    The Lucky Moose

    I'm Emotional, I Hug the Block Prestigious

    Notable things about my list this year: a lot of R&B, a lot of women in the top 15 (Jay Z as part of The Carters being the only man in the top 5), a lot of music from non-English speaking countries (including 3 in the top 5), arguably no mainstream Hip Hop (unless you count The Carters and Pusha T), and no Grime/UK Rap/Garage/Jungle album on my list (despite their prominence on my song playlists).

    10 - 15, Ranked

    01. Lary - Hart Fragil (R&B, Germany)
    02. Mariah Carey - Caution (R&B)
    03. Rosalía - El Mal Querer (Flamenco/Pop/R&B, Spain)
    04. The Carters - Everything Is Love (R&B/Hip Hop)
    05. Bad Gyal - Worldwide Angel (Reggaeton/Dancehall/Pop/R&B, Spain)
    06. Gavlyn - Headspace (Hip Hop)
    07. Drangsal - Zores (Post-Punk/New Wave, Germany)
    08. Evidence - Weather Or Not (Hip Hop)
    09. Ruston Kelly - Dying Star (Country)
    10. Curse - Die Farbe Von Wasser (Hip Hop, Germany)
    11. Frank Sinatra - Standing Room Only* (Jazz)
    12. Scotty McCreery - Seasons Change (Country)
    13. Rola - 12:12 (R&B, Germany)
    14. MihTy - MihTy (R&B)
    15. Red Velvet - The Perfect Red Velvet (K-Pop/R&B, South Korea)

    16 - 25, Unranked

    August Greene (Common, Robert Glasper, Karriem Riggins) - August Greene (Hip Hop/Jazz/R&B)
    Teyana Taylor - K.T.S.E. (R&B)
    Black Milk - Fever (Hip Hop)
    Joel Ortiz & Apollo Brown - Mona Lisa (Hip Hop)
    Pusha T - Daytona (Hip Hop)
    Masta Ace & Marco Polo - A Breukelen Story (Hip Hop)
    NIKI - Zephyr (R&B, Indonesia)
    Bun B - Return Of The Trill (Hip Hop)
    Tiny Moving Parts - Swell (Emo)
    Ice Cube - Everythang's Corrupt (Hip Hop)

    Note: Given their placements on my past lists, I wanted to point out that I have not listened to the YG album yet, I haven't had any real time with the Good Charlotte album, I just wasn't a fan of the Kacey Musgraves album, and Kanye's Ye gets an honourable mention because I only loved half of it which isn’t enough for a 20 minute album to make the list.

    *Specifically disc one, “Live At The Sands Hotel And Casino (1966)” with The Count Basie Orchestra.

    FWIW I've been going back and listening through all of my favorite albums trying to make my top-10, and I'm not really sure if she will crack it. I loved the album when it first came out - and it's still great - but I just think this has really been a strong year for a ton of different artists.

    Yeah but looking at some lists of 40 or more from some people here that didn't have her and then seeing some that did make those same lists haha :poop:
  6. bd007h's resident Meg Myers fan #GoSabres/Bills

    She's so slept on it's disappointing. I'm betting a lot of people here haven't even given the album a listen.

    Hi people. In the year of our lord 2018, I got married and started a new job and moved to Kensington, Philadelphia. Our first dance was almost “Book Of Love” by the Magnetic Fields before it actually became “If We Were Vampires” by Jason Isbell. My mother chose the slow version of “Forever Young” by Bob Dylan & The Band for our dance together. I met Courtney Marie Andrews at XPNFest in Camden and Katie Pruitt at Boot & Saddle. I got to see my best friend on tour with Allen Stone. We saw Gang of Youths twice (snuck my underage brother in both times), Gaslight Anthem in Asbury Park, Ruston Kelly, Japandroids on what was their last headlining show of the tour, Katie Toupin on her first solo tour, Houndmouth twice, Lake Street Dive in New Haven, Paul Simon’s farewell tour, Taylor Swift and her on-the-fly antics after a malfunction at Lincoln Financial Field, Diet Cig, Josh Ritter close down XPNfest and probably some more that I’m forgetting. So, it seems it was a good year for music. Here’s some of my favorites:
