So many albums being reviewed here this year – doing my best to keep up. And to find things. And still reacting to material that was released in 2013 – so this is the first in a series of digests – here you can click on this link to be taken to a summary of all the best reviews I wrote for the month of January, 2014. By best I mean not just positive but the rave reviews, the albums I reckon are worth hearing; worth having.
You’ll find reissues, compilations, EPs and live albums – as well as full-length studio releases. Most of the material here was released in 2014 but in some cases it was released in 2013 and only made it to me this year – or I only (finally) got to it this year.
