Top 10 of 2008

the definitive top 10, look nowhere else. all you needed to know about 2008 is right here. there were a few albums that very narrowly missed out on this post, namely friendly fires, hercules and love affair and bloc party. generally, a good year for music i would say. shame blackout crew didn't release an album, fingers crossed for '09!

The Top 10...in order no less!!!

Metronomy - Nights Out



undeniably my favourite album of the year. metronomy have touched me in a way i only usually let my girlfriend! and for that, i love them.

The Teenagers - Reality Check



second space was a close call with crystal castles only narrowly missing out. there is something about this album that keeps me coming back for more. i have peter riordan to thank for the teenagers! thanks pete.

Crystal Castles - Crystal Castles



again, another album that i cannot go without listening to for long. if their remix album had been an official release i think it may have also made it in here.

Late of the Pier - Fantasy Black Channel




top stuff! i tried so hard not to like them but it just was not possible.

Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip - Angles



still one of my favourite ever live acts. the more i listen to this the more i like it.

The Presets - Apocalypso



when i first downloaded this album i listened to it quite literally non-stop! i overdid it a bit, but they are still right at the top of my most played list on my ipod after months and months of not playing it.

Kanye West - 808s & Heartbreak



i love kanye! a slightly different direction, very moody and sad but fantastic all the same. sadly i cannot find a link for this one at the moment.

Foals - Antidotes



hours of fun can be had listening to foals...

Vampire Weekend - Vampire Weekend



another band that i tried not to like but i couldn't help it.
