The publication's 20 Biggest, Boldest Comebacks of 2014 "celebrates the wily veterans who had been gone too long or seemingly lost their way, only to resurface triumphantly." Among those wily veterans are Beck, Slipknot and Sleater-Kinney.

"After suffering from debilitating back pain -- not to mention releasing a string of honorable but un-momentous albums -- Beck rebounded with calm beauty," Rolling Stone says of the singer's latest album, Morning Phase. They're not the only ones who feel that way -- Morning Phase received Grammy nominations for Album of the Year and Best Rock Album, and the album's single, "Blue Moon," was nominated for Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance.

Slipknot is another band to return with a new album after a brief hiatus following 2008's All Hope Is Gone with this year's .5: The Gray Chapter. Even though the new record was the band's first to not feature bassist Paul Gray and drummer Joey Jordinson, it still debuted at number one on the Billboard 200

".5 sounds like it took every moment of that time off to make, presenting a forceful, impassioned study on loss," writes Rolling Stone.

Sleater-Kinney, meanwhile, announced they would be reuniting after calling a hiatus in 2006. The band revealed they will be releasing a new album, No Cities to Love, on January 20, 2015 -- their first since 2005's The Woods.

"In some ways, S-K deciding not to reunite fit perfectly with the tough, principled music they made for a decade," writes Rolling Stone. "But in bigger and more important ways, the news that the trio were getting back together just felt right."
