Top 10 Albums of 2008

I had my list done weeks ago and had planned to do the whole blog review thing as I did last year but circumstances mean that I haven't had the time, the energy or the inclination.

The other thing I failed with was to limit the list to 10 ... I did the whole paired decision making process to systematically narrow down a list from 20 to 10 but my number 10 and 11 came out with the same score and I couldn't split them ... therefore, my top 11 of the 2008 are:

11. TV on the Radio - "Dear Science"
10. Sigur Ros - "Með suð í Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust"
09. Conor Oberst - "Conor Oberst"
08. Spiritualized® - "Songs in A&E"
07. The Wedding Present - "El Rey"
06. The Fall - "Imperial Wax Solvent"
05. Glasvegas - "Glasvegas"
04. British Sea Power - "Do You Like Rock Music"
03. Foals - "Antidotes"
02. The Walkmen - "You & Me"
01. Mogwai - "The Hawk is Howling"
