Best Albums of 2018
« on: December 11, 2018, 01:32:50 PM »
One of my favorite threads of the year! I thought Hicks or Aug would have made it by now, but I'll take the lead I guess. Well, actually I need to finalize my top 10 list first.

Did you hear that, Trey? He's getting annoyed. Enough with the effects already.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

Nice, Ross From Friends is legit. Jon Hopkins was kind of disappointing for me after the genius of Immunity.

You definitely should check that SCNTST and his other project Skee Mask if you havenít yet.

Currents - I Let The Devil In



Rita Ora - Phoenix



Atreyu - In Our Wake



YG - Stay Dangerous



Leon Bridges - Good Thing



Brandi Carlile - By The Way, I Forgive You



Mumford and Sons - Delta



Post Malone - Beerbongs & Bentleys

If this is love, I'm never going home..
