January 6, 2019 – The Best of 2018

This show is the annual celebration of the best albums heard on Audiosyncracy during the previous year. 2018 saw 151 albums debut on the program and 16 are featured here. The list is completely subjective and presented in no particular order. The albums are not necessarily copyright 2018; they merely have to have received their Audiosyncracy debut during the calendar year.

I intend to go back and present “best of” lists for as many years as I can find records for in upcoming weeks.
