wow i cant believe how many people like manchester orchestra and like so much other shitty stuff at the same time. out of all the albums mentioned i enjoyed say anything, between the buried, manchester orch,...but i cant believe nobodys mentioned the RURAL ALBERTA ADVANTAGE holy hell they came out with the best record ive heard in awhile. and also miniature tigers made an awesome debut. i dunno maybe i have shitty taste but i really can only listen to like 5 percent of the artists mentioned above or anywhere else.
edit: kevin devine is cool, i liked mewithoutyou's other album so ill give the new one a shot. and it sucks i havnt seen alkaline trio's agony and ironybeing mentioned. i mean iknow it gets flamed, but so did crimson when it came out. the good tracks are worth it. also, how can dr. dog not be in everybodies list?
That's why it's called a MID-YEAR top 10. Everything released after June isn't mentioned.
By the way... Dr. Dog was 2008; new album just came out. Alkaline Trio was 2008, too. There you go.
