This is the second Top Albums of 2008 list on OwlPellets, the first of which can be found here. You’ll notice that only 1 album overlaps onto both lists, which I’d like to point out is some great diversity which few blogs have 😉 Unfortunately, my top 2 albums of the year also happen to be Pitchfork’s top 2 album’s of the year. But hey, shit happens.
For my 2007 list (which I’d like to add Battles’ Mirrored to- I discoverd that album after the list was made) click here. Though I made a top 20 last year, I wasn’t quite feeling up to that task this time around. So with that, here are my top 10 albums of 2008:
10) MGMT – Oracular Spectacular
9) Girl Talk – Feed the Animals
8.) Ratatat – LP3
7) Sigur Ros (not even going to try to type out the title)
6) Mike Patton – A Perfect Place
5) Hauschka – Ferndorf
4) The Melvins – Nude With Boots
3) The Roots – Rising Down
2) Portishead – Third
1) Fleet Foxes (Self-Titled)
AND, 2009 is off to a great start with Animal Collective’s Merriweather Post Pavilion, definitely worth checking out for all those interested.
