My Favourite Albums of 2018 ( And Why The Blog Is On A Temporary Break)

This is a post to let regular readers know that Breaking More Waves is on a short unplanned break. 

On November 27th I suffered a heart attack and have subsequently been in hospital, where I still am now. It was, to say the least, a complete shock to both myself and my family / friends. Since being in hospital it has been discovered that I was born with a heart defect, but nobody knew until the heart attack.

I will in due course have open heart surgery to fix me up and if everything is successful I hope to make a full recovery and return to normal life. However, until early 2019 the blog will be on hold. 

Until that time keep an eye out on my Twitter as I will do the occasional tweet there now and then. (@BMWavesBlog)

Finally, to keep things tidy, normally at the end of the year I would write numerous posts on my favourite albums of the year. I hope I have sufficient excuse not to do that amount of writing this time, but for the record, in no particular order except alphabetical, here is my top 10, which is unlikely to change between now and the end of the year as I won’t be listening to anything new.
