Best of 2008: The Lists Start Now

The editors of the Interference Pop Culture Webzine invite the posters on JTB&TC to start compiling their Best of 2008 lists, to help inspire our annual end-of-year round-up on the mainpage.

I do recall wanting to have y'all's results posted with ours, but on looking up the story from 340-some days ago, I don't see that we did that. I hope this year will be different. I love the collective view on this board, and I plan to do something with LemonMelon's best 100 of all time soon.

To refresh your memory, this is what Kim and I did last year:
Variety Is the Spice of Life – Your Editors Weigh in on 2007’s Best Music : U2 Interference - U2 Fans, Pop Culture Webzine, & More

So bring your top 8, 18, or 80; your top 10, 20, or 200. Just bring it on.

May the listing begin!

Stand up to rock stars!

The album name is actually Oracular Spectacular.

I thought it came out in 2007, though.

EDIT - yeah, just checked wiki. First released digitally in 2007, although the retail CD came out in January.
