SPIN Best Albums 2018

Year-end list season continues and one of the latest lists out is by SPIN, who this year picked 51 best albums of 2018 (instead of the usual 50). Coming at #1 is The 1975, who also topped Pitchfork’s song list. Mitski, who has been a popular #1 this year, came in at #2, and Kacey Musgraves came in at #3. Elsewhere on the list, there’s other usual suspects like Low, Pusha T, Earl Sweatshirt, Robyn, U.S. Girls, Ariana Grande, Noname, Cardi B, and Janelle Monae, as well as some stuff that you don’t see on every list like Kelly Moran, Lonnie Holley and Trouble.
