The Guardian’s Top 40 Albums of 2014

Sleaford Mods at their US debut (more by PSquared)

The Guardian has been sloooowwwlllyyyy revealing their Top 40 Albums of 2014, having rolled out the top 10 one by one over the past 10 days. If you’ve been following along, you probably already guessed their #1 by now, but if not you can browse their full list of 40 below. It’s got a lot of this year’s list regulars, and like many of the British publications have, it gives some major love to Sleaford Mods (maybe you caught their US debut in NYC?). Also The War On Drugs shuts out Sun Kil Moon once again (they’re not #1 but close). Sorry Koz.

Check out the full list below…
