Revisiting releases from earlier this year – 6 months down in my project!
I aimed for a range of different subgenres and types within rap and R&B as well as pop and indie rock in my top 25 albums of 2018. Including Swimming, Voicenotes, Daytona, Isolation, and more.
These album covers from 2018 are not the most beautiful. Rather, they are the most memorable, daring, and unique.
