December 30th, 2014 by bsradmin

At the end of every year since the dawn of time, critics and pundits around the world tell us what works of art they liked in the past year (or rather, they tell us what we should have liked in the past year – since, after all, it’s their job). There were many mentions of Bloodshot releases in said best-of lists at the end of 2014, so here is a guide, organized by album, in order of release date, to the critics’ Bloodshot picks. They like us! They really like us!
