    Is that time of the year again, and many know the drill, but there have been newbies coming lately.

    Write your top (10 minimum, no maximum) list of albums, concerts, videos, for 2018.
    No bashing, no hit and run comments, all lists are valid in the eyes of the poster.

    I post mine usually on Dec 31, but anyone who like put it before is welcome. This thread will be "sticky" until Feb 2019 and then will have its own rotation.
