That Special Record's 50 Favourite Albums of 2014

2014 was a sensational year for electronic music LPs. We could write a super long reflection on how 2014 was a sensational year for electronic music LPs, especially for ambient and techno and blah blah blah but That Special Record ain't no electronic music magazine, so we'll leave that to the professional music reviewers out there. Instead we selected 50 essential albums released in 2014 and we'll let the music speak for itself.
