I like to think I have a broad taste in music and am always open to listening to new stuff. Here are my top 5 albums of 2008. Feel free to download, listen, comment, complain.
1. Only By the Night - Kings of Leon
2. Consolers of the Lonely - The Raconteurs
3. The Red Album - Weezer
4. Vampire Weekend - Vampire Weekend
5. For My Friends - Blind Melon
Honorable Mention: The Odd Couple - Gnarls Barkley, Stay Positive - The Hold Steady, The Carter III - Lil Wayne
I didn't think that anything would be able to beat Consolers of the Lonely, the album is amazing and Jack White tears it up. Then I heard Only By the Night and I can't stop listening to it, every song is great, so solid. The bottom three could really be in any order for me. Weezer put out a really solid album in my opinion and Vampire Weekend is catchy as hell. Blind Melon came back strong, someting I thought could never happen after the passing of Shannon Hoon. It's a very complete album and the addition of Travis Warren was a great choice by the band.
