They were all solid albums. I especially partial to Erykah's, though. The Healer is still my shit.

CO-SIGNED. Q-Tip also put on one of the best live shows I've seen all year.

I've only even heard of six of these. (I only know about Metallica because my favorite sports talk guy couldn't stop gushing about it.).

Katy Perry's recording career is a crime against humanity.

TV on the Radio and Erykah Badu are the only ones who deserve to be on that list.

Of Montreal's album is the worst piece of shit I've heard all year.

Hey, Santogold. :D

yeah, I feel Santogold's album should be much further up on that list!

Erykah, maybe...and I haven't even heard the album yet.
Santogold, maybe.
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, I'd say eh. *blah*
I like Bright Eyes, mostly.

This is definitely not my personal "best" list for 2008, but then again I'm not a vapid, callow consumer who'll listen to whatever is being played on the latest GAP commercial.

Aw. Santogold was on one of those. *snickers* The rest can blow it out their asses. Also, VAMPIRE WEEKEND IS THE WORST OF THE WORST BAND I HAVE EVER HAD THE MISFORTUNE OF LAYING MY INDIE EARS ON. Fucking hipster garbage entry level trash music.

I'm glad someone finally said it. I really don't get why people keep gushing over them. Not only is their music not good, it's not really memorable either.

So basically they just listed the first 33 albums that they could name from this year. w/e.

And for the record just because an album is currently the best seller of the year, this does not make it the best album of the year. LIL WAYNE. No one is going to convince me that his label didn't buy back at least half his shit to get that number.

I refuse to believe that the best album of the year was made by a roach.
