2018 - The Good, the Bad and the Ugly


For most of 2018 so far I haven't had neither much time nor interest in catching up with the latest album releases. There are some exceptions though so I thought I might as well list them. I haven't gone as much out of my comfort zone compared to my previous lists which is very much reflected in the overall ratings.

Yeah, I thought I had to create at least something.

Thanks for the heads up about Lingua Ignota, I had totally missed that. On to last years list it goes then.

You know me well I see. A fine addition to my list.

Skimmed it through and it sounds decent enough. A lot of stuff going on, kinda ambitious for what looks to be a solo project.
