'08's Music to Love More Than Music: Love, Pt. 2

Love (<)
The Atomica Project - Grayscale
Her voice reminds me of the female vocals in interludes on Scandinavian Death Metal albums that I used to listen to in High school, which is why I was instantly attracted to it. The song writing makes me think that this duo was in a dark place when they were forming these songs. This was a hard album to recommend to some friends, but I can only imagine that's more a fault on my side than the album's
The Atomica Project - Into the Arms of Strangers

Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes
Everyone went bat ... shit ... crazy over this album. I liked it, for sure. Loved it in fact. But some of the songs just got old over a short period of time, and I found myself skipping songs to get to some of my more favorite songs. I would not doubt that this is one of the smartest albums of the year, but I certainly didn't like it as much as I liked some other albums this year.
Fleet Foxes - Tiger Mountain Peasant Song

The Sound of Animals Fighting - The Ocean and the Sun
Of course, one of the more crazy albums of the year. By far the best studio album that has come out of this little project. I'm glad to say/hear that there really does seem to be a good bunch of music behind all this craziness, but it's still not for everyone. Still, a fun experiment and all that jazz. now sure what I'm talking about when I say experiment? then check out the Wiki on this project.
The Sound of Animals Fighting - The Swan
