My Best Albums 2018

group-19

2018 has been a year dominated by Brexit, dance-orientated pop, radio-friendly mediocrity and the BBC whose grip on the music industry grows larger, more influential and tenacious. For me, few releases stood out as masterpieces and overall it’s not been amongst the best of years. That said, I haven’t heard everything although my list is pretty comprehensive, diverse and possibly offers albums that few have actually heard on radio or read about in the media.  Included is the Beatles latest version of the WHITE ALBUM in several formats and which represents the most desirable Christmas gift for fans of great and classic music. The list is not in any particular order.
