There's been some strong releases (like Haken's "Vector"), but nothing astounding.  Granted, I'm not familiar with the bands and albums posted in the past page or two.  Maybe if I had more time/put more effort into finding new music...

Planning on going over each album on my year end list in the next week (and maybe hearing a few more) and shifting some positions around before the year’s out. I have a vague feeling I might not truly want to have the new Panic! record in my top ten.

Not quite as old as Hemispheres but the best music release for me this whole year was the Fleet Foxes box set of old material from 2006-09.

2018 has had some lovely and even great albums...But not sure I have heard anything that has made it as great a year as I'd have liked. The previous three years had phenomenal efforts for me from Nightwish, Thrice, Fleet Foxes, Taylor Swift, Paradise Lost etc...But this year? A great album from several artists each but nothing that has blown my mind. Behemoth are the closest.

I will say though that I am quietly convinced I have sorely underrated Tremonti, Myles Kennedy and Thrice this year. But often new albums take time t9 sink in for me.

I did absolutely adore the debut album from Auri (a Nightwish side project), and another Nightwish side project from Northward is also great (if totally unoriginal).

Afraid Judas Priest still do not do much for me...

I agree -- there aren't really any albums this year that I would consider top 10-20 of the decade. Closest might be Kali Uchis or Janelle Monae.

A late entrance onto my list:

Andrew Stockdale - Slipstream.  Of all the rock singers active and in their prime right now, he is the only one I place ahead of Myles.
