As 2014 winds down, we can reflect on an eclectic year in rock albums. You had new bands like Nothing More, Crobot, Starset and Islander bringing something fresh and new to the game. There were established acts like Chevelle, Slash and Seether showing they could still deliver some of their best work well into their careers. Acts like Hellyeah and Sixx: A.M. took some creative risks and a host of others also created albums that left their mark on 2014.
But who is the number one? It seems that Richard Kruspe made it to the top this year with his new album “Silent So Long”.
According to Loudwire:
The album offers up a mix of hard rock and industrial that is rock solid from beginning to end, but it’s the songs that boast guest spots that truly shine. ‘Rock City’ featuring Lemmy Kilmister is one of the best rock songs we’ve heard in years, while ‘Hypothetical’ featuring Marilyn Manson is a tour de force. With Peaches and Jonathan Davis among the album’s other guest stars, ‘Silent So Long’ stands out among the best rock albums of 2014.
