robpal's 2014 as it goes...

My list of 2014 likes (to be expanded). Notes can and will change during the year, since I like listening to albums multiple times and have a really good view before the final note.

I'd say 3/5 is my default note, just an okay CD with nothing spectacular.

1. Soen - Tellurian
2. Opeth - Pale Communion
3. Evergrey - Hymns For The Broken
4. Ne Obliviscaris - Citadel
5. Threshold - For The Journey
