'08's Music to Love More Than Music: Someone To Love

Tricked you! This is the runner up for my favorite of the year. The real favorite of the year will be up tomorrow :)
Runner Up (sm12<3):

Frightened Rabbit - The Midnight Organ Fight

While there were a great deal of albums that deserve to be on the top of many lists, I felt a little bad that this one did make the absolute top of my list, because in many ways it is better than the one that did make the top, but I love the top so much more than I think I'll ever love this album, and as a consumer of music, I think that makes all the difference. Every song on here is a classic, each one being worthy of singledom. If Frightened Rabbit had been my favorite band prior to this release, this would probably be my favorite album of all time. Each instrument, note, etc. is exactly where it needs to be. When people say 2008 was a bad year for music, I simply point them to this album.
Frightened Rabbit - The Modern Leper
Frightened Rabbit - Keep Yourself Warm
Frightened Rabbit - The Twist
