Top Albums of 2008

I like to make lists. Unfortunately, I didn't always have a place to publish them. My MySpace blog and radio show's LiveJournal had to suffice in the past, but look what I've got now... a real blog!

I usually make a list of the top albums of each year, but I normally wait until a month or two into the year, so I can catch up on the albums I missed or didn't spend enough time with. The problem with that is no one cares about best-of lists that late into the year. (The Oscars aren't until March, but people seem to accept that.) My mind always changes, so the lists are pretty fluid anyway, but I figured I'd post my unpublished list of the top 2008 albums before I hit you with my naive 2009 picks sometime this week. Of course the order of these would be different now and likely include some other albums (Where is Raphael Saadiq's The Way I See It?!?), but I'm gonna post it 'cause I'm gangsta.
