26 Jan 2009, 20:21 by spokoOK, I really wanted to get this done a couple of weeks earlier, but last year I just missed an album that would have been at or near the top of my list. So for the last few weeks I've been poring over a lot of 2008 stuff that I hadn't gotten around to yet. I've still missed a lot of stuff, undoubtedly. But I've discovered or rediscovered some stuff that will now show up on the list, and that otherwise I might never have given enough time to. So, here we go.
1. Thao and the Get Down Stay Down—We Brave Bee Stings And All
The only 2008 album on which I've given every song at least three stars. Oddly, I haven't given any of them five. Still, I have to put it at the top for being so consistently good. Plus, hey, this is the one that you won't see showing up on many other lists. Got to give it some love.
"Bag of Hammers", "Swimming Pools", "Yes, So On And So On"
2. Noah and the Whale—Peaceful, The World Lays Me Down

3 Jan 2009, 05:35 by Tsauro2008 was a great year for music. A Top 10 does not give it justice. So many great bands left off this list.....but still here is my offer for the recently ended year.
10. The Kooks - Konk
Great power pop from a band that is not aiming toward my demographic, but hey I love it anyway!
9. Missy Higgins - On a Clear Night
Terrific singer-songwriter album that manages to avoid the cliches. Absolutely wonderful live.
8. Nada Surf - Lucky
Hooks, hooks, more hooks, and makes me sway in the imagined wind.
7. The Action Design - Never Say
Band that caught me by surprise while co-headlining with one of my favorites. Ten Feet of Snow from this offer is a classic. My favorite live set from the entire year.
6. Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers - Turbo Ocho
Southwestern independent rock at it's best. If you have not checked this band out before, do it now, not Mañana.
5. Seven Mary Three - DAY&NIGHTDRIVING
2 Jan 2009, 06:32 by mpurses10. MGMT - Oracular Spectacular
There have been many bands that have attempted the style of MGMT this year with the Electro-pop genre with a disco, funk mixed in. But they are one of the few that actually made it listenable. Must play loud.
9. Girl Talk - Feed the Animals
A mix of just about everything! awesome!
8. Frightened Rabbit - The Midnight Organ Fight
Scootish.. Gotta love it.
7. Kings of Leon - Only by the Night
Had to throw in some Kings of Leon love... This album is definately one of their bests!
6. Flobots - Fight With Tools
I'm usually not into the hip-hop/rap-ish style that much, or into Political lyrics, but this album flows like no other, amazing sound, amazing use of instruments, pretty dang good, try it out!
5. The Submarines - Honeysuckle Weeks
Sure one of their songs, You, Me and The Bourgeoisie, is in an Apple commercial, sure Blake Hazard isn't too bad to look at, and her voice even more amazing. Those aside, this is one of those albums that makes you happy no matter what :)
