White's bone rattling Lazaretto round out the top five.Below you'll find a playlist with the Top 25 albums chosen by our listeners, along with a more comprehensive list of the top 100 albums. If you'd like to head over to your favorite local record store and go on a shopping spree, here's a downloadable PDF of the Top 100.Thanks for tuning in with us this year, and for being the greatest listeners we could ever hope for!
