Top 10 Albums – 2018

Posted on Updated on

I’m not completely in tune to the music world (pun-intended), although I do my best to listen to lots of new music every year. I usually need time for music to sink into my heart and mind to become a favorite and while I find lots of favorite songs each year, finding full albums of amazing tunes is more difficult but incredibly rewarding when you find a gem.

That being said some amazing music was released in 2018 and these are my favorite albums in descending order (so stick around to the end to find out what my favorite was!) Please let me know what I missed (because I missed stuff) and happy new year everyone!
