My Facebook status reflects that I am currently considering my Top 10 Albums of 2008. I did mention on here a few weeks ago that I was organizing all my musical acquisitions; that complete list is now pretty much complete, and even though we're only in the first week of November I'm already going over everything and making sure I give each eligible album a proper listen.

That said, I'm sure there's quite a lot that I missed. In that last entry I said that of the 110 albums I added to my collection this year, only 30 were albums that came out this year, and 4 of those albums were comedy albums; that's not really a hell of a lot to go over. So, then, I would love hearing from you guys what I missed and what I should check out.

For the record, here's the 26 albums that are under consideration. I believe they will be listed in the order in which I got them. (The 4 comedy albums will be listed also, just in case there's something in that category that you'd recommend.) EDIT: Just realized I forgot one. The numbers have been adjusted accordingly.

1. Cornelius, "Gum"
2. The Big Sleep, "Sleep Forever"
3. Elbow, "Seldom Seen Kid"
4. R.E.M., "Accelerate"
5. French Kicks, "Swimming"
6. M83, "Saturdays=Youth"
7. Del the Funky Homosapien, "11th Hour"
8. Death Cab for Cutie, "Narrow Stairs"
9. Dosh, "Wolves and Whistles"
10. Black Keys, "Attack and Release"
11. Raconteurs, "Consolers of the Lonely"
12. Girl Talk, "Feed the Animals"
13. Sigur Ros, "Med sud I eyrum vid spilum endalaust"
14. Tokyo Police Club, "Elephant Shell"
15. Beck, "Modern Guilt"
16. Fleet Foxes, "Fleet Foxes"
17. BSS presents Brendan Canning, "Something for All of Us"
18. The Dodos, "Visiter"
19. TV on the Radio, "Dear Science"
20. Dungen, "4"
21. Deerhoof, "Offend Maggie"
22. Don Caballero, "Punkgasm"
23. Blitzen Trapper, "Furr"
24. The Sea and Cake, "Car Alarm"

    So I guess I'm retiring this blog. Part of me feels like I need to make some sort of eulogy or something; part of me just wants to move on already.…
