Favorite Icon, Full size
With a lot of very good music released throughout the year the exceptional breath taking creations were a little harder to find than in past years. Nevertheless with some very impressive moments including two big hitters Jesse Cook and Enya, once again no one stood out more than Jennifer Thomas’s Winter Symphony. While she was in good company it was without a shadow of a doubt that in spite of the specialty theme her creation was indeed Album of the Year and worth the shining star that she presented to the listening public.

With another solid year in impressive music as always I would like to thank the artists and the labels for willing to risk a critique and also spend part of their promotional budget by investing in a review. This will always be considered an honor and a privilege.

Also, one honorable mention that was missed from 2014: Chad Lawson's The Chopin Variations.
