2018 — another exciting year of releases for the Rate Your Music community.
The album that spent the greatest number of weeks in the top albums of 2018 at #1, Twin Fantasy, was a re-recording of Car Seat Headrest's 2011 release of the same title. Overtaken briefly by Mount Eerie's powerfully sad Now Only in April and Beach House's hypnotic 7 in May, the Kanye West and Kid Cudi collab Kids See Ghosts finally broke the spell in early- to mid-October. Finally, dark, noisy You Won't Get What You Want immediately skyrocketed up the charts upon release, retaining the crown of #1 at year's end.
With the final charts of 2018 published, here now is the chance to re-experience some of your favorites and discover other top releases you may have missed, with words on the top 50 albums of 2018 written by members of the RYM community.
