ALBUMS OF 2018

New Years Eve. Lists. Not going to bore you too much with this, but these are the long players that have occupied the office turntables the most this year. They aren’t in any order, but it’s the one from Idles that’s been on there the most. It’s a cracking piece of work. Angry, visceral, compassionate – a clever trick.
But the rest are more than worth your time as well.
