The Best Albums of 2008...

The Best Albums of 2008...

Today is the day my albums of the year list goes up at Chicagoist. The list with write-ups is scheduled to go live later this morning now live, but since you're a loyal reader of this site I'll give you a sneak peak. Keep in mind that these are just the albums that grabbed me by the scruff of the neck and just would not let go in 2008. They aren't all works of high art, but they are all pieces that resonated with me and kept finding their way into regular rotation amongst playlists inhumanly stuffed with a constant influx of new material. This is the stuff that made a mark on me in 2008, and stand a decent chance of still seeping into my headphones awhiles down the road.
