It seems I've been predicting the year 2008 to be disappointing from the very start. And though comparatively it has nothing on the awesomeness of last year (except more hipster MGMT-whoring), many mostly unexpected albums have been enjoyable in their own right. This was supposed to be a recap but it kind of turned into full reviews for each release, with way too many videos/free mp3 links for your enjoyment. Anyway, here's my best of 2008.Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
- Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!
The only people dismissing this album are:
a. The ones crying "oh, Nick Cave's just making the same album again" - see Stairway to Hell: The 500 Best Heavy Metal Albums in the Universe (a.k.a. There Are Only 100 Good Metal Albums So I'll Just Complain About The Others) author Chuck Eddy's comments that he preferred John Mellencamp's (!!!!!) 2008 release. They didn't listen to it.
b. The ones crying that Nick Cave DIDN'T make the same album again - the same people who hated Murder Ballads because it wasn't serious enough.
