Musical year in review: The 25 best albums of 2018
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.
24. Little Dark Age - MGMT
But ever since their smash hit debut 'Oracular Spectacular' and signing on to Columbia records, MGMT’s music has been getting less and less accessible, slowly polarizing fans and fading away from the indie mainstream. But 2018's 'Little Dark Age' finally saw MGMT wake up and find that tricky balance between experimentation and radio-friendly pop. Making a left turn from 2013's self-titled album, MGMT's latest offering is at once haunting yet cheerful, funny yet dark, and loaded with hard hitting 80s styled synthesizers.
