Rolling Stone has issued its choices for the top 50 albums of 2014.

The magazine's No. 1 pick? U2's "Songs of Innocence".

Really? The album that pissed off a lot of folks because it was dumped into their iTunes whether they wanted it or not? Yep. That alone makes me think there's going to be a lot of disagreement over this list.

From Rolling Stone:

2014 was another phenomenal year for music, illuminating darkness when it often seemed that the only light was from buildings burning in Ferguson, Missouri. Veterans like U2, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Jackson Browne and Leonard Cohen were showing the youngsters how it's done, but classic rock was being revived in more unlikely ways, too. ...
