The Best of 2018

Last year we did a countdown of our top albums of 2017 with Odd Boat by Flatfoot 56 taking the top spot.

That was loads of fun so now it is time for the Best of 2018. This has been a friggin tough one to call. This list started in February this year and has been changed so many times I can’t count. The top spot I was convinced was set for a long time and then it changed and changed back and then back again. Every release would cause more debate because the standard of music has been unbelievably good.

Without anymore rambling in reverse order:
