Top 10 Albums of 2008

- by contributing writer George J. Moore of The Cryptic Yeast


Putting together a top ten releases of the entire year is quite
the responsibility. I mean, you can turn to the pages of a
any rock magazine and you'll see the top sellers, the most popular
shit, or the most "groundbreaking" or whatever. It makes one
second guess themselves, taking a look at all the releases of the past
year, and there's quite a big chunk I've never heard of or got around
to listening to. Plus, if you only listen to
a few genres of music, how do you know that
the releases on your list are the BEST of that particular
genre that came out this year? So what gives me the right?
I guess i should just go by what i played the most and enjoyed.
