Re: Mojo Magazine: The 50 Best Albums of 2008

I'm actually pretty chagrined at how early Paste, Mojo, and Rough Trade have made their lists. Some great stuff can come out later this month and in December, and they're gonna get short-ended.

At least wait for the Kanye and Los Campesinos!.

Re: Mojo Magazine: The 50 Best Albums of 2008

Some good surprises in this list : Pete Molinari, Eli Paperboy Reed, James Hunter.

find personal injury lawyer

Re: Mojo Magazine: The 50 Best Albums of 2008

Have to say, this list is fairly accurate. I would replace a few, but to each his own.

Maybe have a separate list for hip hop?
