Over at living in misery, I have been counting down my top 32 albums of 2008. Last year, I counted down 31 – one for each day of December, but this year I’m going all the way to 32. For each record, I wrote a 32-word review, the moment when I knew it was a good album, and the killer-to-filler ratio.

With ten days left in Decmeber, I am down to my top ten. For those who missed the first 22, here’s a recap…

32. Brendan Canning
31. Crooked Fingers
30. Tapes ‘n Tapes
29. Calexico
28. The Black Keys
27. Mason Jennings
26. Police Tokyo Club
25. Conor Oberst
24. Beck
23. Joan of Arc
22. Bonnie “Prince” Billy
21. Sun Kil Moon/Beach House
20. No Age

4 Thoughts on “The Albums of 2008: A review so far

    Pretenders Break up the Concrete had better be on that list!

    No. No Nickleback. Sorry, there will also be no Pretenders record. I only heard some of it on NPR. It sounds good, but I didn’t buy it.

  4. There is some stuff up there I haven’t heard that I need to dig into, that’s for sure.
