Best of 2008: Albums
I can’t tell you how surprising a musical year 2008 turned out to be. I went in thinking it would be one thing, and ended the year with more new artists dominating my listening habits than any year in recent memory. The volume of new discoveries was only bested by the quality: this past year has given me a slew of artists (especially numbers one and two on this list) I will lovingly follow for years to come.
This list admittedly has a lot of gaps. If it’s not on here, I didn’t hear it. I bought more albums this year than ever before, but a lot of my purchases were devoted to catching up on things I missed out the first time. So rest assured anything not on this list I will get to in due time.
