Dr. Carter is a good song. The rest is like an instructional tape on how to stroke your own ego.

I do like Dr. Carter, and I think he has some interesting one-liners, along with the weirdness of his voice, and it makes for an enjoyable album.

These are technically due right now, but I only have 11 entries. I'll ask Anu what he thinks, but in the meantime, keep posting your points if you have them.

Thanks for not even acknowledging my request, Limpy. You're dead to me now.

I figured by saying "keep sending them in," I already gave in to your demands. Don't pout.

If there were at least 15 entries, it would make things a bit more interesting.

Hopefully when things get back to normal on Monday after all the holidays, we'll get a few more entries for this and be done.

I will do some rankings if people want to send me albums from this year. I wouldn't be opposed to that.

All I've heard from 2008 is Fleet Foxes, Viva La Vida, Mercy, and Hold on Now, Youngster....

For once in my life, I tried to do this list as fast as possible and without losing any sleep over it, which means I'm probably going to hate the order about 3 minutes after posting it. I may come back and add some comments, tracks to listen to, links, vids, etc. to the list later.


Honorable Mentions: Flight of the Conchords, Frightened Rabbit, The Dutchess and the Duke, Opeth, Kanye West, R.E.M., Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks, Wilderness, Los Campesinos!, Cut Copy, F*ck Buttons, Destroyer, Gnarls Barkley.

20. The Dutchess and the Duke - 'She's the Dutchess, He's the Duke'
19. The Gaslight Anthem – ‘The ’59 Sound’
18. The Walkmen - 'You & Me'
17. My Morning Jacket - 'Evil Urges'
16. TV on the Radio - 'Dear Science'
15. Mogwai - 'The Hawk Is Howling'
14. Portishead - 'Third'
13. The Dodos - 'Visiter'
12. Deerhunter - 'Microcastle'
11. Okkervil River - 'The Stand-Ins'
10. Sigur Ros - 'Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust'
9. Elbow - 'The Seldom Seen Kid'
8. Coldplay - 'Viva La Vida'
7. Bon Iver - 'For Emma, Forever Ago'
6. Shearwater - 'Rook'
5. M83 - 'Saturdays = Youth'
4. Vampire Weekend - self-titled
3. Fleet Foxes - self-titled
2. Los Campesinos! - 'Hold On Now, Youngster...'
1. Why - 'Alopecia'


I actually finished this list in under 2 hrs, fastest time evar!.
