Re: Blender's Top 33 Albums Of 2008

jlnfrtn, many thanks for this list as well.

I Imagine...

this is the only list E=MC2 will appear on. My!

Re: Blender's Top 33 Albums Of 2008

I've only heard 3 of these. (Badu, Cave and Newman if anyone's keeping score..)

Re: Blender's Top 33 Albums Of 2008

I've heard 20. Is that a reflection on my character?

Re: Blender's Top 33 Albums Of 2008

This is list is bad. What a terrible year!

Re: Blender's Top 33 Albums Of 2008

Well this wasn't a great year for music, but more importantly, Blender is just a terrible magazine.

Re: Blender's Top 33 Albums Of 2008

This wasn't that bad of a year for music, Blender just missed most of the good stuff. Seriously, what a crappy list.

Re: Blender's Top 33 Albums Of 2008

Just like everywhere, there was lots of great music this year. You just have to look for it.

Re: Blender's Top 33 Albums Of 2008

I make it a point to listen to everything I read of in the many magazines I purchase on a weekly basis. This was a crappy year compared to last year. I may have listened to approximately 350 albums. I only find a handful that I can truely appreciate.

Re: Blender's Top 33 Albums Of 2008

Maybe try listening to a few albums more than once or twice.

Re: Blender's Top 33 Albums Of 2008

JR - What is your obsession with Mariah Carey? Each time she's on a list you have to make some comment about how it's a bad list or how it will be the only list she appears on. Who cares? What does that matter to your life?

Re: Blender's Top 33 Albums Of 2008

it's still not as bad a year as 05. Block Party @ #5 alone pretty much sums up how bad it was.

Re: Blender's Top 33 Albums Of 2008

oh, i can't believe this, Metallica "Death Magnetic" 4th?

i'm a true headbanger, and i can say that this isn't the best metal album of the year, in my opinion "Death Magnetic" is a bad album. In my opinion the best metal album of the year so far is: Ayreon - 01011001. This is not very heavy, maybe you, from the forum, would like it, full of great melodies and some of the best metal singer nowadays.
