With the close of 2008, I wanted to put together a list of some of my favorite albums from 2008. These are in no particular order:
MGMT-Oracular Spectacular: Along with Electric Feel. this electropop CD is really fun and music that you're never heard before. I was instantly smitten by the electronic duo.
Kanye West-808's and Heartbreak: This 4th studio album was an emotional yet danceable tracks. Although West deters from the rap focus of this previous cd's, these songs are really goo.
Kings of Leon-Only By the Night: I got this album recently from my sister and when I first listened, I was taken aback by the lead vocalist, Caleb Followill has a soothing sound that captivates you upon first listen.
Kids of Survival-Good 'Til Your Heart Pops: I saw this band at Angels & Kings earlier this year. This was their debut cd and it is a great mix of powerpop rock music with emotional lyrics.
Lady GaGa-The Fame: This is a really good pop cd. Lady GaGa is a great up-and-coming artist. We will definately see more of her in 2009.
Gym Class Heroes: The Quilt: The title of the album exhibits the band's ability to mesh together all different types of music. They have definately expanded on their rock/rap sound.
