Welcome back to this special retrospective music-posting feature. The gimmick is simple — each week, you post your favorite 25 (or whatever) albums of a given year. We are now moving backwards until we run out of either albums or years.
1978’s one of those in-betweenish years, i guess. i actually really love a lot of stuff on this list, so that seems unfair. Maybe it’s more of a continuation year. What are your favorites from 1978?
