Rank'em as You Hear Them (2008)

Thanks to everyone who particpated in last year's thread. You still have until December 31st, 2007 to post/update that thread before I work up the final tally around the first of the year.

2008 Rank'em as You Hear Them Thread

The rules are simple:

This thread is for ranking albums that are released in 2008 in the United States. This does not include reissues or albums that you have purchased/heard for the first time this year but were released in prior years.

Keep your list in one post (edit!) and keep them in some sort of order (see the second post for my system).

Around mid-year and at the end of the year I will compile a list of the top albums as voted by MusicTalk.

Note: Please don't use a "placeholder" post if you don't actually plan on updating your list.
You know who you are!


Hopefully we can introduce each other to some more good music this year!

Thanks!

As of 16 December 08 - an incomplete update:


Superlative, career-making work.


Hard to top and missing just a small something that would otherwise make it 5 stars.
She & Him - Volume One
Vampire Weekend - Vampire Weekend
Goldfrapp - Seventh Tree
The Helio Sequence - Keep Your Eyes Ahead
Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - Lie Down in the Light
Centro-Matic/South San Gabriel - Dual Hawks


Excellent album but still room for improvement.

Cat Power - Jukebox
Malkmus, Stephen & the Jicks - Real Emotional Trash
Coldplay - Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends

Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes
Bloc Party - Intimacy
Frightened Rabbit - The Midnight Organ Fight
Frightened Rabbit - Quietly Now!

I enjoy it, but there's something missing.
Tapes 'n Tapes - Walk It Off

Middle of the road, I don't actively dislike it but I probably won't listen to it much either. For older artists, it means it's completely forgettable by comparison.
Gnarls Barkley - The Odd Couple
Animal Collective - Water Curses EP
The Black Crowes - Warpaint
Magnetic Fields - Distortion


Hmm. I can't get into it at all. Heading into active dislike.
The Cure - 4:10 Dream


No Sir, I don't like it.


I actively dislike it and would rather jab my ears out with cotton swabs.


Shoot me before playing this, please.

*due to it being a comedy album, it will remain unranked in the year's 10 best

OK. Here's the list, based on what I listened to and liked the most. In some cases, artist merit be damned as long as I still enjoyed listening to it.


1. The Stills - Oceans Will Rise
2. Kings Of Leon - Only by The Night
3. Longwave - Secrets Are Sinister
4. Nada Surf - Lucky
5. Gaslight Anthem - The '59 Sound
6. Coldplay - Viva La Vida
7. Panic At The Disco - Pretty. Odd.
8. Death Cab For Cutie - Narrow Stairs
9. Gavin Rossdale - Wanderlust
10. MGMT - Oracular Spectacular
11. The Kooks - Konk

17. AC/DC - Black Ice
18. Def Leppard - Songs From The Sparkle Lounge
19. Feeder - Silent Cry
20. Alice Cooper - Along Came A Spider


EXTRA SPECIAL MENTION Radiohead - In Rainbows
- Why? Because depending on how you look at it, this album was either released last year (online), or this year (officially in stores). Since it was also on my list for last year, I felt it unfair to have it here again. BUT, I also listened to the album far, far more this this year than last, and as such, in review, it should have had a much higher rating then, and would likely be #1 if I were including it this year.

Honorable mentions...or albums that were good to o.k., yet not great. And/or for some reason or other, I didn't enjoy as much, or just didn't stick with me. (in no specific order)

The Black Crowes - War Paint
The Black Keys - Attack & Release
R.E.M. - Accelerate
Ours - Mercy (Dancing For The Death Of An Imaginary Enemy)
Whitesnake - Good To Be Bad
Journey - Revelation
South - You Are Here
We Are Scientists - Brain Thrust Mastery
Big Head Todd & The Monsters - All The Love You Need
Supergrass - Diamond Hoo Ha
The Chevelles - Barbarella Girl God
Sloan - Parallel Play
The Killers - Day & Age
Bloc Party - Intimacy
Lindsey Buckingham - Gift Of Screws
Ryan Adams & The Cardinals - Cardinology
Scott Weiland - Happy In Galoshes
Todd Rundgren - Arena
Matthew Sweet - Sunshine Lies
