Top Ten 2008 :: in closing...


Image generated using wordle.net

A good friend posted a note on my Facebook wall...
Liked your top 10 albums of the year. Though what did you think of Bon Iver, Deerhunter and Shearwater??? Surprised they were not up there;)
...and it reminded me that I hadn't explained my one rule of Top Ten albums... and, in fact, posting on the ol' nanolog - I only list albums I have heard.

I have listened to each and everyone of the 39 albums I listed... and have been moved/inspired/touched/energised by them in some way.

I have subsequently picked up The Ting Tings and Alphabeat... and would have included them somewhere if I had heard them prior to posting.

As such... in the spirit of only rating what I consume... I really want to hear the following:
  • You & Me by The Walkmen
  • Silent Movie by Quiet Village
  • Jim by Jamie Lidell
  • Vampire Weekend
  • Saint Dympha by Gang Gang Dance
  • Blood Bank by Bon Iver
  • Microcastle by Deerhunter
  • Rook by Shearwater
  • Lights & Music by Cut Copy
Any other albums to add to this list?

Please check out Refinery29's Top Twenty of 2008 and check out the MP3s they include to sample the album.

2008 was a great year for music... here's to 2009... where I catch up on 2008, hear new stuff & pick up some classics too.
