Music Of The Year: 2008
I don't listen to a lot of music, certainly not relative to how many movies I watch. But I've bought thirteen albums from 2008, and listened to eleven of them enough to give them a ranking (apologies to Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks and David Byrne & Brian Eno).
1. Hilary Hahn - Schoenberg & Sibelius: Violin Concertos
2. The Magnetic Fields - Distortion
3. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!
4. Thomas Newman - WALL-E Soundtrack
5. Bob Dylan - Bootleg Series 8: Tell Tale Signs
6. Annette Hanshaw - Sita Sings The Blues Soundtrack
7. Melody Gardot - Worrisome Heart
8. Guns N' Roses - Chinese Democracy
9. Neil Diamond - Home Before Dark
10. Noah And The Whale - Peaceful, The World Lays Me Down
11. Weezer - The Red Album
