The Best So Far in 2014 …

Well fellow earbuds, we’ve reached the halfway mark of the year. It’s been a great year for music so far in my opinion. There has been plenty of music released that can fit any mood imaginable. It’s a bit overwhelming at times. As I listen to new selections, I start to listen to the construction of a song, not just the lyrics. Not that I don’t love lyrics because I do. But there are some artists out there that can create true music and melodies that stand out from the lyrics. It’s kind of like watching a heavily computer generated movie. It’s the special effects that get you not so much the acting. For me, the music behind the song is just as important as the lyrics. They go hand in hand like a doughnut and coffee are to most of us in the morning. So I thought I’d put together a list of albums I have thoroughly enjoyed so far this year. This is definitely going to make my end of the year list quite a challenge because there is SO much good stuff out there. And I don’t mean the pop stufffluff you hear on the radio. Trust me when I say these albums made the cut. And there is truly something for everyone here. If not, then … you must be an alien.
