Top 10 + 1 Albums of 2008
2008 gave us A LOT of fantastic new albums. Here are my top 11 in no particular order...
The Dandy Warhols - …Earth to the Dandy Warhols
I heart The Dandy Warhols SO BAD!!! They can do no wrong – my only complaint is they need to tour NYC more often!!
Bloc Party – Intimacy
I didn’t see this album on any Top Lists of 2008 which is a terrible tragedy!!
Santogold – Santogold
This album is a fun, fun time.
Beck – Modern Guilt
Another phenomenal album – THANK YOU BECK
KOL’s best album to date.
Conor Oberst – Conor Oberst
A fabulous first solo album for Oberst. There are so many good songs I can’t pick a favorite.
Death Cab for Cutie – Narrow Stairs
I don’t think Death Cab can make a bad album.
MGMT – Oracular Spectacular
Totally this year’s hipster trend album – but with good reason!
Blitzen Trapper – Furr
I fell in love with “Black River Killer” and the rest of the album followed suit.
R.E.M. – Accelerate
When I got my iPod and transferred all of my old CD’s I fell in love with R.E.M. all over again. It was great to have a new album and see them on tour in 2008.
The Virgins – The Virgins
Great entertaining, dance-y first album. I hope they keep up the momentum!
