Top 100 Albums of 2018

#1

Post by XxXApathy420XxX » November 25th, 2018, 6:37 pm

My list has finally reached 100 albums. I still have around 200 left on my to listen to list, but I think with a list this big I can stop. This is definitely one of the best years for music.

I'll be counting the Caretaker releases for the year, but I'll only put the entire package on my favourite albums list. It only makes sense if you listen to the whole series as well.

I'll also be adding descriptors as they are a new feature on RYM.

:party: Awesome, going to follow this!

I tried listening to the Lynch & Badalamenti album a while ago and could not make heads or tails of it, will relisten at a later point when I am in the mood.

Good stuff, you can always rely on Art to submit some new stuff that I would probably not find otherwise :)

Koenji Hyakkei, U.S. Girls and Litku Klemetti were of particular interest to me.

I had heard Koenji Hyakkei before, in fact they're on my list, may I offer one track as well, the technical prowess is rather jaw dropping, just listen carefully "beyond" the "chaos" :)

Wow, going to follow this, thanks. I love some of the descriptions haha. Especially things like repetitive, hypnotic, female vocals, psychedelic, lo-fi, ethereal, atmospheric, meditative, nocturnal and electic sounds like music into my ears.

Do you use these descriptions from "rateyourmusic"?
