My favorite songs from my 15 favorite releases of 2008 (which was a pretty consistently cool year for music). Most of these have appeared on mixes of mine throughout the year, so there shouldn't be many surprises. For perspective, Sic Alps [track 5] released my favorite album of the year [U.S. Ez] and Gunslingers [track 14] released my 15th favorite album of the year. Title by Cee-Lo, presumably.

Another year gone already? Looks cool, based on the 50% or so that I recognize. Happy New Year, Rob.

I'm with Ed (and your opinion of the year). Have a good one, Rob.

And, for the second or third straight year, not a common album between us. Will need to do some investigating here.

Very nice Rob. I'm shaping up my own double disc Ond-of-the-year mix and I can tell you that tracks 3, 4 and 6 are going to be on it. Awesome mix.
