MOJO Magazine // Top 50 Albums Of 2008

I consider Bon Iver’s ‘For Emma’ a 2007 release. I love that they excluded Vampire Weekend, one of the most overrated bands of 2008. Fleet Foxes isn’t a bad pick, but I have them ranked somewhere between 11 and 20 on my list. Thoughts?

Good Picks/Bad Rankings: The Black Keys, Elbow, TV On The Radio

Omissions: The Raconteurs, Deerhunter, Deerhoof, Department of Eagles, My Morning Jacket

Head Scratchers: Neil Diamond, Metallica
