Once again, it's that time of the year when music publications round up their favorite, and best-reviewed, releases of the year. St. Vincent and Spoon's 2014 albums (St. Vincent and They Want My Soul, respectively) certainly stood out, appearing on several major lists, including Rolling Stone's "50 Best Albums of 2014."



Rolling Stone rated St. Vincent #4 on the year, hailing, "After her string of increasingly excellent records, indie guitar heroine Annie Clark's fourth solo album felt like a coronation: a masterful set of skewed but sticky pop hooks, subtly sexy electro-funk grooves and Dada poetry that aches for real. And her fiery guitar solos are sharper and more surprising than ever. Bow down."



Spoon's They Want My Soul received #29, as Rolling Stone lauded, "Vintage ooh-las, art-brut rhythm guitar and head-crack drum beats fit together like idealized Ikea furniture on the latest jewel from Britt Daniel's crew; it's all clean lines and formal balance. And co-producer Dave Fridmann's discreet splashes of color and texture add new flavor to the minimalist feng shui."
