So, since we're nearing the end of the first quarter of 2008, what would say is the best album to be released so far this year?

My choices:

"Board up the House"- Genghis Tron
"Fortress"- Protest the Hero
"Omega"- The Cancer Conspiracy


Now, granted, I DO have a ways to go in terms of finding more amazing releases so far this year, but these have all really blown me away.


So, what are your picks thus far?

Gnarls Barkley. It's available for download now.

..but that may just be because I'm a huge Cee Lo fan.

Alestorm have given the olny interesting release so far for me.

Also, UG Original Album.

I kinda knew this year would suck compared to last year, TBH. The first half of the year is never as good as the second though, so let's hope.

The album I'm looking forward to more than anything is

Ill Nino's Enigma is probably the best this year so far I think. Not really heard much new music though.

Unless I can count The Blackening as this year too.. :P
My name is Marc! Silly username.

The new Mars Volta.... or... Dead to Fall's new album is pretty effin good.

Just gotta say one thing though....

BFMV new album = more fail than the previous

Fortress is incredible, so +9000 to that

The only other 2008 album I have is Agalloch's White EP, but I have yet to listen to it.

Queens of the Stone Age- Era Vulgaris Canada Bonus Album. The bonus tracks are great. Also the UG Origional Album is great because it's so different from mainstream music.
#18
It doesn't really count, 'cause it's live, but it's probably the only album coming out in 2008 that I really like/want so

Phill is a very attractive guy...

They call it "Time" because that's exactly what they're using a hell of a lot of to make it.

but, yeah, I can't wait, either.

I'm considering whether to buy that or not. Worth its money I suppose?

If you've heard Hex it's in that style but better. There's free song from it on the Southern Lord website.

Killing Season by Death Angel has really come out as one hell of a thrasher, not just a dead band trying to ween eleven more songs out before they perish, but a genuine rebirth. It has put them at the front of the new wave of thrash - with Exodus and Testament - even though those are all old bands.
