Best Albums of the first half of 2018

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

I put together last year's Best Albums list and while mego is putting together a MAEP specific list and we all wish him well, I though us poor peasants might want a list of our own.

If you want in, do a list of 10, ranked 1-10, with #1 receiving 10 points and 10 receiving 1 OR an unranked list where all get 3 points. Deadline is June 15th (and/or whenever I get around to tabulating). All albums must be released after December 31st 2017 (naturally) and not released after June 1st (albums released on June 1st are the last eligible). Re-issues are not eligible (but maybe we can make a different list?) Compilations are eligible but only if more than half of the record is original material unavailable elsewhere.

I'll try my best to put together a nice comprehensive list and Spotify playlist like I did last time.

This will change a lot. I've been slow to get around to stuff this year. I paid for the full Autechre and listened to some of it when it was being broadcast, but it'll be a while before I can listen to the whole thing and decide how I feel about it.

She’s awesome. I’ve liked her last couple of releases a lot (which didn’t have vocals), and this is the best thing of hers I’ve heard. I doubt I’ll hear anything else this year that I like more.
