Continuing the yearly tradition of discovering new music via this thread, here is the 2018 edition! Every year this thread is an excellent resource to find the best new music being released, let's further that. A bunch of albums have already been released, and a few more coming Friday... Most of you know how this thread works, but here are some quick guidelines that'll help this thread to go smoothly: 1. Yes, at the end of the year, it's nice to post your year-end list, but moreso, this thread is a valuable resource as the year progresses. As such, please no threadcrapping about how this thread is too early when it's obviously not. This site is an invaluable resource to finding what albums are out and will be out every week: New Album Releases, New Music 2. Youtube links, album covers, and/or text describing the album you are mentioning is much appreciated! That way sampling the albums in question is made easier. What's not really that helpful is popping into this thread and posting an obscure album title and artist without any other information. 3. Please keep the thread positive. I mean, if you were really disappointed by an album, sure, go ahead and mention that you weren't a fan, and give reasons why. "______ album sucks" comments are not worthy of being posted here. Also, please steer away from things like "most overrated albums of 2018" lists and such here. 4. While posting your most anticipated albums is fine, just don't do it too often. Let's dig in! What have you liked so far?
