And finally, as if from nowhere comes the Fat and Confused top albums of 2008, its been a ridiculously fine year for music and one where due to the world of filesharing i've found myself hearing artists i probably would never have heard. I guess filesharing is an ethical matter, personally i see that it helps the artist and only hits the corporates who rip us off left right and centre, its could turn into a lengthy debate, feel free to add your comments below.
Thanks again to everyone for your support and continued reading of the blog, as always i'll hopefully update more regularly next year. There will be some top fives etc from labels that have supported the blog from paper through to PC that will appear in the next couple of weeks and perhaps a track from each of the albums below to, i've run out of the will to do anymore today...happy reading, hope you discover something new...and feel free to add me as a friend on last fm

All I can say is that 2007 was definitely better than 2006 in terms of albums.
25. Yeasayer-All Hour Cymbals
24. Seabear-The Ghost That Carried Us Away
Icelandic music rules.
23. Au Revoir Simone-The Bird Of Music
Sythesizers are the king of the instrument world
22. Klaxons-Myths of the Near Future
Woop and ooo never went so far.
21. The Go! Team-Proof of Youth
Featuring Chuck D!!!
20. BOAT-Let's Drag Our Feet!
The best stupid album of the year
Shining like a diamond in the middle of thugs.
18. No Age-Weirdo Rippers
31 déc. 2007, 2h43m par Kickcity90325. Panda Bear - Person Pitch
Very relaxing music that keeps echoing back at you in waves. I treat it as if it were an instrumental album because he uses his vocals as a way to play with the space. The first 3 tracks, I keep going back to because they are so good. I'm reminded of being under the stars listening to nature's breathing.
24. Balmorhea - Balmorhea
At one point, this album was in my top 5, but it died on me as I got more and more albums. Not to size it down or anything because it's still a great record for what it is. There's not a lot of 'wow' factors, but it's very friendly to listen to.
23. Giants - They, The Undeserving
The twinkle-crescendo type of post-rock. The entire album stays consistence.
22. Aereogramme - My Heart Has a Wish That You Would Not Go
Gentle voice plus loud guitar makes an interesting combination I would say. I still can't believe this band broke up after this album when their past albums were more 'heavy' so I couldn't get into. …

Shady Bard - From The Ground Up (Static Caravan)
There's something undeniably beautiful about the work of Lawrence Becko's baritone vocals, bound to put some people off, others will just find it that bit more loveable, that bit more human, especially when you hear the wonderful lyrics set to such lovely piano based post rock, never going full on Explosions in the Sky but certainly heading that way towards the finale of the wonderous Penguins. Tracks such as Summer Came When We Were Falling Out and Fires are organic and frail almost amateur in appearance with milk bottle melodies and whistled refrains, acoustic post rock, and much lovelier for it.
The sound is wintry and beautiful yet is as warm as it is cold with enchanting lyrics such as "I think i'll take a walk in the park/ it's a cure for a broken heart" perhaps evoking slight comparisons to bands such as Low or The Tindersticks, maybe even The Twilight Sad in four albums time…
