Last week I posted my top 10 CDs of 2008, with the disclaimer that I was uncomfortable posting so early because the year wasn't over. Sure enough, my hesitation has been justified.
Over the past couple of weeks I've revisited the self-titled release from Toronto electronic act Crystal Castles, and it's better than I initially realized.
MP3: Crystal Castles - Courtship Dating (from Crystal Castles)
One other note about my top 10 list - I've discovered that some of my favorite Jay Brannan songs, which I thought were on his CD Goddamned, actually aren't. (This is what I get for not purchasing the physical CD.) So, I've had to drop that disc down a few pegs.
The revised list of my favorite CDs of 2008:
1 Sigur Ros, Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust
2 Girl Talk, Feed the Animals
3 MGMT, Oracular Spectacular
4 Amanda Palmer, Who Killed Amanda Palmer?
5 Crystal Castles, Crystal Castles
6 Vampire Weekend, Vampire Weekend
7 TV On the Radio, Dear Science
8 Lykke Li, Youth Novels
9 Jay Brannan, Goddamned
10 Metro Station, Metro Station
