Welcome to 2015. 2014 was an interesting year in music, with heaps of great new music and lots of new discoveries. And a lot of sad departures to the great gig in the sky as well.
I'm not about to summarise the year or post the 10 best albums or whatever.
I'll let the playlist below do that for me. Where Frank Zappa once said "Shut Up and play your guitar", we'll let the music do the talking.
Here is the highlights of all our playlists from 2014. 256 tracks to highlight all the great music and classics from artists who have moved on from this life.
Turn it up and play it loud.
