Best Of 2008

(1/2) > >>

I've started to think about my top albums of 2008 and am wondering if anyone else here has thoughts on what their favourites would be.

I'm also fishing for suggestions, as once again I failed to make notes as the year progressed, so am struggling to even remember what came out this year that I liked, especially from early on.

So please, if anyone else does have thoughts, post them up. Here's the scrappy list that I've generated so far, to be duly pruned, tidied and ordered:

Deerhunter - Microcastle (4AD)
Desalvo - Mood Poisoner (Rock Action)
Fuck Buttons - Street Horrrsing (ATP)
Euros Childs - Cheer Gone (Wichita)
Mogwai - The Hawk Is Howling (Matador)
Portishead - Third
Spiritualized - Songs In A & E
Keiji Haino & Tatsuya Yoshida - Uhrfasudhasdd (Tzadik)
Keiji Haino - The 21st Century Hard-Y-Guide-Y Man (PSF)
Grails - Doomsayers Holiday
Cloudland Canyon
Torche - Meanderthal
Don Caballero - Punkgasm
Harvey Milk
Rhys Chatham
The Drift

I've deliberately omitted rereleases so far, hoping to do a separate list for those.

Seazer 5CD+bonusCD

Having reissues listed separately is just one of my own little foibles, don't worry.

Maybe showing myself up, but I've never heard any J.A. Seazer, by the way.

Myself, i only came to know of Mr. Julious Arnest (Seazer/ Cezar/ シーザー) reading of the ‘60’s scene, cinema, Terayama, etc. So, sought and only previously heard “Kokkyou Junreika” (1973, what was an LP’s worth, subsequently expanded on 5CD+bonusCD)  & “Shinto Kumaru” (1978) both on Belle Antique (ベルアンティーク) and rereleased a year ago (in the original, shorter version).

Next week, still being 2008, comes an almost diminutive Jacks 40th Anniversary 2CD+bonusCD  set…
It’s for the reissue/ remaster list of ‘best of 2008’?!
Presented on Nippon Nipper’s ‘SHMCD’ – apparently, it’s SACD except it actually plays on CD players… ::)
First two albums “Vacant World” and “Super Session” with alternate single versions tacked on plus “Echoes in the Radio”(non-‘SHMCD’) all previously issued by EMI.
But, I think it comes with a poster too.

Better than the “Jacks CD Box”(SFD, Solid) 7-CD,  1,000 limitation set some 20 years ago?
Well, another hundred pound difference…
...thus causing me to stray into
"...vs Yahoo!オークション watch" territory… .
