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.

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"?

wow, how did you discover Ingus Baušķenieks?! I'd imagine this artist would be quite obscure even on non-mainstream outlets..

Legendary figure here, btw. Make sure to check out Dzeltenie Pastnieki (these guys started in 1979 and were basically new wave/ reggae pioneers in USSR)- you will certainly like most of their stuff.

The compilation was found through tons of research. I basically looked at every 2018 list on rym that sparked my interest.

Sorry for the slow updates. Gotta adjust to working :p

I should probably explain the Caretaker 6 album project. It's about Alzheimer's. Samples of 20s and 30s jazz music is used to represent memories. The first part was normal, but it slowly becomes more and more "off". For part 4, it just becomes chaos. In part 5, which will be posted in the top 10, it reaches the point where it's pretty much just noise. Never had such a huge emotional reaction when listening to something. If I ever get Alzheimer's, just euthanize me.

Of yours I've only listened to one (Isolation) and sampled a few others (Lil B's album + your #2 and #1). My own top 20 probably doesn't deserve it's own thread, so I'll just post it here:

Literally all of my top 4 brought me to tears this year and #5 came damn close too. Either I'm getting more emotional as I get older (...it's possible <_< ) or it was a great year for music.

1. Negro Swan (Blood Orange) (listen - Charcoal Baby)
2. Dirty Computer (Janelle Monáe) (listen - Make Me Feel)
3. Golden Hour (Kacey Musgraves) (listen - Oh, What A World)
4. CARE FOR ME (Saba) (listen - PROM / KING)
5. Room 25 (Noname) (listen - Don't Forget About Me)
6. DiCaprio 2 (J.I.D.) (listen - Off Deez)
7. East Atlanta Love Letter (6LACK) (listen - East Atlanta Love Letter)
8. Isolation (Kali Uchis) (listen - Nuestro Planeta)
9. Gangin' (SOB X RBE) (listen - Always)
10. Bottle It In (Kurt Vile) (listen - Bassackwards)

11. Oxnard (Anderson .Paak) (listen - TINTS)
12. NØIR (Smino) (listen - KOVERT)
13. Testing (A$AP Rocky) (listen - Gunz N Butter) NSFW
14. EVERYTHING IS LOVE (The Carters) (listen - BOSS)
15. Victory Lap (Nipsey Hussle) (listen - Hussle & Motivate)
16. ASTROWORLD (Travis Scott) (listen - STARGAZING)
17. Singularity (Jon Hopkins) (listen - Emerald Rush)
18. Tana Talk 3 (B.E.N.N.Y. The Butcher) (listen - '97 Hov)
19. El mal querer (Rosalía) (listen - MALAMENTE (Cap.1: Augurio))
20. FM! (Vince Staples) (listen - Run the Bands)

Overlaps: 1! Here's to Kali :cheers:
