|Final 10 2008|
I figure this is a pretty safe bet at this time of the year. I can't see any new album coming out to replace any of these.
And Heeeere we go!
|1||TV on the Radio|
Listened to this more then anything else this year. Brilliant album.
2nd most listened to album of the year. Another brilliant album full of great vocal melodies and folk inflected guitars.
For Emma, Forever Ago
The top three were all really difficult to choose from. This is another excellent album, very sparse, lush and beautiful
Really good lo-fi folk album. Some nice guitar work and drumming.
|5||Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds|
Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!
Nick Cave is a brilliant lyricist. More News From Nowhere is one of my favourite tracks of the year.
Not a big metal fan. In fact, this is the only metal album I've ever owned. I like the mix of prog metal and classically influenced passages. Some really good stuff
Excellent late entry into the scheme of things. My first Deerhunter experience.
|8||Sun Kil Moon|
The length made it difficult to get all the way through at first. Still, the vocal melodies, while less immediate then Ghosts, are all great. With some good guitar work as well.
|9||Plants and Animals|
Saw these guys for free! Picked up their album, really enjoyable indie.

Well, it's pretty? It's enjoyable. Certainly not one of their best releases, but it was good enough to crack my top 10.
|3, 8, and 10 are for sure in my top 10|
however i still want to listen to 7 and 1
|1,2,3,4,7,8,10 all possibles for my top 15, all make my top 25|
|10 may be in my top 3, 3 would be in my atleast top 10, 4 maybe in my top 20.|
|#6 is amazing, #10 might sneak in my top 20|
|yes to 4, 6, 7 and 8.|
I like the rest as well (except 9, which I haven't heard), but they're never Top 10 canditates for me. 6 and 8 will end up in my top 10, I'm sure, 4 and 7 in my Top 25 and 1, 2, 3 probably in my Top 50.
