December 28, 2018

We've already went into detail on our 'Top 20 Songs of 2018' which you can listen to here, but now it's time to dive into our 'Top Albums of 2018.' Before we get into it, let me reiterate something - 2018 was an interesting year for alternative and rock music. Imagine Dragons and Panic! at the Disco battled it out for the top spot on the Billboard chart, twenty one pilots dropped their highly-anticipated album "Trench," and newcomer lovelytheband came on very strong with the release of their debut album "finding it hard to smile." With that being said, there were plenty of standouts. Grab your headphones, let's jam.
