No Ripcord: Top 50 Albums of 2008 (Part One)

So, the year's almost over and all the last minute tallies are being rung up so as to decide how 2008 faired as a music year. Despite being mostly absent around the beginning of 2008, with my daughter being born two months early and family obligations canceling out blogging obligations, I did my best to stay up-to-date and hopefully won a lot of new readers. I also managed to score some extra work with the cordial staff at No Ripcord, who were nice enough to take me on as a contributor.

I will be compiling my own personal best of..., as I usually do, but probably not until early to mid-January. I still have some releases I want to get through, which I will hopefully complete before the ball drops in Times Square.

In the meantime, No Ripcord asked me to summarize four albums for their Top 50:

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Dig!!! Lazarus, Dig!!!
Marnie Stern - This Is It And I Am It And You Are It And So Is That And He Is It And She Is It And It Is It And That Is That
Wire - Object 47
Fucked Up - The Chemistry Of Common Life

Part One has been posted, with Part Two coming tomorrow.
