I tried to look and see what releases from this year I'd bought,but the few things I did buy were mostly used or reissues.

I listened to this on Spotify enough that I would buy it if I saw it.

A "dull, drab and unengaging" album made it into the end of year best of!

I'm not doing mine for another 6 months or so, I'm not ready, I haven't processed 2018 yet.
