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. ;)

    • Seem like good releases but TBH none of those have seemed to do much for me.  I kinda view them all as kind of lighter AOR that just doesn't seem to really grab me.  I need a little edge in my AOR....Kinda like Defiants, H.e.a.t, etc.  Work of Art I've tried multiple times and just don't care for at all. Haven't looked overly close at the other two although I know I sampled the singles when they came out and didn't care for them enough to go much farther.  Maybe I'll revisit.    
    • No Punk, no Grunge but lots of Scandinavian Cheese. ; )
    • A nice tribute to The Midnight and FN-84  
    • work of art, first signal, find me, ?? 
    • Been giving this a little thought....Think my top 5 is pretty strong but the next 5 are all just pretty average releases that probably wouldn't even make my top 10 in some other years. Not sure on the order of my top 3 yet but will be Crazy Lixx, Defiants and Pretty Maids in some order.  Then likely Eclipse and Degreed rounding out the top 5. Next 5 in some order are probably Station, Nitrate, Roxy Blue, Tesla and Saints of Sin.  I still might try to go back and check out some stuff I've missed from this year though so this "next 5" could easily change.

    • Hard Rock band from México! Band members.- Lead vocals: Andres Espada Lead Guitar: Jose Mesta Rhythm Gtr: Firio Verastegui Bass: Daniel Mesta Drums: Sergio Mtz facebook      
    • From Frontiers: Waiting For Monday is a new melodic rock band formed by vocalist Rudy Cardenas and guitarist/singer August Zadra. The band hails from Los Angeles and was brought to the attention of Frontiers by Jeff Scott Soto, with the label moving quickly to sign them based on their outstanding talents. Musically, you can expect classic chart topping melodies ala Journey, Styx, and Foreigner, but with a decidedly modern approach. And if you are looking for sunny, meaningless lyrics, then you probably best look elsewhere as the band has stories to tell, and not all of them happy. Originally from Venezuela, Rudy Cardenas is an incredibile vocal talent. His pipes carriedd him to the finals on Season 6 of American Idol and he has been heard on TV and movies ranging from Family Guy to Real Steel. For five years, Rudy was the power alto for the multi-award winning vocal group, M-pact, who was named Vocal Group of the Year at the 2005 L.A. Music Awards. More recently, Rudy was the featured vocalist for the Gold-selling Hungarian rock album by Mr. Zsolt. August Zadra is best known for handling lead guitar and vocal duties in iconic singer Dennis DeYoung's solo band since 2010. Since the age of 15, guitar playing has been a passion that carried August from Fairbanks, Alaska to Hollywood, California, where he attended and graduated from the Guitar Institute of Technology. He has been a regular feature in the Los Angeles music scene for the past 20 years, playing with a variety of bands, and is often sought out as a guitarist/vocalist collaborator for writing and recording projects. Completing the lineup are Joe Travers (drums), Walter Ino (guitar and keyboards), and Eric Baines (bass). Their exciting debut record is now ready to be shared with the world.  Tracklist: 1. Until The Dawn 2. End Of A Dream 3. Shattered Lives 4. Found You Now 5. Right In Front Of You 6. Must Have Been 7. Pick Your Lies 8. Inside Your Head 9. Make It Better 10. Love You Forever 11.
