My Top 5 Albums of 2008
December 21, 2008 § Leave a comment
There is really truly only one requirement for getting onto my year-end list: An album has to withstand the test of time, which, for me, means many repeated listens. (It’s not unusual for me to sit at work listening to just one album for an entire day [thanks to the fact that I can’t figure out how to take my iPod off ‘repeat’] and then listen to it while driving to and from work; it’s absent-minded, but it also lets the ones I truly love seep into my brain.) Anyway — that is the condition. These are the five that grabbed me most this year — I’m going to reveal one a day for the next however many days, unless I forget one day, in which case you will have to wait an extra day.
