My favorite albums of 2014/Best Prog albums of 2014

It gave us a purpose, sometimes
It gave us a reason, and a rhyme
Looking for meaning in song
Such inner searching, so long

You’ll never stop, you’re searching for the one you know has died
Is the one you loved returning? The one you left to die

Eternal rains will come
We should say goodbye
And suffer on our own
As all our thoughts were wrong

Top albums of 2014 Collage 1

Hi-ho! For most proggers Opeth’s “Pale Communion” was the most anticipated album of 2014 but not for me. The most anticipated albums for me was Anathema’s “Distant Satellites”, The Pineapple Thief’s “Magnolia” and Yes’s “Heaven & Earth”.  All these anticipated albums haven’t failed my expectations as most people are saying about Yes’s “Heaven & Earth” that it’s disappointing. Well it isn’t, it’s a decent album and needs time plus more listens. Anyway Anathema’s “Distant Satellites”. The Pineapple Thief’s “Magnolia”, Opeth’s “Pale Communion” never fails to aspire ears with well balanced music, mixing and lyrics. You can learn more about Anathema and Anathema’s “Distant Satellites” here: “Anathema’s Distant Satellites, an album which is more alluring than a raw dog“.

    • Haha yeah thanks to you and my favorite bands, they opened new horizons for me. BTW about four of the albums are not prog. I’m thinking about adding Syd Arthur’s Sound Mirror and Messenger’s Illusory Blues to this list too which I found through a twitter friend. Any recommendations by you?
