Albums of the Year 2008 - Early Indicator Thread

Just thinking that albums released early in the year seem to get passed over a little in the "best of...." threads. Maybe it is a good idea to give some indications of stuff that is making an impression throughout the year.

I'll kick off

Sons & Daughters - "The Gift"

Somehow this is being viewed as their "pop" album - don't sound it to me though.

The new Franz Ferdinand album is due out in the next couple of months - I imagine it will be pretty good.

I have high hopes for the Gutter Twins album. It has been ordered, along with Pete and the Pirates and a bunch of other albums that have been on my 'to get' list for some time.

Gutter Twins is very good as well...but I think I needed "up" this year not "down" sad to say.

Thanks for the heads up on Vampire Weekend. I should have shown up sooner as I missed seeing them by a few weeks here.

The Los Campesinos album was a bit of a disappointment. In terms of, it's really not bad but I was hoping for excellent. The singles are much better.
