Black's # 1 Album of 2008

#1. Cut Copy
In Ghost Colours
Modular - 03/22/2008

I will always remember 2008 as the year my ear became more in tune with electronica and disco synths. In Ghost Colours is an overwhelming positive album with warm tones and lightness beautifully scattered throughout the entire ride. Now, by lightness, I mean that the band never really presents the listener with any subject matter that needs to be over analysed or wrestled with, instead they rely on anthem inducing choruses about matters of the heart, like any good electronic band should. The tracks weave together beautifully, making for a very fluid album that leaves you anticipating what will come next, while at the same time grimacing that the luscious songs have to come to an end. The whole album is a banger, so I don't feel there is any need to discussing one track, just listen to the whole damn thing. And with that the countdown is over, feel free to post about any albums you thought deserved more love or received too much praise. Until next year, enjoy the shit out of your music folks, it's the best thing we got...
