Rllmuk's Favourite Albums of 2018 - List Thread (open until 31 December)

Recommended Posts

 

This is a companion thread to https://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/303773-best-new-music-of-2018 - if you've already posted there and would like your favourites to be part of the compiled list, please post your results here - feel free to list up to 10 albums - in this format:

 

Position - Artist - Album

 

for example,

 

01 - Beak> - >>>
02 - Marie Davidson - Working Class Woman
03 - Tsar B - The Games I Played

 

PLEASE DON'T POST ANY OPINIONS OR RESPONSES - OR NEGS - TO OTHER FORUMITES' CHOICES IN THIS THREAD - you can do that in https://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/303773-best-new-music-of-2018/


The spaces and hyphens between position, artist and album are really important as it means that I can import the text straight into Excel without having to piss about with reformatting, and also I can reuse the 2008/2009/2010/2011/2012/2013/2014/2015/2016/2017 spreadsheet ;-) . I'll leave this thread running until the end of 31 December.

You can edit your list as much as you like - I won't compile them until I close the thread.

 

If you have any questions then PM me - if the answer is useful to others I'll add it to this post, below.

 

Q - Are reissues allowed?
A - As long as the reissue date is in 2018, yes.

Q - Are EPs allowed?
A - Yes.
