Our Top Ten albums for 2018

Well, I’ve listened to a veritable ton of music this year: some great, some less so – Eric Clapton’s Christmas album need not take a bow! All those hours have been distilled into my Top Ten for 2018. There are probably another 50 I could have chosen, but these are the ones that floated my boat in 2018. If you’re looking for that special gift for that special someone this year, these are definitely worth considering.

Next week we’ll bring you our customers’ top 10 by way of our best-selling albums of the year.

Latest new releases

Our smashers for 7 December open with the 40th(!) studio album of Van Morrison’s storied career, the modestly titled The Prophet Speaks, of which Van himself said: “It was important for me to get back to recording new music as well as doing some of the blues material that has inspired me from the beginning.John Mellencamp has released hundreds of original songs over his illustrious career, but he has also recorded numerous celebrated cover versions, breathing new life and spirit into various staples of the classic American musical canon; a handpicked selection of these forms Other People’s Stuff. Danish hard rock titans Volbeat release Let’s Boogie! – a captivating live document of a rip-roaring hometown show. The Butterfly Package contains the complete performance from the last night of Coldplay’s most recent tour, plus a filmed concert from a week earlier and a documentary convering the band’s colourful 20-year history. Within Temptation return with a futuristic take on metal with a clear message. Resist is driven by grand melodies and dark hooks, mind-blowing arrangements and dark melodies. And the most important message of it all? Wake up and protect your freedom. And resist!

Our release of the week is Springsteen On Broadway, a recording of a unique solo acoustic evening with The Boss, his guitar, a piano, and his very personal stories from his best-selling autobiography Born To Run, plus a special appearance by Patti Scialfa. This historic series of sold-out performances of Springsteen’s one-man show was extended three times after its initial eight-week run, and ran for a total of 236 performances.

We have some lovely new releases to tell you about, kicking off with What Is Love, the new album from Clean Bandit, about which the band say: “The album looks at many different kinds and stages of love. We’ve been making it over three years, during which time we’ve all experienced love in our lives in different ways.” So there you go! Jeff Tweedy’s new solo album of all-new material, Warm, was of course produced and recorded entirely by Jeff at the now legendary Chicago studio The Loft, and follows the acoustic retrospective Together At Last (2017) and Wilco’s 2016 album, Schmilco. As is usual with The 1975, advance info about their new release is sparse, with little known beyond the track listing and the title A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships. Still, the Manchester indie poppers reliably deliver infectious, hooky guitar-driven music. A Bird In The Hand is Beans On Toast’s tenth, and probably best, album. Beans has become something of a cult national treasure – a consistent and reliable modern-day troubadour, not afraid to speak his mind. And don’t forget that this week also brings us the second half of Kate Bush’s epic Remastered album reissue box sets. This time she gives us her work from Aerial onwards, including the 2016 live album Before The Dawn.

Release of the week is the latest live issue from the David Bowie archives. Glastonbury 2000 contains his full performance at the legendary festival that year, featuring a set list to die for with songs for serious Bowie-heads and for music-lovers alike. This long-overdue release of a very special Bowie night is not to be missed.
