Top albums of 2008

I'd planned to do this like my top songs, revealing each one day by day in a countdown fashion.

Couldn't be arsed. Have a list instead, with a five word description.

14.
Alphabeat - This Is Alphabeat

Good fun Danish euro pop.

13.
Los Campesinos! - We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed

Indifferent collection of album rejects.

12.
Goldfrapp - Seventh Tree

Light floaty pretty ethereal songs.

11.
The Subways - All Or Nothing

Blinding when good, only sometimes.

10.
Operator Please - Yes Yes Vindictive

Australian punk pop cheerful fun.

9.
Jenny Lewis - Acid Tongue

Another disappointingly patchy second album.

8.
Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog OST

Best musical of the year.

7.
Metallica - Death Magnetic

Return to thrash metal form.

6.
Be Your Own Pet - Get Awkward

Second and final album, sadly.

5.
Duke Spirit - Neptune

Superb second album after delays.

4.
Blood Red Shoes - Box Of Secrets

Grunge-punk enjoyable loud debut.

3.
Amanda Palmer - Who Killed Amanda Palmer?

Strangely diversely brilliant solo effort.

2.
Los Campesinos! - Hold On Now, Youngster...

Chirpy happy twee(xcore) international debut.

1.
Johnny Foreigner - Waited Up 'Til It Was Light

Stunning. (Doot doot doot doot)
