Best of 2008

It's been a great year for new music here at BFD. We've seen a lot of bands and heard even more. So, now it's time for my list of the best and brightest of the '08. I was just going to do a top 10 of albums and songs, but, then I realized that there were more albums and singles I liked than just 10 of each. So, it's top 10 plus some.

Feel free to let me know if you like the choices or add what you think are better. Discussion is good for you and always encouraged.

what's the deal with your extreme dislike to 'cease to begin'? why was this album not in your top 15?
