|Mutatedfreek's Top 15 Of 2008|
Merry Christmas to everybody who celebrates it. List is pretty self explanatory.
|1|| ||The Out_Circuit|
Pierce The Empire With A Sound
Absolutely amazing album bursting with a sullen post-apocalyptic atmosphere. In a year when I have been getting into post-hardcore more and more, this experimental album raises the bar on anything else I have had the pleasure to listen to in 2008.
For Emma, Forever Ago
Can't really say much that hasn't already been said, simply stunning.
Catchy, intelligent and above all fun, this is the best 'risk' I took this year, definitely worth the ?10.99 I spent on it and then some.

This Is The Album By A Band Called Adebisi Shank
First real math rock album I listened to and the 28 minute record is superb. Extremely technical without being difficult to listen to, I could put this on anytime and it would feel right.
|5||Late Of The Pier|
Fantasy Black Channel
Fun nu-rave that is as catchy as it is absurd.
|6||Protest The Hero |
Yeah everybody knows about this, and know whether they hate it or love it. Unsurprisingly I am in the latter category.
|7||Kings Of Leon|
Only By The Night
Whilst not as spectacular as I had hoped, this is still a very good album and a brilliant improvement on past releases.
|8|| ||Sigur Ros|
you Know The One I Mean
Beautiful like all other Sigur Ros albums another album I have gone off of late, but it is still awesome.
The Way Of All Flesh
The Alchemy Index Vols III And IV
|14||The Last Shadow Puppets|
The Age Of The Understatement
Thanks to Jom for introducing me to this.
|Special mention for the Moonsorrow and Ikuinen Kaamos E.P's, which would have made this list if I were including them.|
|I just got 7 for xmas. On first listen I like it a lot. The rest I either haven't heard or didn't think much of tbh.|
|I hope you had a great Cristmas Ross. Great list... More varied than I thought it would be, so kudos to you. I also didn't see #1 coming and I'll have to add that to my list of what to listen to in '09. |
|For me the first five tracks on the kings of leon album are amazing, but the rest is a little duller.|
Merry christmas to you too Davey, I think you would enjoy the out_circuit album, probably not as much as I do though.
