The Sloth's 11 Bestest albums 2018!!!

I listened to over 500 albums this year, some more than others. This list reflects the 11 albums I liked the most, not necessarily the greatest albums of the year, but the ones that grabbed and squeezed my balls the hardest in 2018.
1Spanish Love Songs
Schmaltz


I saw these guys live in a dive bar in San Diego in 2017, there were 3 paying guests there, I had come from Australia, my partner from Canada, and some other random drunk dude. The band still put on an awesome set, in what was their last gig of the tour, and I knew they were destined for greatness. I was anticipating this album ever since Giant Sings the Blues, and it beat all of my expectations. My fav album of 2018.
2Foxing
Nearer My God


The first time I heard this album, I was unsure if it was my cup of tea. I had liked half the songs off Dealer, but didn't care much for the others. After a couple more listens to this album, I was hooked.
3The Last Gang
Keep Them Counting


This came out early in 2018, but i found myself coming back to it throughout the year. This is classic FatWreck Punk, and Brenna's vocal range is outstanding. "believe in the poet"
4Press Club
Late Teens


This band is going to go places in the near future. The lead singer is channeling the late great Chrissy Amphlett of the Divinyls, the music is tight, and I was hooked.
5Hop Along
Bark Your Head Off, Dog


All songs on this album are great.
6The Dirty Nil
Master Volume


Probably the most underrated band on this list. Their last two albums have been fucking sweeet. Can't wait to see these Canadians live this year.
7Mad Caddies
Punk Rocksteady


Ska/reggae takes of 90s punk. Some killer covers here, everyone has been transformed into a different style, some better than the originals. This was my summer Jam, on the beach, by the pool, with a cooler full of beers, reminiscing about the past.
8McCafferty
Yarn


A bunch of great singles, most songs are stand outs. Catchy sing-a-longs. Hope the singer can deal with his mental health problems, and mature to the artist he could become.
9The Wonder Years
Sister Cities


Another solid album by the Wonder Years. Nice subtle change of direction from their previous releases. It took a couple of listens to really appreciate the diversity.
10Ducking Punches
Alamort


They were on the same 2017 tour as Spanish Love songs. I had loved some of their previous songs, but never their full album. This time the whole album was great.
11Mean Jeans
Jingles Collection


23 punk jingles, most under a minute in length. I don't agree with the products they were "advertising", but the songs themselves are masterpieces.
