"Best of Albums of 2018"


  

          

Post your list if you've got it.

These are always good for reminding me of anything I've missed.

Personally, putting together a list is going to be tough this your. It always seem like there's a flood of music to sort through as the year ends, but I feel this year that's even more true.

Plus with all the shortened projects, I'm having trouble figuring out what's an EP and what's an album. I feel like there needs to be something in between, for projects that are like between 20 and 30 minutes.

Im going to split it up into three categories. Favorites, although the album might have some weak spots the over all project hit home enough to stay with me for years. Great, these might become favorites with more listens. Worth a listen, i might have these rated as high as favorite and great albums but more than likely are only good albums.

I was pretty generous with my ratings at the beginning of the year and albums i listened to in the past couple of months are rated lower than they should in comparison. I want to listen to at least the below albums again and readjust my ratings. I will post an update including any new releases sometime in december.

Pusha T - Daytona
Lupe Fiasco - Drogas Wave

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Lupe - Drogas Wave - So good. So good. Can't stop listening. Easily my #1 choice and such a shame I didn't see more buzz about it outside of here.


Other things I've dug:

Christina - Liberation - Not sure why but I keep coming back to this.

Pusha T - Daytona - The only Kanye/Wyoming ep I've returned to. (Although I remember enjoying Teyana Taylor's too.)

The Breeders - All Nerve - Another fun, catchy album from homeotown heros who are still a blast to see.

Royce da 5'9" - Book of Ryan - Great mature hip-hop.

Janelle Monae - Dirty Computer - First time she's really clicked for me.

Smashing Pumpkins - Shiny and Oh So Bright...etc - Only had a few listens but digging this.

Guided by Voices - Space Gun - I think the latest group is the best yet... and I've been seeing Uncle Bob & gang since '95. So much fun live.

See ya, JAK

I feel like I am forgetting some stuff, and I definitely haven't spent time with everything I want to spend time with yet. But so far...


Paraffin- Armand Hammer...incredible piece of work. The rhymes, creativity, production...Its all perfect.
Fever- Black Milk...amazing album that stayed in rotation all year
Black Thought SOT vol 2 (f*ck it, its good enough and almost long enough to be an album imo...his best album since Game Theory hands down)
Nostrum Grocers (grew on me)
KA/ Hermit the Recluse- Orpheus vs the Sirens

Binary Star- Lighty, Ears Apart (I just count it as a double album)
Lute - West 1996 Pt 2 (Okay this came out late 2017, but I really discovered it this year. VERY slept on. J Cole has put together quite a squad)
Elzhi/Khrysis- Jericho Jackson (I think folks slept on this)
Lupe- Drogas Waves
Elucid- Shit Dont Rhyme no More
Saba- Cafe for Me
Lojii- Lofeye (this dude is slept on...Due Rent was one of my favs last year too)
Mick Jenkins- Pieces of a Man (doesn't have the highs of his other albums, but very good/consistent listen)
Trapo- Oil Change
Spote Breeze- Not Aloud (this may end up higher on the my list, it is excellent...thanks to Stylez for the heads up)
Phonte- No News is Good News (the good songs are really good, but he has yet to put together a solo that lives up to his potential IMO)
Jay Rock- Redemption
Gibbs- Freddie
that Quelle Chris * Jean Grae joint
Gibbs & Curren$y- Fetti
Cozz- Effected
Marlowe
Majestik Legend- All this Time (Black Opera in general is under-appreciated)
Prhyme 2
Aceyalone & DJ Fat Jack- 43rd and Excellence
Sylvan Lacue- Apologies in Advance (once this dude learns to edit/trim the fat he will put out an excellent album)


EPs-
Black Thought SOT Vol 1
Javon "X" Johnson PRE (ya'll up on this dude from Houston? GOOD SHIT)
Elucid- No Edge Ups in Uganda
Mach- Duck CZN
Earthgang- Royalty
Denmark- Sun Go Nova

I still need to check/spend more time with: Milo's solo, Jamal Bufford (Buff 1), Vince Staples, Noname, Paak, Planet Asia, August Greene or whatever its called, the new Shad, Masta Ace, JID, Open Mike and I'm sure I am forgetting others


I wasn't feeling that Earl single, but I am still hopeful for the album.

But yeah, the album is really good.

I liked El's previous one too, I thought it was unfairly slept on/dissed. It wasn't as consistent as this, but there are some really good songs on there.

Phonte and Royce are my favorites. Black Thought as well.

The only other album I listened to a lot was Nasir, which was cool.

I gotta give Prhyme 2, Lupe, Skyzoo, and Black Milk a lot more listens or in some cases a first listen.

Still need to get to Anderson Paak and The Internet too.

I fell into the habit of mostly only listening to old music that I’ve heard a million times before. Need to get back into new music.

Lately, I can't find the bandwidth to work (web design / development) and listen attentively to new music. I still listen to music but its mostly songs I've listened into the ground.

I was doing okay taking in new music last year after I took a hip-hop break. But I have to admit I've been washed as far as carving out time to listen to new music.

Hard to have time to shut my brain off from everything else and stop thinking and just listen to the music, especially with rappers with bars that you have to actively pay attention to.

I need to fly somewhere. That time on the plane where there is literally nothing else to do would be perfect for absorbing new music, for me.

It's a really good album, I like it as much as Book of Ryan and Drogas Wave, that deals with some real shit he's been through recently really well. I know nothing about the 'Seven' guy that produced it but the music is great.
