From smashing debuts to long-awaited comebacks, from wild experiments to political statements, here's our list of the 25 best albums from a wild and unpredictable year in music.
The 25 best albums of 2018 25. Virtue - The Voidz
The Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas reassembled his side project The Voidz this year and gave us the strange and wonderful record ‘Virtue’. Although the opening track 'Leave it in my Dreams' is instantly relatable with the sound and feel of The Strokes, the rest of the album is a far cry from it. Embracing the weirdness, the album has a diverse range. From the psychedelic comic horror of 'Pyramid of Bones' to the bizarre breakdowns of 'ALieNNation' and 'All Wordz Are Made Up', the new album flits through topics like philosophy, politics and metaphysics in the typical style of post-Strokes Casablancas.
