Top 10 Albums of 2018: C-Sides
- Written by Rick Comello
This was a fantastic year for progressive rock and all its subgenres. The debut by the Anglagard side project, All Traps on Earth, was the first standout from the list. The sophomore effort from France’s Alco Frisbass was stunning as well. And Bubu’s follow-up to their 1978 masterpiece, ‘Anabelas,’ their first full-length studio album in 40 years, exceeded all expectations. There are plenty more extraordinary releases from 2018, but the ones on the list really shine. Peace.
