    Worthy of note that these are the only two albums I purchased that were released this year. Happy New Year to ALL! \MM/

    1. What Happens Next is a great album, almost made my top 5! Half of Chickenfoot, (with Chad Smith) and then add Glenn Hughes in the mix, it’s a Super Funky Badass! 😉

  3. Nicely varied list Doug R. Oh well, may as post my top5 which consequently were the only 5 “new” albums I purchased this past year except for “Anthem of the Peaceful Army” by Greta Van Fleet which was a disappointment so therefore is not on the list.
    5- 28 Days in the Valley- Dorothy
    4- Rainier Fog- Alice in Chains
    3- Chains Are Broken- The Devil Makes Three
    2- Controlled Chaos- Nita Strauss
    1- Prequelle- Ghost

    1. Thanks, Rob, I see you have 2 of my picks in your top 5 as well! 😉
      Ace’s new album Spaceman might’ve made my list had he not fired his whole damn band! No but honestly, it’s a good album, but just not good enough for my top 5.

  4. 5. Tremonti – A Dying Machine
    4. Metal Church – Damned if you do
    3. Dee Snyder – For the love of Metal
    2. Stone Temple Pilots – STP
    1. Halestorm – Vicious

  5. My Top 5 albums for 2018 are:

    5. Steve Perry – Traces
    4. DD Veni – Barricade
    3. Saxon – Thunderbolt
    2. Judas Priest – Firepower
    1. Ghost – Prequelle

    And the albums I’m most looking forward to in 2019 are Overkill’s and Dream Theater’s albums.
