Les meilleurs albums de 2014 selon les médias anglo-saxons

Par Marc Zisman |

Les grands médias anglo-saxons – web et presse – commencent à publier leur Top 50 des meilleurs albums de l’année 2014 : pour Pitchfork, Uncut, Mojo, Q Magazine, le NME, Spin, Paste, Stereogum, Gorilla vs. Bear et Rolling Stone, les gagnants sont...

A quelques semaines de la mort de 2014, les sélections des meilleurs albums de l’année pointent le bout de leur nez dans les médias anglo-saxons, presse comme web. Un album se détache clairement du lot : l'excellent Lost In The Dream de The War On Drugs paru chez Secretly Canadian en mars dernier. Non seulement la nouvelle merveille conçue par Adam Granduciel, cerveau du groupe, est présente dans tous les tops, mais elle occupe la première place de quatre d'entre-eux (Q, Uncut, Spin et Paste) et se retrouve également dans le tiercé de tête de quatre autres classements (NME, Pitchfork, Mojo et Stereogum) !

En Angleterre, les mensuels Uncut, Mojo et Q, l'hebdomadaire NME et, aux États-Unis, le magazine culturel digital Paste, les influents webzines musicaux Pitchfork, Gorilla vs. Bear et Stereogum et les indéboulonnables mensuels comme Rolling Stone et Spin ont lâché leurs Top 50 de 2014 respectifs. Comme chaque année, certains albums figurent dans quasiment toutes ces listes comme, au hasard, St. Vincent de St. Vincent, Run The Jewels 2 de Run The Jewels ou bien encore Syro d'Aphex Twin... Bref, les sélections sont stylistiquement éclectiques et contiennent tant les incontournables que quelques surprises et autres coups de cœur.
