    1.
    SERIOUSLY, do yourself a favor and give this one a whirl. It's only like 24 min long, and it is UTTERLY revolutionary. It's EXTREMELY experimental beats with insanely personal, dark poetry. I think the album's name is meant to be ironic, as there isn't a single traditional rap song on this thing. It has WAY more in common with the weirdest Tricky songs than any hip hop ive ever heard (and I've heard a LOT.) I think what it is is the first like, surrealist art rap album.
    This is DEFINITELY my album of the year.

    2. Bad Witch

    3.

    4. Crimesididntcommit: Don't Wake Up


    APC: Eat the Elephant

    MF DOOM and CZARFACE: CZARFACE meets METALFACE (the caps arent a mistake; this is how both acts stylize their names)

    The Prodigy: No Tourists

    Kids See Ghosts

    Edit:
    Removed numbers after the first four; they are the only ones in a definite order.
    added links for the three most people don't seem to know about. check them out, for real. i saw where Noname is pretty torn up about her record not even cracking the top 200. and it's SOOOOOO fucking good

    I've heard of maybe seven of the artists/bands mentioned. This is a song from their number one pick:

    Meh. Not bad, not really my thing either.

    I feel like the end-of-year music lists these days are so esoteric that it's like the publications are being paid by record labels to mention these albums, like a new form of payola. I mean, I'm only kidding, but come the fuck on.

    No particular order or anything at the moment, and I'm well past the point of ranking everything top to bottom, but my top five would look something like:

    Daughters - 'You Won't Get What You Want'
    Lingua Ignota - 'All Bitches Die'
    Nine Inch Nails - 'Bad Witch'
    The Body - 'I Have Fought Against It, But I Can't Any Longer'
    liť - 'Hounds'

    With consideration given to...

    Emma Ruth Rundle - 'On Dark Horses'
    Jaye Jayle - 'No Trail and Other Unholy Paths'
    Kimbra - 'Primal Heart'
    Queen Kwong - 'Love Me to Death'
    Death Grips - 'Year of the Snitch'
    Sleep - 'The Sciences'
    Snail Mail - 'Lush'
    The Body/Uniform - 'Mental Wounds Not Healing'
    The Black Queen - 'Infinite Games'
    Fucked and Bound - 'Suffrage'
    C.H.E.W. - 'Feeding Frenzy'
    Deafheaven - 'Ordinary Corrupt Human Love'
    Black Moth Super Rainbow - 'Panic Blooms'
    Haunted Horses - 'Cold Medicine'
    Post/Boredom - 'Shaking Hands With Clients'
    Daniel Avery - 'Song for Alpha'

    I mean, that is basically what the situation is nowadays. No way is anyone getting an album on Pitchfork unless they've got a serious publicist, and those do not come cheap.

    Recently revisited the debut album from Loma (supergroup of sorts feat. Jonathan Meiburg from Shearwater + the band Cross Record) after Steven Wilson mentioned it as one of his 2018 faves, and it's still a stunner. Some great stuff. Definitely check it out!

    is that you with the stunning beard? Because that's fan-fucking -tastic if it is.

    That being said, dude, didn't Judgement Night come out in like...93? 94?
    Aren't we talking about albums from THIS year?

    What am I missing here?

    Yup, that's me.
    I take the topic to mean "Favourite albums that I picked up in 2018"... as such, I picked up Judgement Night this year, so it counts in my head. If it meant just albums that came out for the first time in 2018, yeeah... that'd be a different list (but half would stay, they came out in 2018).

    It's been a very good year for music, and a very very good year for me discovering more new music and expanding my horizons. In no particular order here's my favourites:

    Orbital - Monsters Exist (Solid album from the brothers, the deluxe version is a treat with all the extra tunes, and they backed it up with a solid live show)
    Unknown Mortal Orchestra - Sex & Food (so funky and I get some Tame Impala vibes, been replaying this one a lot recently)
    Hookworms - Microshift (Absolutely mind-blowing, even if it sucks the singer allegedley did some fucked up shit and the band recently split because of it)
    Bill Ryder Jones - Yawn (Probably my absolute favourite record of the year, it really hits hard and gets me right in the feels)
    Boy Azooga - 1, 2, Kung Fu (Very strong debut and cohesive record, can't wait to hear more from these guys)
    Skee Mask - Compro (an electronic journey distilled into a record, his first one was good but this one took it to another level)
    Connan Mockasin - JASSBUSTERS (This one took a while to click, but hearing it over and over and then hearing it performed live made the penny drop for me)
    BC Camplight - Deportation Blues (A weird, zany kinda record, made me explore this guys back catalogue)
    Aphex Twin - Collapse (Easily some of the finest Aphex ever recorded to my ears, although only an EP. Makes me want more)
    Inwards - Diesel (A really solid debut from an electronic artist that I now want to hear a lot more of next year)
    Ross From Friends - Family Portrait (Loved this guys stuff since he came about, and the album is really really good)
    Daniel Avery - Song For Alpha (Deep, rich solid second record from DA)
    NIN - Bad Witch (Some of the best NIN I've heard in years)
    Big Red Machine - Big Red Machine (More Justin Vernon is ALWAYS appreciated)
