Best of '08

Views: 1,300
Comments: 1
So, went through 2008 this week and picked out my top 5 albums.  Bit of a struggle as there were quite a lot of good albums but few that were mind-blowingly amazing.

1. Natural Snow Buildings - The dance of the moon & the sun (6 disc set)
2. Golden Jooklo Age - Tropical Trip
3. Boduf Songs - How to chase the balance
4. We Have Heaven - s/t
5. Laura Marling - Alas I cannot swim

There were dozens of others that could have easily ended up in that list, including...

Ilyas Ahmed - Arroyo
Brethren of the Free Spirit - All things are from him, through him and in him
Milton Cross - Light in the west
Goodwillies - Greenmachines for all the childrens
Rahdunes - Magick
Sloow Road - Sloow road
Twinsistermoon - Rivers of blood ending in the sun

and the latest love...

Kawaguchi Masami's New Rock Syndicate - Live in Japan 2007

Lots of odd ones this year to pick through and still a load more to hear.

If you have a list of favourites of 2008 please feel free to post a comment with them, always interested to find out what great stuff has been missed.

Every year it transpires that I have heard less and less of your 'best of' list. This year I've heard of two, Laura Marling and of course Boduf Songs, but I haven't heard either of those records.

I haven't made a formal list (I don't think I can be bothered), but the records I liked best (no order), have been:

The Bronx - The Bronx
Rolo Tomassi - Hysterics
Cursed - III: Architects of Troubled Sleep
Thrice - Alchemy Index Vols 3/4

But there were a lot more that were just 'solid', if you get me. Blacklisted, This Will Destroy You, The Gaslight Anthem, bits of Frank Turner.
