I've been struggling for the last 2 weeks to get to my top 5 albums of 2018. I started with 12 potential contenders and have pared it down incrementally... to 6. And that's where I've been stuck for the last 3 days. I simply cannot figure out which one of the 6 to remove.

THE PAIN!

The Lazys has a good vibe, but few standout songs for me. 'Young Modern Lightning' is a pretty excellent ballad, though. 

I had no idea Diemonds released another album this year... 

Half Mast Blues a great song. Never been there myself mind you.

 

Lots of good humour on the Lazys album.

Dan, if it's not in your top 5 then you should definitely hear Beyond The Black before compiling.

Right up yr street and better than Within Temptation imo.

never got a chance to comment on your list.

Been listening to Slaves. 

Really cool album - very similar in style to Don Vedda (without the solos)

Probably would have been in my top 20

Yeah, as I said in my comments, it's definitely worthy of several higher spots in my list. If you like it, do yourself a massive favour and immediately access Awaken I Am - 'Blind Love' from 2017. I'm seeing these guys and Secrets on Sunday so I've been spinning it like mad and it probably deserved to be in my top 10 in 2017 - really love the album. Sadly I think I only heard it in early 2018 after seeing a list from Gotthardline in the aftermath, so I think it missed my end of year list in 2017 all together. 

It's probably a bit better than Slaves, imo. 

Funnily enough, I have every intention watching Awaken I Am open for Slaves at the end of March this year too. Will be an interesting show as they're such similar bands. Thankfully, both excellent.

One month down of 2019 and this is surely the slowest start ever? Probably only listened to 3 or 4 new albums and of those only the Wake the Nations caught my attention. 

Yep, need a couple more 2018 lists to see what I've missed.

It will be challenging to find a better (hopefully Work Of Art) from  the latest Syu (my favorite guitarist at the moment) solo lp. I wished he released 2 cds, one with my godess Fuki and one with Haruma. :wub::wub::wub:

Yes. Um, that'll be real hard to beat. Not sure it's going to be possible in 2019.

Oh look, my pug just walked through the doggy door and I had a tape recorder next to it and recorded the flapping of the doggy door. And already we have something better. ;)

    • Is that a man bun or did Danny cut his hair?
    • Appears to be running fine now. I had to submit another support ticket for them to re-apply the fix that they had done before I upgraded... sheesh.
    • From Frontiers: BREAKING NEWS: Crazy Lixx Announce New Album, "Forever Wild", To Be Released May 17, 2019 Swedish hard rockers Crazy Lixx are back with another gem of an album that harkens back to the best of ‘80s hard rock, while also keeping a foot firmly planted in the 21st century. “Forever Wild” further cements the band's status as one of the leaders of the Scandinavian led hard rock revival, cleverly melding a sleaze/hair metal approach (reminiscent of Motley Crue, Warrant, and Winger) with voracious hooks and melodies. With huge choruses, instantly memorable riffs, wailing, emotive guitar solos, and massive production by Danny Rexon and Chris Laney, "Forever Wild" is sure to resonate with old fans and new listeners alike. Singer Danny Rexon says, "Ruff Justice was the first album where I took on the full role of producer, including recording, engineering, editing and some of the mixing. Naturally, there were things that I learnt along the way and, in retrospect, things that could have been done better. On the new album, I was once again the producer, but this time I brought in a whole lot more experience with me and had a clearer picture of what needed to be done to get a GREAT sounding album. So, you could definitely say that the new album is a natural progression from 'Ruff Justice'. It’s actually the first time in the history of the band where the same band members have recorded under roughly the same conditions, in the same studios, with more or less the same equipment and with the same producer. For the first time, you can hear continuity from one album to the next, so I’d say if you’re a fan of 'Ruff Justice', I bet you’ll enjoy this new album the same, if not even more!" The band explores a wider range of styles than ever before on “Forever Wild”. From the hard rocking and anthemic opening track “Wicked” to the AOR inspired upcoming single “Silent Thunder,” to songs like "Eagle", that sounds like it came off a Bon Jovi album circa 1986, Crazy Lixx manage to blend a love and reverence for ‘80s hard rock with their own unique stamp on each track. Rexon continues, "I think the way the album turned out has a lot to do with the current line-up that we established in 2016. I’ve always been a fan of melodic hard rock and hair metal, but with previous members, we’ve been pulling a bit more in different directions at times, so the result hasn’t always gone towards the goal I’d like them too, certainly not as much as it has on this album. I can honestly say that the way Crazy Lixx sounds today is a lot closer to how I envisioned the band to sound in the early 2010’s (around the time of 'New Religion') than how we actually sounded 5-6 years ago."  With “Forever Wild", Crazy Lixx have set the bar very high against their own revered and celebrated catalog. Their best album yet? We’d say so! Don’t miss Crazy Lixx while they’re on the road in support of the album either, as their live shows are a sight to behold! Danny concludes, “On release day (May 17th), we have an album release show in our hometown of Malmö, along with fellow Frontiers band Creye. I’d recommend this event for all the fans that want to see some new songs live for the first time and get a chance to hang out with the band, get the new album signed, and all that fun stuff. After that, we’re lining up a bunch of summer festivals to kick off touring. I think there is a definite summer vibe to this album and the new songs will really fit well on an outdoor summer festival. Really looking forward to this summer’s shows.”    Tracklist: 1. Wicked 2. Break Out 3. Silent Thunder 4. (She's Wearing) Yesterday's Face 5. Eagle 6. Terminal Velocity 7. It's You 8. Love Don't Live Here Anymore 9. Weekend Lover 10. Never Die (Forever Wild) Line-up: Danny Rexon – vocals  Joél Cirera - drums  Jens Anderson – bass guitar  Chrisse Olsson - guitar  Jens Lundgren - guitar    
    • This is actually an EP (first one of three), not a full-length album. Released March 15th. Samples: amazon.com Tracks: 1. Carousel 2. Taking Me Home 3. Let the Sunshine In 4. Dancing in the Moonlight 5. Love of Mine
    • It's definitely destined to be a top 3-5 finisher, at least.
    • Sounding great,this could well be my chart topper album for 2019 but so much competition still to be unleashed this year...but a great track as usual from these guys.
    • It's all part of Frontiers' new ham-fisted approach to PR
