Crash Records End Of Year Album Chart

Here is our Top 40 album chart for 2018. It reflects the musical tastes of all the staff that work here from our 18 year old Saturday girl Georgia through to 60 year old shop owner Ian! We are sure it will divide opinion. Some people will be surprised at albums that have been included and appalled that their favourite release of 2017 isn’t in the rundown, but that’s music for you, we all have our own finely tuned musical tastes. Everyone in the shop submitted their own list and shop manager Paul then cobbled together a top 40 chart from the crumpled pieces of paper and here it is…….
