October is among us my friends and fellow music enthusiasts. There is no shortage of new albums being released. That said, some project stick out more than others, and that doesn’t necessarily mean every ‘bandwagon’ act necessarily stands out (at least to this guy right here). That said, here are 10 of my personal, most anticipated music releases in October 2014. The top three are incredibly strong, particularly #1.

1) Hozier, Hozier (10/7)

This Irish singer/songwriter had me at “Take Me To Church.” Cue up the sevenfold amen please.

2) Taylor Swift, 1989 (10/27)

I’ve had some choice words for Taylor Swift, but I can’t deny I’m always interested to see what she’ll do next or who… never mind.

3) Logic, Under Pressure (10/21)

4) Weezer, Everything Will Be Alright in the End (10/7)

The hipsters’ didn’t blow me away with their last set Hurley, but I’m excited to see what direction Rivers Cuomo and company go this round.

5) Jessie J, Sweet Talker (10/14)

“Bang Bang” is enough to make Jessie J’s second stateside album a must-have for my collection. 

6) The Game, Blood Moon: Year of the Wolf (10/14)

Topping the superb, if blasphemous Jesus Piece will be difficult for The Game, who had Fox News buzzing on his last outing.

7) Aretha Franklin, Aretha Franklin Sings The Great Diva Classics (10/21)

While Franklin’s stance as the ‘Queen of Soul’ is enough to excite me everytime a new album is arriving, Franklin’s cover of “Rolling in the Deep” is what piques my interest in the set.

8) Florida Georgia Line, Anything Goes (10/14)

Bro-country is ‘the hit’ right now, so one of the most bro-country act’s new album definitely captures my attention.

9) Andrea Bocelli, Opera, The Ultimate Collection (10/21)

Okay, okay, opera isn’t exactly the go-to that makes me jump up and down, but the beauty of Andrea Bocelli’s tenor is undeniable, album in and album out.

10) You+Me, Rose Ave. (10/14)

The tenth choice was a crapshoot – do you go bandwagon or go outside the box – so I went with P!nk’s collaborative project with Dallas Green, You+Me.
