Top 100 Albums 2008
Part [6] from #60. to #51.

[This time the missing artist from the playlist is Peter Broderick]

#60. The Teenagers - Reality Check
The only reason of this album to be on this list is that I really enjoyed it and nothing more. I would admit that there is not variety on the sound of this album and there are also some tracks that could be considered almost identical. However, Reality Check is a fresh and sweet record about the teenage years of our lives.
Listen: "Homecoming"

#59. Evangelicals - The Evening Descends
The Evening Descends is a well-made album that successfully gathers a great variety of sounds. It has a concept of things that take place at night but that would not be considered as a turn off.
Nice melodies, interesting lyrics and a bit of psychedelia.
Listen: "Stoned Again"

#58. A Weather - Cove
A Weather release this indie-folk beautiful album. Harmonic and quiet with charming vocals and guitar melodies. A joyful and touching album that will never make you feel bored. If you are also a fan of "Iron & Wine" this is must have album.
Listen: "Spiders and Snakes"

#57. The Killers - Day & Age
This album arrived unexpectedly and landed in no.57. "Day & Age" is the new album of one of the most popular indie bands in the world "The Killers". Their new outcome is well-crafted as always but I would say that this time they include a disco-pop approach to their music that adds more interest.
Listen: "Human"

#56. British Sea Power - Do You Like Rock Music?
This is rock music! "Do you Like Rock Music" is a must have album with epic rock songs! An alternative title for this album could be: "Rock music at its best." No Comments.
Listen: "Waving Flags"

#55. Hammock - Maybe They Will Sing For Us Tomorrow
When it comes to Hammock, silence and secrecy are the two main elements of their work. This quiet and "beat-less" album delivers a sense of slow-motion movements in the whole atmosphere. Press play and set your imagination free, everything is possible.
Listen: "Mono No Aware"

#54. Peter Broderick - Float
One more excellent record released by "Type Records".
Peter Broderick's work on "Float" is amazing. A contemporary classical music album with ambient lullabies waiting to flourish as soon as your eyes get dry.
Listen: "Something Has Changed"

#53. The Walkmen - You & Me
After this magnificent album "The Walkmen" gained the respect they deserve. Simply their best album. Every song a different story, amazing music and a bit of Dylan-esque vocals. What else do you need to change your mind?
Listen: "I Lost You"

#52. TV On The Radio - Dear Science
"Dear Science" a record that will become classic and a point of reference of their entire career. Tv on the Radio are back with their third album and write their own page in the history of music.
Listen: "Dancing Choose"

#51. Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan - Sunday At Devil Dirt
Isobel Campbell's angelic voice and Mark Lanegan's dusty vocals create an album with an etherial and dirty ambience at the same time. They are undisputedly the most successful duet of the year with a great album!
Listen: "The Raven"
