Re: Uncut 2008 EOY list

An odd number one, because a few weeks ago they gave the award for the 'most rewarding album of the past 12 months' to Fleet Foxes, I suppose they will have to give the prize back to Portishead:) http://www.uncut.co.uk/news/fleet_foxes/news/12440

Re: Uncut 2008 EOY list

Great list, best so far. I usually don't appreciate Uncut's list as a whole. But this was very good.

Guess I'll have to except the fact that VAMPIRE WEEKEND are gunna end well on the year end lists. It pisses me off.

Re: Uncut 2008 EOY list

What about the rest of the top 50 (I'll have to wait a few weeks till the new issue arrives over here)?

Re: Uncut 2008 EOY list

man, when did uncut become so trendy? 5 years ago their top 5 was

1. Warren Zevon – The Wind
2. Emmylou Harris – Stumble Into Grace
3. John Cale – Hobo Sapiens
4. Willard Grant Conspiracy – Regard The End
5. Robert Wyatt – Cuckooland

and they were one of the few music publications i'd pay any attention to. now they're just like all the rest...

Re: Uncut 2008 EOY list

Re: Uncut 2008 EOY list

i know uncut became trendy. but i can't agree with mojo more. they picked portishead's album. i loved the album so much but it seems like nobody really picking it as best.

Re: Uncut 2008 EOY list
