Another year... For me it was the year of ambient and modern classical sounds but also of good minimal music. As in 2007 it was very, very hard to choose and place all the albums of 2008. This year from 170 records I chose a hundred, so it was harder than a year ago when I placed albums in Top 50. So here we go:

  • Stefflbw

    Thanks for the heads-up! Fantastic list. I was rather underwhelmed by several new releases (e.g. Max Richter, but it's growing on me) and I can't get an ear in for Fennesz. I've liked quite a few of the albums on your list, but most of them I dunno. Will investigate some. The new Bohren & der Club of Gore should really be on that list. And Felicia Atkinson with Sylvain Chauveau - Roman anglais (2008) also. cheers :)

  • Naicob

    no, no, bardzo fajna lista, naprawdę. chociaż brakuje mi paru ciekawych pozycji. szczególnie zwróciłbym uwagę na bardzo świeży i najbardziej pozytywny (moim skromnym zdaniem) album roku: El Guincho - Alegranza. pozdrawiam ;]

    5 jan. 2009, 22h05m
  • bugsonglass

    mostly good music on the list but maybe the hype got the better of you when it came to the bug and portishead. two truly terrible - even unlistenable i would say - albums. oh well :)

    6 jan. 2009, 16h46m
  • orkestrark

    you definitely should drop a monthly list of your top albums, not only clubbing. your year-end list is a must.

    8 jan. 2009, 17h10m
  • InKursion

    Excellent list, agree with a lot of it :] Now get to work putting all of them on [spam] Haha :p
