Top 100 Music Albums of 2018 by travelful (2019)

« View previous chartView next chart »

2018 snapshot

Every album I listen to will be included on here, even if I hated it. You may also notice some higher rated albums in the comments, while some albums I hated are still featured in the chart. This is because I create my yearly charts as "snapshots" of the music scene from that year. From these I create my decade charts, where you will find no filler. Basically anything rated 60% or higher I recommend depending on your tastes.

Enjoy! 2018 has been an amazing year for music.

Steel MoguUnited Kingdom Iglooghost
Wonky UK Bass

Impressive UK Bass. Iglooghost released two EP's this summer but I'm only going to include this one to leave room to include another album and because I like the album cover better. Check out the other EP Clear Tamei it's just as good as this one.

Both Clear Tamei and Steel Mogu I rate as a light-decent 8

SwimmingUnited States Mac Miller
Pop rap, alternative r&b

I always like Mac Miller more than the average album hobbyist. I grew up listening to Mac with my friends and have countless amazing memories with his music. Faces is one of my favorite mixtapes ever, and you need to listen to it if you haven't already. Breakup and self reflection are common themes here, and overall the album works and improves significantly from his previous album 'Divine Feminine'.

Rest In Peace Mac. Thanks for all the great memories.

Favorite track: 2009

Your Queen Is A ReptileUnited Kingdom Sons Of Kemet
From my "discovering a genre: jazz" chart.

"Afro-jazz

Listened to this during my 2018 listening project, and it's one of the best albums of the year as I write this (May 9). I love how tribal this gets and I can feel the protest in the instruments. The percussion really stands out to me on this. They even got Congo Natty on here for a dub track, which is what really pulled me in after I was unsure after the first track. Certain parts get a bit too dense for me, but overall this is fantastic. Also this album cover is amazing."
