Re: EOY 2008 - MAGIC Magazine

Thanks BriceC!

I suppose the MGMT single should be something else than "Oracular Spectacular" (which is the album)?

Re: EOY 2008 - MAGIC Magazine

True. It's a typo from the magazine.

Looking at the writers' individual lists, there are mentions for both MGMTs "Kids" & "Time to pretend", but "Time to pretend" gets nominated more times, so I suggest putting "Time to pretend" at #9.

Re: EOY 2008 - MAGIC Magazine

Yeah! The first list to have Vampire Weekend at #1! I think this was the only one out of the most acclaimed albums that hadn't received a first position yet!
