Bigger Than The Sound: The Year's Best Albums

Posted by: Steve Henderson (12/17/08)
Well, you crapped on him for his selections for the year's best songs, so why not see if you agree with James Montgomery's list of 2008's Best Albums a little more? For added entertainment, James tossed up another video of his thoughts. Don't forget to delight in the comments from rabid Britney loyalists as well.

Happy that M83 is on.

Stoked Gaslight is on there - he must have been afraid of getting stoned to death by ap.net readers.

Great blurb for that record...captures my thoughts perfectly.

Pretty.Odd over Tha Carter III and Vida la Vida? Although I agree Pretty.Odd was pretty unfairly judged and looked over by the majority, I don't think I would have it in my top 25 albums of the year.

not a terrible list but i can't judge fully because i never heard a lot of the hip indie bands on the list.

The Plastic Constellations are great. The Gaslight Anthem too, of course. They're both on mine. Never heard or listened to any of the others.

I tastefully disagree, although I did enjoy Pretty.Odd and think it is an incredibly underrated album.

PS - Where the fuck is Santogold on this list? Such a good album.

Not a terrible list. I had M83 and The Gaslight Anthem in my top 10. Hell of a lot better than his top songs list.

Tha Carter III was horrible. Viva La Vida was alright, in its own way. But it is HIGHLY overrated. Truthfully, Pretty. Odd. wasn't incredible, but it was better than those two.

And, I agree that Santogold needed to be on there.

Much better than his song list.

Also, is the TV On The Radio album really that good? I've never even listened to this band, but I've seen quite a few lists with it as their #1.

Pretty good list. I agree on the Kanye assessment but not the ranking. Like the Gaslight Anthem up there and completely agree on Pretty.Odd being overlooked. It is a pretty good record and will probably make my top 20.

TV on the radio is great, glad to see them in the first spot, glad to see the Deerhunter album too, even though I don't agree with Portishead being so low in his list, it should be higher and that Girl Talk album is the ultimate party mix, amazing stuff

Great list overall
