2018 Top Albums

2018 Top Albums

Sarah Vance Harrison

In 2018, Harry and Meghan got married, Blank Panther was released, and Musical.ly was still around. 2018 was also a year of great song and album releases. Here are some of the top and my personal favorite albums from two years ago.



Golden Hour by Kacey Musgraves

This album from Musgraves showed her amazing twist on country music, combining it with disco and electro-pop. It won the Grammy award for Album of the Year and sold over 735,000 units. Some of the best songs from this album include “Butterflies,” “Space Cowboy,” “Velvet Elvis,” “High Horse,” and “Rainbow.”

A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships by the 1975

The 1975’s third studio album focused on the way the internet influences personal relationships. It further explored the band’s synthetic pop brand with songs like “TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME” and “I Like America & America Likes Me.” It focused more on rock pop at times with “It’s Not Living (If It’s Now With You)” and “Love It If We Made It.” The album toes the line between heartbreak and mood-boosters and takes its listeners on an emotional rollercoaster that is well worth the ride.


Beerbongs & Bentleys by Post Malone

Post Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys became certified triple platinum and debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200. The R&B and hip hop album was boosted by hit singles like “rockstar” and “Psycho.” “Over Now,” “Otherside,” “Blame It On Me,” “Sugar Wraith” are some of the more underrated songs on the album.


I met you when I was 18.(the playlist) by Lauv

Lauv’s debut album introduced the world to his indie pop artistry. He excels at romantic ballads and has vocals that shine through in every song. “I Like Me Better” and “Chasing Fire” are the more well-known tracks of the album, with their upbeat and catchy tune. My personal favorites are “Paris in the Rain,” “Reforget,” and “Getting Over You.”

Youngblood by 5 Seconds of Summer

Australian band 5 Seconds of Summer released their third album in the summer of 2018, which showed their development from previous albums due to their greater dedication to improving their lyrics. Top singles from the album include “Want You Back,” “Youngblood,” and “Lie to Me.” Other songs on the album that stand out are “If Walls Could Talk,” “Ghost of You,” and “Monster Among Men.”
