Man, 2017 was rough, huh? Not a single good album. Literally every album sounded like a wet fart. We kept this mom-and-pop music blog alive by saying nice things1, but really, it was all garbage water.
But the changing of the calendar is a time for new beginnings. Right? So put down your Wendy’s Junior Bacon Cheeseburgers, little ones, because things are gonna get juicy. Here are our most anticipated albums of 2018…
