2008 Music List

In response to Alex's 2008 Is Almost Over, my opinions on music this year.

-The Best- (the cream of the crop)
Alexander White, Not an Album (Best of '08 by far)
Black Kids, Partie Traumatic
The Cure, 4:13 Dream (name a band older than these guys that put out such an amazing album this year)
The Foxglove Hunt, Stop Heartbeat
Margot and the Nuclear So-and-Sos, Animal! and Not Animal
Tokyo Police Club, Elephant Shell
Your Vegas, A Town and Two Cities

-The Good- (solid, but not the best)
Alkaline Trio, Agony and Irony
As Tall as Lions, Into the Flood
Bon Voyage, Lies
Children of Bodom, Blooddrunk
Chiodos, Bone Palace Ballet (re-release with Bonus Tracks. The original in '07 was amazing, but judging only the new tracks, just Good)
Coldplay, Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends
Counting Crows, Saturday Nights and Sunday Mornings
Dear and the Headlights, Drunk Like Bible Times
Death Cab for Cutie, Narrow Stairs
Joy Electric, My Grandfather the Cubist
Kate Nash, Made of Bricks (technically '07 in Britain, but '08 here)
Senses Fail, Life Is Not a Waiting Room
Starflyer 59, Dial M

-The Meh- (or just hasn't hit me yet)
Armor for Sleep, The Way Out Is Broken
Bloc Party, Intimacy
Damiera, Quiet Mouth Loud Hands
Deastro, Keepers
Keane, Perfect Symmetry
Lightspeed Champion, Falling Off the Lavender Bridge
Portugal. The Man, Censored Colors

-The Bad and/or Ugly- (Letdowns)
Matt Pryor, Confidence Man
Panic at the Disco, Pretty. Odd
