Definitely one of the best years for music, I'll see if I can do an overview of what I have listened to later today.

I have listened to, shockingly, ironically and fittingly, 68 albums from '68 (or at least that's how many I have rated on RYM). Not sure if I even want to break that magic number. :D

Here's my top favorites:

10s - Note, I have only rated 11 albums 10/10 (5 out of 5 on RYM)
The Zombies - Odessey and Oracle (1968)
Ultimate Spinach - Behold & See (1968)
The Band - Music From Big Pink (1968)

9.5s
Pearls Before Swine - Balaklava (1968)
The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band - A Child's Guide to Good & Evil (1968)
The Beatles - The Beatles [White Album] (1968)
Daughters of Albion - Daughters of Albion (1968)

9s
The Five Day Week Straw People - The Five Day Week Straw People (1968)
Creedence Clearwater Revival - Creedence Clearwater Revival (1968)
The United States of America - The United States of America (1968)
Fifty Foot Hose - Cauldron (1968)
Merrell Fankhauser & H.M.S. Bounty - Things (1968)
Jethro Tull - This Was (1968)
The Soft Machine - The Soft Machine (1968)
Ed Askew - Ask the Unicorn (1968)

Not sure if I'll specifically join, but might write up something if I listen to more - and will see what others cover.

1. Peter Brötzmann - Machine Gun
Likeable, need to listen to it a few more times & maybe more relaxed too
