Top-5 2018 (at the moment)

Recommended Posts

Well, this year is being much softer than last one IMO; not exactly a surprise as a lot of great bands did their releases in 2017 and it's too soon for the most part of them.

My top-5 currently:

1. W.E.T.

2. Shiraz Lane

3. No Sleep For Lucy

4. Ammunition

5. ReVertigo

Big deception: Kamelot

Very possibly Vega, Station, and Ted Poley+Degreed will mess all this. :headbanger:

Don't be shy and let me know yours!

I think I'm going ReVertigo, W.E.T., LeBrock. 

Don't think I've heard anything else this year.

Why would it not be worth? It's 'at the moment.'

because so far there's been hardly anything worth rating. 

WET is miles ahead imo. Even Maverick is a distant 2nd. 

But there are a few real tasty albums coming in the next couple of months....for me anyway

Albums;

1. No Sleep for Lucy     -    Until the End

2. Self Deception     -    Self Deception

3. Grand Design     -    Viva La Paradise

4. W.E.T.     -    Earthrage

5. We Were Sharks     -    Lost Touch

 

EPs;

1. LeBrock     -    Real Thing

2. As We Once Were     -    Day in Day Out - EP 

3. American Secrets     -    Wasn't Our Season

4. Summer Wars     -    Borrowed Time - EP

5. Caught In A Wave     -    High - EP  

 

Looking forward to hearing ETF and Stone Broken (?) too, though. 

For the record, not overly amped over anything in the albums list so far. Self Deception and We Were Sharks will probably be the highest rated of that lot by years end, but if any of them are in my top 10 I'll be pretty bummed. 

If you don't know Self Deception, get this monster into ya;

And yep, LeBrock still devours anything released this year so far. Heads and shoulders above the rest of the pack.

just listened to No Sleep For Lucy. apprently I'm 6 years behind in respect of this band lol, but yeah that's pretty nice. Not as good as but similar to Destine.

contrary to what Geoff said if WET ends up outside of my top 10 it will have been a freaking amazing year. Basically I love the album. Everything I want from my melodic rock and I tend to agree with Dan that it might end up my favourite WET album.

was interested in that Self Deception so had a quick listen on Spotify. it's OK. but not really my thing if I'm honest. Far prefer No Sleep For Lucy

Also I just noticed you'e got Grand Design above WET lol. Man that Grand Design is terrible but to each their own ;)

But we wanna know how you rate what you've heard so far. 

Pretty sure we had this exact conversation last year.

Absolutely worth a few early peeks at what people are liking after the first quarter.Love it and will be firing up a few I'd not come across shortly. 

So far been pretty disappointing. Some big artists not delivering what I'd hoped for. Some gems out there though.  

 

Not a top 5. Just the ones I've liked the most so far....
 

ITEM Album
Sharaz Lane Carnival Days
Dizzy Reed Rock N Roll Aint Easy
Marco Mendoza Viva La Rock
Ministry Amerikkkant
Firetiger Suggenly Heavenly
Little Caeser 8

well I must have listened to over 20 albums this year and the only 3 I could recommend buying are these (in order)

1. WET

2. Maverick

3. No Sleep For Lucy

(Ammunition and Shiraz Lane are OK but I doubt they would be higher than 70%)

and in terms of EPs -

1. Lebrock

There have been some great songs from albums to be released from Vega, Gathering of Kings & Tremonti. I am also super excited by NFO due 28.06. So I hope to have something resembling a decent top 10 by end of June. 

I have a feeling the second half of the year could be pretty good but depends on how many of these promised albums slip into 2019 - stuff like Creye, Work of Art, Defiants, Ted Poley, One Desire, Midnite City etc

I hope that Gathering of Kings maintains the quality of that one track.

I just had a road trip where I got to try out a few new discs.

I'd add Bobaflex to my list now.

Escape the fate is pretty decent , a lot less heavy than previous efforts I'd say but good stuff

Not sure that Stone Broken will do much for you tbh , very Nickelback, theory of a deadmen ish but I just love that sound

I liked 4 or 5 songs off that Self Deception album but a bit patchy for me
