Top-15 EPs of 2014

IT’S MY TOP-15 FAVORITE EPS OF 2014! EPs may not be as long as albums, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t great music on them, right? Here are some of my favorite short collections of tracks that dropped throughout the year. I didn’t get a chance to review all of them, but come away from this list knowing I think they’re all worth checking out.

Top-20 Music Videos of 2014

This is a video of my favorite music videos of 2014!


This is the longest YUNOREVIEW I’ve ever done. Not sure I’ll ever wanna do something like this again, ha! Well, anyway, if a particular artist who released an album, EP, or mixtape earlier this year somehow did not make this list, then you might as well give up hope. I can’t review everything–even if the new Taylor Swift album ain’t bad. I’ll leave it to you to form your own opinions on any releases I have missed.

Speaking of opinions, I wouldn’t take mine in this video all that seriously. I’m pretty indifferent toward most of the albums on this list. Some are very good, and I regret missing them, but others just needed to be avoided to maintain a “normal” mental state. However, I’m not implying that music reviewing is driving me to the brink! I assure you I had very little sanity to begin with.

Thank you for watching! I love you! I wish you the best. I hope your holidays are great, too. Here are the artists that get mentioned in this video:
