However. This is the bit you won't like reading. Upon glancing at the Best of 2008 list i've rather given up a large portion of my faith in this community, with only two or three exceptions it seems to be populated by fair weather tripe that only a publication so blinded by people that look a tiny bit like Noel Fielding as NME could ever openly champion. Pathetic excuses for music like the Tings Tings and Santogold. I just don't see the appeal there, i've tried listening to them, so much, but you can hear the smug disregard for artistic achievement bleeding through the speakers.
Its a regrettable thing, as much as i hate adjusting my hopes dreams and aspirations to the Gregorian Calendar, i hope next year people will see more sense.
Bring on the noise!
