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!
1TV on the Radio
Dear Science

Listened to this more then anything else this year. Brilliant album.
2Fleet Foxes
Fleet Foxes

2nd most listened to album of the year. Another brilliant album full of great vocal melodies and folk inflected guitars.
3Bon Iver
For Emma, Forever Ago

The top three were all really difficult to choose from. This is another excellent album, very sparse, lush and beautiful
4The Dodos

Really good lo-fi folk album. Some nice guitar work and drumming.
5Nick 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.
8Sun 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.
9Plants and Animals
Parc Avenue

Saw these guys for free! Picked up their album, really enjoyable indie.
10 Sigur Ros
Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust

Well, it's pretty? It's enjoyable. Certainly not one of their best releases, but it was good enough to crack my top 10.
