Albums that have been released in 2008 that are worth hearing


Recommended Posts

I forgot to include the poll, so I'm changing this thread. What albums that came out this year are worth checking out?


I would recommend:


City and Colour - Bring Me Your Love

Jason Collett - Here's to Being Here

R.E.M. - Accelerate

British Sea Power - Do You Like Rock Music

The Constantines - Kensington Heights

I hope our local band (Elvis Jackson) will release their cd this year. But i doubt they will because they're in the studio atm. We (local scouts) wanted to use them for an event we're preparing, but they couldn't make it. Gah!


And I also hope that Coldplay's LP4 will be okay. :D

^ Perhaps you have some special time machine we don't have?


I'm saying albums worth hearing i.e. you have already listened to them.




Travis - Ode to J.Smith :P

Elbow - The Seldom Seen Kid

Drive-By Truckers - Brighter Than Creation's Dark

Chris Drifford - The Last Temptation of Chris

WAS - Brain Trust Mastery

British Sea Power's album


For a start

311 is a rock/reggae/rap band that is based in L.A. They have a huge following in the United States, and a rather large intl. following. I am surprised you don't know them, though I am sure you would be familiar with their songs. For instance, Come Original...




**EDIT: I have started a 311 thread in Other Multimedia. I have uploaded Come Original there. This is one of their best songs - so much ENERGY and MELODY**

- R.E.M. - Accelerate


I think it's a great album, although it's a bit short...


- The Kooks - Konk


Came out last Friday in Germany and I love it! Perhaps not as good as Inside In/Inside Out, but especially the first songs are amazing!

Oracular Spectacular - MGMT

It was released digitally in October 07, but the CD came out in January 08 - it's excellent, go buy it!


Future album releases:

I am hoping the new Green Day album is going to be released this year and that it is going to kick arse. BJ Armstrong said he's been writing a lot of it on piano and that it will reflect the fact that he is feeling 'middle-aged'.

Isn't that the album where I have yet to seen a reviewer giving it more than 4 out of 10?


Where the man from the Mail on Sunday who is normally star happy gave the album a stone dead 0 out of 5 and said it was the worst album he has listened to for a couple years?
