    Album sales may dip every year all around the world, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still those special records that millions of people can’t help but purchase. The list of the bestselling titles of 2018 has just been released, and it’s a healthy mix of typical chart-toppers, a surprising number of soundtracks and even a few internationally-adored acts that are new to these types of rankings.

    It usually takes a while — a decade or two — before we can look back at a particular era of American life and see it as something coherent, something whose every aspect is marked by one overarching mood. It takes a certain amount of hindsight to notice how all the wildly different reactions people had to the moment were still, in the end, reactions to the same thing; all the different poses they adopted were still being struck against the same backdrop.

According to figures published by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America), the value of total stateside album sales in the first half of 2018 (across download, CD and vinyl) plummeted by 25.8 percent when compared with the first half of 2017.

    I was not considering streaming as a path toward revenue. I knew Spotify paid less than pennies per stream, and I was honestly too busy with my head down, running my project, to complain at the perceived lack of monetary support. Much to my surprise, running on an eight-month delay, streaming royalties began trickling in, and the first sum I withdrew from my TuneCore account was the largest amount of money that had ever been in my bank account.
