IMO, this has been a pretty good year for music. I thought we should have a thread to talk about some of our favorite albums of 2008 and what were looking forward to for the rest of the year.
Weezer - Red Album
My favorite album of 2008 (so far). It's so incredibly good. Weezer can be hit and miss with their albums, but this one is a definite HIT.
Nine Inch Nails - The Slip
Sure it was free, but that doesn't mean it's not good. Not their best album ever, but a middle of the road NIN album is better than most other stuff out there.
Neil Diamond - Home Before Dark
It's so good. Probably would be my favorite of 2008 if it weren't for Weezer. Even if your not a fan of "The Neil" this one is worth checking out.
R.E.M. - Accelerate
Definitely their best album in a few years. The energy of Automatic for the People or Monster is there and it's great to hear.
B52's - Funplex
Fun is in the title, and it sure is fun. I love this album. Hard to listen to this in the car because I want to get up and dance.
Jack Johnson - Sleep Through the Static
Great songwriting, great mellow record to just chill out and listen to.
Kings X - XV
Their best album in the last few. After 20 years, they still rock. Hoping to be able to catch them live this year.
Future releases I'm looking forward to:
Aerosmith - Untitled (release TBD)
Fugees - Untitled (release TBD)
Peter Gabriel - I/O (2009)
No Doubt - Untitled (2009)
U2 - Untitled (release TBD)
