baa music group (bohemian artists alliance)

News

What a great year of music! So the baa gang got together last night and after much debate, food and drink, and a very good time, picked our favorite top 20 albums of 2014. We threw out a few biggies like Taylor Swift, Black Keys, etc.. just because. 

So really there is no order even though one emerged. If we mispelled something, sorry, its 3:34 am so we're not perfect.

To each of these artists and their labels, Thank You!
