Aaron Axelsen’s Top 25 Albums Of 2014 … So Far

By Aaron Axelsen, LIVE 105 Music Director

This year is flying by at a light speed pace and in recognition of hitting the halfway mark of 2014 I’ve compiled a list of my top 25 albums so far.

This list has been tabulated by several factors including my own personal favorite releases, positive listener reaction generated by texts and emails from new releases played on our Soundcheck new music show and finally, I used the most recent biggest selling albums of 2014 from Amoeba Records, San Francisco.
