As is customary – and perhaps inevitable – when each New Year begins, people often look back on the preceding 12 months, reflecting on the way we live our lives and on ways to improve ourselves as time progresses. Among the many ways people reminisce is in formulating lists of the best moments of the last year, and ReGen Magazine is no exception. Therefore, we are proud to present to our readers ReGen‘s Top 20 Albums of 2014, offering a helping of those albums that made a significant impact on music.
