Τα καλύτερα του 2014

(Αυτή είναι μια εκκρεμότητα που με ταλαιπωρεί από την αρχή της χρονιάς. Φάκιν ψυχαναγκασμοί.)

Δεν τα πάω καλά με τις λίστες. Λατρεύω την καταγραφή και την αρχειοθέτηση ακόμη και των πιο μικρών πραγμάτων, όμως η αξιολογική κατάταξη με γαμάει. Έτσι, σκέφτηκα φέτος να ακολουθήσω τη λογική των λογοτεχνικών βραβείων: Considerations, longlist, shortlist, album of the year. Without further ado λοιπόν, here goes:
