No records that really blew me away this year, apart from number one. Some solid releases though, and as usual it’s an eclectic mix of genres

(TL;DR: in bold the EM releases)

1 Crow Black Sky - Sidereal Light: Volume One
2 [‘ramp] - No sleep ‘til Wilmersdorf
3 Free System Projekt & Terje Winther - Spoon Forest
4 Gazpacho - Soyuz
5 Amorphis - Queen of time
6 Parallel Worlds & Dave Bessel - Dystopia
7 Ihsahn - Ámr
8 Pollard/Daniel/Booth - Eight
9 Jean Michel Jarre - Equinoxe Infinity
10 Benjamin Herman - Project S

Agreed, But speaking for myself, I have no full picture yet of everything that was released in 2018 an that I listened to.

But to make at least a (false) start...

Best re-release of 2018:
Age - Landscapes

Interesting. Didn’t even know he had a new album out. So far I’ve only been able to find it on streaming services and as a lossy download or on cd-r. Any idea if it’s available as a lossless (flac) download too?

As every year, I only heard a fracture of all albums released, so I hardly can claim to know what the best albums of 2018 would be. Anyway, of course there were some albums which impressed me a lot, like these (in no particular order...)

Robert Rich, The Biode

Steve Roach, Molecules Of Motion

['ramp], No Sleep 'til Wilmersdorf: The Berlin Years

Robert Rich & Markus Reuter, Flood Expeditions

Bernhard Woestheinrich, Elsewhere

Annemarie Borg, In Nomine Tellus

Dead can Dance, Dionysus

Forrest Fang, Scenes from a Ghost Train

Hoshiko Yamane, Threads

VelgeNaturlig, Kundalini


I also like...

Klaus Schulze, Silhouettes

Jean-Michel Jarre, Equinoxe Infinity

Tangerine Dream, The Sessions II

Johan Tronestam, Midgard

Juta Takahashi, Lights and Shadows

Matthias Grassow, Jericho

Node, Node Live

Perceptual Defence & Syndromeda, Live at Cosmic Nights 2017

Son Of Ohm, Blackbirds

Spyra, Dunst

Volker Lankow, 14 Years Through A Turmoiled World


Hey, that's quite a lot of good music for one year (and by far not all there is)! Very Happy
