...is Beck http://www.mojo4music.com/17483/50-best-albums-2014-final-score/
Mojo really shouldn't be allowed to choose an album of the year until 20 years later, to be internally consistent.
would that still count?
because they were so underwhelming.
I'm no Mojo reader, but their top 10 includes The Bug, FKA Twigs, Julie Byrne, St Vincent and Sleaford Mods. The only records in the top 10 that your comment applies to are Jack White and Beck.
I don't think it's that bad a list from a mainstream print magazine.
That Mojo understands the brilliance and importance of Sleaford Mods better than DIS.
the new Beck album was ace.
actually going through their top 50 i think my music taste is more 'mojo' than any other publication. err
and one of those was Fly Lo, which wouldn't feature in my top picks of the year; his weakest album to date.
Still need to hear Morning Phase.
to represent the best music this year. But it's a decent list with lot's of great choices on it.
to put the Pixies album on there.
by putting U2 and the disappointing Pixies album.

IMO the Mojo list is more interesting than Q (6 from 50 for Mojo for me, 4 from 50 from Q - but that's not the point, just seems generally more varied with less ho-hum albums from established artists).
Surprised Bruce Springsteen didn't make either list, not that I've heard it, just assumed he'd be in these aoty.
