2008 is almost over

We’ve had some really awesome music come out this year, from Motley Crue’s Saints of Los Angeles to Metallica’s Death Magnetic, Guns N’ Roses’ Chinese Democracy to Extreme’s Saudades de Rock. I’m not sure where those discs will fall in my top ten list for 2008, but I know what will top the list…Alice Cooper’s Along Came A Spider. This album from the original shock rocker grabbed me immediately when I heard it in July, and hasn’t let go since. I’ll post my list in a few weeks after I’ve had time to mull it over, and to let the GNR settle into place. It has gone up and down my list quite a bit over the past couple of weeks, and I’m not sure where it will finally sit when I’ve had time to fully digest it. (And yes, I still intend to write a review of the disc.)

What about you? Any 2008 albums that have caught you off-guard as really good, or on the flip side, any that you wished you had never heard?

  1. I’m starting to think about my top-10 as well…although I’m trying to make myself wait another week or two to write up a list, haha. I really like comparing preferences with others…I have to say, GNR is probably in my top ten. Alice…I still need to get that! The Crue album I didn’t like as much as I wanted to like…the whole thing sounded “forced” to me. All in all, you’re right…we have had some great music this year. It’s going to be hard to narrow some of them down.
