Some surprises, some shocks, some “that’s shit mate, why’s that there?” are all present, probably. Or not. Enjoy, my top 10 albums of 2018.
Idles – Joy As An Act Of Resistance
I’m not sure what the best part of Colossus is – I think it’s every single second that it rants, shouts and spits at you, even the moment where all you hear is ragged breathing.
Idles – Brutalism
Subtlety doesn’t really exist to a band like Idles. Brutalism, their debut album, opens the door before you’ve had time to answer, staggers into your house, a blood-smeared hand caressing your walls, a half-drunk crate of beer under one arm and a look that’s a cross between madness and euphoria.
