This week I decided to travel the cosmos (if you look closely enough at that picture of the black hole released this week, you can just about see me in my spaceship), and having scoured every galaxy I can confirm that Music Related Junk is still the greatest music blog in the universe. Don’t believe me? Then you're clearly an idiot.

Albums I Never Got Round To Reviewing In 2018: Travis Scott, KIDS SEE GHOSTS, Greta Van Fleet and more...
I wasn't blogging as incessantly in 2018, but I still found time to listen to a lot of albums, some of which I wish I'd reviewed. I thought I'd take this opportunity to gloss over some of those albums.
Astroworld – Travis Scott
Travis Scott’s auto-tuned drivel doesn’t really do much for me, although I must say this is the most sophisticated auto-tuned drivel I’ve heard. The glitzy production and the star-studded array of guests shows that Travis is definitely a good orchestrater – few hip hop artists can rope together Stevie Wonder, James Blake and Kid Cudi all onto a single album, let alone a single track. The whole album feels like one big party – I just don’t care for the man at the centre of it.

Having already delved into my favourite and least favourite singles, it's now time for my belated top 20 favourite albums of 2018. Feel free to let me know your favourite albums of the year - there was so much music being released in 2018 that I could barely keep up with it all, so I've probably missed out on a few hidden gems.
As always, don't forget to check out my previous year end lists from 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2012!
20 - 11
20. Errorzone – Vein
Boston metal/hardcore band Vein let loose a non-stop assault of explosive riffage and wild percussion. If you like your music loud, heavy and unrelenting, this is certain to hit your sweet spot.
