My Top 10 Albums of 2008

2008 was a great year, i guess. Really flew bye. well anyhow after doing some research I learned that people love top 10 lists. I present to you, in my opinion, The Top Ten Music Albums of 2008!

#10 Of Broken - The Panic

  • Found out about this band around 6 months ago, they are very solid, great rock, just the right amount of heaviness
#9 Drum Major Instinct - Back to The Sun

  • Back to the Sun is the fabulous solo-effort by the former vocalist of uprising Reggae Rock studs Rebelution. There is an amazing flow to the album with soothing lyrics and great surf/mellow tunes to keep you movin.

#8 Slightly Stoopid - Slightly Not Stoned Enough to Eat Breakfast Yet Stoopid

  • Slighty Stoopid released a "slightly" new album this year with a few new tracks but mostly previously released. One of my favorite reggae rock bands out there and this album doesn't dissapoint.
#7 Rise Against - Appeal to Reason

  • One of my most anticipated albums of 2008, and to be honest when I first heard it I was pretty dissapointed. It lacked Rise Against's signature heavy punk sound that was heard in previous albums, but after listening thru it several times it hooked. I am open to the change, and as it is one of my least favorite rise against albums, it is still a very very good album.
#6 Secret and Whisper - Great White Whale

  • Discovered this band through one of my band websites. Once I had a listen I knew I had found an amazingly talented new band. I'de say this album has the best tracklisting on this Top 10 list, as every song on the album is a favorite. very consistent album, always a plus for any music fan.
#5 Tea Leaf Green - Raise Up the Tent

  • Found out about this great jam-band thru my brother Mike. great feel good album
#4 Valencia - We All Need A Reason to Believe

  • One of my favorite bands 2nd full length album release. About as poppy as I get, Valencia finds a way to always lure me in with their catchy lyrics.
#3 The Used - Shallow Believer

  • Not much here, anyone that knows me knows that The Used is on the top of my all time favorite bands. This album is more like a greatest hits cd and features all the songs I've always loved to rock out to
#2 Stick Figure - Burnin' Ocean

  • Best reggae album out there today. what makes it more special is that all songs are made by one musician. when I'm in my mellow music moods, this is always my GO TO
#1 UnderOath - Lost In The Sound of Separation

  • With the completely opposite sound than my #2 album of the year, I without a doubt name Underoaths Lost in the Sound of Seperation my NUMBER ONE ALBUM OF THE YEAR. It is hard to believe this band is a Christian band, as their sound and lyrics are overshadowed with gut-wrenching screams, mind blastering guitar riffs and ear ringing drum beats. Their genre can be classified as metalcore/screamo. As about as heavy of music that my ears can take, Underoath’s - Lost in The Sound of Separation is an extremely heavy hitting album yet provides the adrenaline to last a lifetime. Being a big fan of this grammy nominated band, this new album is my favorite of their six studio albums. So if you are looking for an unpredictable, ear-splitting, full of ferocity and melody, this is the band and album for you. But don’t tell me I didn’t warn you, it hits your speakers pretty hard.

Runner Ups Include: Blues Traveler - North Hollywood Shootout, Natural Incense - Step Inside, High Tide - Play Me Reggae

Keep your music ears open, you never know when you will be recommended or told about your soon to be favorite band.
