Best CDs of 2008
« on: January 10, 2009, 07:21:43 am »
Top 10 CDs of 2008

1.   The Garden – Unitopia – Grabbing for the brass ring in your sophomore attempt! Now that takes guts! It should be rewarded!
2.   01011001 - Ayreon – Dominated the first half of the year! The Maestro consistently delivers powerful double albums!
3.   Pure - Pendragon – “Ground – breaking, star gazing!” The future is bright!
4.   Into the Sun – Candlebox – May eclipse their first album in time. Incredible! Soundtrack of the summer, along with Journey!
5.   Forth – The Verve – Well worth the wait!
6.   Revelation – Journey – I thought this band was finished. They are back!
7.   Viva – Coldplay - Incredible work! More coming by the end of the year! They have struck oil and the well is far from dry.
8.   Warpaint – Black Crowes - This was only a warm –up. This band is back!
9.   DOYS – Oasis - I really missed that Beatles sound.
10.   Nine Lives – Steve Winwood - Very good, but this is only the start of the comeback!

Here in America we listen to more than just prog, because there is so little prog available.

Yeah, U2, there is “no line on the horizon!” We look forward to a bright future ahead! Talisman in hand!
It's a journey that takes us to the ends of our lives,
A race never lost, never won.
More than a dream, less than a vision,
Adventure again just begun.
