Because in a year filled with great music, what have band members rated in 2018?
2018 has been a big year for music. A huge year for music.
We know what our favourites have been- but what have band members spend 2018 spinning? We decided to ask.
These are the albums that Don Broco frontman Rob Damiani has rated higher than the rest. Over to Rob:
Twenty One Pilots - 'Trench' "For me this album has everything. I love what Twenty One Pilots are doing, and they give me faith that exciting, creative rock music is more than just alive and well - it’s the best music going right now."
Mike Shinoda - 'Post Traumatic' "The first time I listened to this record it brought me to tears. I can’t remember the last time that happened listening to music. The songs really brought back the thoughts and feelings of my own loss of my best friend a few years ago, though still have an amazingly positive outlook and message. It’s all about the ‘post’ in ‘post-traumatic’."
The 1975 - 'A Brief Enquiry Into Online Relationships' "This is actually the first 1975 record I’ve listened through in its entirety and it’s really fucking good. The variation in production styles between the tracks keeps it super interesting and the songs are great."
Idles - 'Joy As An Act Of Resistance' "Contains my fave lyric of the year on the track 'Great' - ‘Islam didn’t eat your hamster’. It’s true, Islam didn’t eat your hamster.
MUSE - 'Simulation Theory' "I love the concept behind this album. There’s two sides to the record, each side with the same songs but totally different arrangements. I love hearing alternate versions of songs- you can hear the same lyric or piece of music but feel it in a completely new way."
