Favorite LPs//2018

2018 was the year of the surprise. I never expected some of these releases to show up on this list, but I’m very happy they did.

These are the fifteen albums I have enjoyed and recommended the most to family, friends, readers, and complete strangers over the year…basically anybody that will entertain my musical musings.

My number one album of the year? I honestly don’t know. I can’t decide between Andrew W.K.’s uplifting You’re Not Alone, Beach House’s gorgeous 7, and Rhye’s intimate Blood. All three are worth of the number one spot and have been on constant rotation all year.

So without further ado, please enjoy my favorite LPs of 2018 (in alphabetical order) below. And if you haven’t done so already, be sure to take a look at my favorite EPs of 2018 when you’re done here.

Cheers.

(31) Days of Good: 12.5.12

The G.O.O.D. Music crew had a huge year with the release of Cruel Summer.  This record top to bottom has some of the best production in hip hop along with some of hip hops biggest names.  “Mercy” is the standout track in my opinion, especially the verses from Pusha T and 2 Chainz.  Pusha T has emerged as the stand out lyricist of the entire crew, combining clever quips with street credibility.

The super hyped Odd Future crew are some of the most blogged about people in hip hop.  Earl Sweatshirt is actually deserving of the hype.  Drawing comparisons to early Nas, Earl has a grim and visceral tone to his music.  The 18 year old MC has definitely established himself as one of the elite up and coming rappers in the rap game.  And when you have a chance, head on over to Stereogum and watch the music video that dropped yesterday.

Just add the stats of this track and I’m sold: Kendrick Lamar + Drake + a Janet Jackson sample. There are a lot of great cuts from Kendrick Lamar’s major label debut and follow up to his majorly successful mix tape Section.80, but this might be my favorite.
