2014 Album Reviews

In terms of grading, I mostly grade albums in the 7 to 9 area of the 0 to 10 scale. An album that gets a 10 is very rare, and must be a true classic. My favorites of the year will most likely be 8.5 to 9s. This means that the album went much above my expectations. 8s mean that the album went a little above my expectations. A 7 means an album met my expectations. A 6 means that the album was under my expectations. Anything lower should definitely show signs that the album was nothing new or did not contribute much enjoyment. The albums will be posted in no particular order, and then once all the reviews have been completed, I will then post an order of my favorites.
