kalk's 2018

This list features the albums from 2018 I listened to in 2018. Notice that I wasn't into being up to date with all these releases last year, I was more into checking the back catalogues of the bands I was already into, so this list is rather short.
10Architects
Holy Hell


I listened to this once and never came back. It was enough with AOGHAU, please move on from this sound.
2.5 to 3/5
9Rabbit Junk
Rabbit Junk Will Die


A little too generic imo. Just not that engaging, but fun from time to time.
3/5
8Muse
Simulation Theory


Muse released their most honest and least forced album since ... yea, quite some years. I'm very happy with this. Not perfect at all, but Break It To Me fucks.
3.5/5
7TesseracT
Sonder


This would have been a great EP if the opener and the double track were cut from this. Feels a little gneric at times, but the good songs are simply great.
3.5/5
6Between the Buried and Me
Automata I


Not as engaging as the second half.
3.5/5
5Plini
Sunhead


Seems like Plini is making some slight progress with this.
4/5
4Between the Buried and Me
Automata II


Definetly the better half of something that should not have been devided in two halves. A little too sterile for a higher rating, but The Proverbial Bellow fucking slays.
4/5
3Heisskalt
Idylle


And interesting reinvention of Heisskalt's sound. Not as focused as their previous two albums, but not worse by any means. My ranking would be: Vom Wissen und Wollen > Idylle > Vom Stehen und Fallen.
4/5
2Alligatoah
Schlaftabletten, Rotwein V


I like to think about Alligatoah more as a pop musician than a rapper, because he does everything from playing guitar over singing to rapping. This is incredibly consistent and may not be a surprising release, but that really doesn't matter if it's of this quality.
4 to 4.5/5
1Haken
Vector


My first Haken album. I wasn't sure at first, because of the rather sterile vocal production, but every song on this slays. The short runtime helps a lot, nothing here is overstaying its welcome. The last song isn't the best closer, but that's really all I can complain about.
4.5/5
