COXY’s Top Ten of 2018 (Top Albums 2018)

So, another year in the can.  Trash can or celluloid can, you decide.  My life has ridden an unremarkable 12 months, apart from dislocating my shoulder twice in the same 24 hours and the two month rehab for this goddamn painful accident.  I hit 50 years of age and grew lots more grey hair.  However, the music has been amazing and I therefore commend the following slabs of wax to you as my Top Ten…

TOM CORNELL’s Top Ten of 2018 (Top Albums 2018)

Every year it gets to December and I am asked to pick my top 10 albums of the year. Every year it seems to get harder! Such is the wealth of good music out there.

It also exposed me to several artists that knew of, but had never really taken the time to listen to their catalogue.  This is a list of the ten albums that impressed me the most this year, either…

BRIAN RONALD’s Top Ten of 2018 (Top Albums 2018)

BRIAN RONALD’s Top Ten Albums of 2018 #10. No Hot Ashes – No Hot Ashes Alright I’ll admit it, despite 35 years’ experience I had never heard of NHA before. What a brilliant mix of Hard Rock, Soft and Melodic rock with both a classic and modern sound. Maybe one of my most played CD’s of the year. It seems I like it more with each spin. I read that this was a reunion tour,…
