|The Best Albums Of 2008|
These are the albums I found to be the strongest in the year 2008.
While overly long, even by concept album standards, "01011001" is a marvel of
a record, with some of the most challenging prog out on the market.

Perhaps the most unique live album I've ever heard, "Domkirke" is a revelation,
highlighted by an outstanding vocal performance on the track "Why Dost Thou
Hide Thyself in Clouds?"
An unusually optimistic record for the band, "Schoolyard Ghosts" features some
of the band's most beautiful work.

The Bees Made Honey in the Lion's Skull
Earth's strongest recording, "Bees" is a beautifully repetitive record, full of
hypnotic music that is sure to captivate anyone willing to listen.
A culmination of all of Wilson's projects, "Insurgentes" blends post-rock, metal,
ambient, drone, noise, and beautiful balladry into an album that stands alone as
a work of art.
