Albums | Marc Farr

prettyreckless 150From ethereal goth to pure hard rock, this year’s list is a plethora of different genres. Many great albums were released in 2014, so here is my look at the best of the year.


  1. The Pretty Reckless: Going to Hell (Razor & Tie) | With every track standing on its own, Going to Hell raised the bar quite high in 2014.
  2. Nostalghia: Chrysalis (Ingrooves) | Ethereal and moody, the debut album shines bright with melody and meaning.
  3. Gemini Syndrome: Lux (Warner Bros.) | From metal’s newest sensations, Lux offers some of the finest nu metal to be heard.
  4. Tori Amos: Unrepentant Geraldines (Mercury Classics) | Elegant and baroque, Amos’s newest opus is a return to her classic style.
  5. Stevie Nicks: 24 Karat Gold – Songs from the Vault (Reprise) | Featuring songs from her vaults, some going back 30 years, Miss Nicks reminds us why she is still the Gold Dust Woman.
  6. Tesla: Simplicity (Tesla Electric Co.) | Simple is the theme here, and Tesla pulls it off brilliantly.
  7. The Glitch Mob: Love, Death, Immortality (Glass Air) | Electronic music par excellence.
  8. Davey Suicide: Worldwide Suicide (Standby) | The sophomore effort from the band rocks heavy and hard, placing Suicide & Co. at the top of their genre.
  9. Black Veil Brides: s/t (Republic) | Metal’s newest bad boys break through to the big time with a heavy masterpiece.
  10. The Casket Girls: True Love Kills the Fairytale (Graveface Records & Curiosities) | Goth sisters Phaedra and Elsa Greene get under your skin on their second full-length album. | Marc Farr
