Jonny's Super Late top 15 list of 2018

While in 2017 i was a little out of the loop about what albums were coming out, 2018 had me listening to way more new albums from all across the board. This list will be all over the map, in terms of Genre and location, including a band from Faroe Islands, to Scotland, and back to USA and Canada. Because of all of the albums i was able to listen to, i've decided to do a top 15 instead of a top 10.

As with last year, I will try to include a couple of my favorite tracks of each album, and i will also post the lead single of each album if there is one

I thought last year's list was posted late and it was only a few days after January 1st. This list is a few months after...oops!
