    I've been waiting on this for a long time. My friend and I obsessed over Swim when it was released back in 2014. We completely forgot the group even existed until it popped up in New Releases on Spotify.

    Still Have To Listen To/ Anticipated
    BMTH – TBC
    Avril Lavigne – TBA
    Echosmith – Inside A Dream
    The Pretty Reckless – TBC
    Halestorm – TBC
    Purity Ring – TBC
    CHVRCHES – Love Is Dead
    Within Temptation – TBC
    Muse – TBA
    Franz Ferdinand – Always Ascending
    Florence and The Machine - High As Hope
    The 1975 – Music For Cars
    Against The Curent - TBC
    Radiohead - TBC
    Delain - TBC


    I hope Avril Lavigne (if she puts out something that she's been holding back for ages), CHVRCHES and Mike Shinoda can make albums that will be among the best of the year.
    I have low expectations for Florence+ The Machine after hearing the first single, probably another good, but not great album.

    It seems like 2018 is going to be worse than 2017 (last year was not perfect, but good anyway). In 2017 I had 15
    great albums, 12 good ones, 0 average and 10 bad albums. This year almost at halfway point I have only 5 great ones and I'm expecting only 4 more of those, 5 good, 4 average, only 2 bad ones (I feel like I've been avoiding those) and 7 others by bands I don't know and have no expectations, just a feeling that none of them will be amazing. If I want average or bad albums, I think I just have to listen to the most mainstream stuff.

    Hey everyone, just a reminder that if you're doing your lists with custom font colors, do NOT use an actual RGB/hex code for your "normal" text. There are multiple forum skins in use on the LPA, so when you mark your text to be black or white, it makes your post a little more difficult to read (and, let's face it, less aesthetically pleasing) to read on the dark or light themes respectfully. If you take out your black/white tags, it allows the forum's native theme to take hold for easier visibility.

    This message brought to you by a guy using a dark forum theme that makes the above post's black text unnecessarily difficult to read.

    It's May and I've only listened to like, 3 or 4 albums from 2018. I'm currently bumping the new Cardi B, Drake, Migos and Post Malone, and one of those isn't even an actual album (Drake). King's Dead by Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, Future & James Blake is my song of the year so far. Can't get that shit out of my head

    I'm gonna go ahead and add...

    Tell Me How You Really Feel by Courtney Barnett
    Kids See Ghosts by Kanye West & Kid Cudi
    Post Traumatic EP by Mike Shinoda
    Beyondless by Iceage
    Apart EP by Pete Yorn & Scarlett Johansson
    Uniform Distortion by Jim James

    There's also the new Pusha T and Nas albums produced by Kanye, Earl Sweatshirt, Freddie Gibbs & Madlib, Drake, Frank Ocean, Blood Orange...
