Last but not least, the album that holds the prestigious title of 2018’s Album Of The Year belongs to Foreplay by. Mild Orange, an up and coming Psychedelic Rock band out of New Zealand. Foreplay gets the strap based on how the album flows from start to finish, every song serves a purpose and is a perfect lead in from one track to the next. Foreplay is album you can play at any time or any season, it is a timeless record and will be remembered as such!


Many great albums were mentioned in this article and the best one out of those albums was crowned the superior album of 2018. Many, I am sure were probably expecting a more popular record to hold the title but it’s the lesser known albums out there that really pack true art and emotion. 2019 will bring even more great records, if 2018 is any indicator that music has reached a new level, then we have nothing to worry about in 2019!!!
