Well, you didn't really think a little power outage was going to keep me from compiling a Best Albums of 2008 list, did you? Nah... not a chance.
As always, these are my favorite albums of '08, not my "objective" picks for albums of highest "quality," per se. So... take these with a grain or three of salt....
01. THE CORAL SEA/firelight
02. FADED PAPER FIGURES/dynamo
03. SONS AND DAUGHTERS/this gift
04. THE ROSEBUDS/life like
05. FRIDA HYVONEN/silence is wild
07. ISLANDS/arm's way
08. FRISKA VILJOR/tour de hearts
09. TILLY AND THE WALL/o
10. THE INDELICATES/american demo
