Sam's Favorite Albums of 2008

I haven't had the chance to listen to a lot of new music of 2008, I catch myself listening to a lot of last years albums. But here are my fav's of this year. I'll keep the reviews short. Stole this idea from Revision (thanks man). The albums are in no paticular order. These are the albums I can't seem to stop listening to.



Duffy - Rockferry
This girl has an amazing and distinct voice, my cousin played it at work one day...and Warwick Ave just captured me. She has a sweet bluesy sound. My 2008 version of Corinne Bailey Rae.
Favorite track: Scared


Adele - 19
Another great singer. Yet again heard of her thru my cousin.
Favorite Track: Melt my Heart to Stone



Estelle - Shine
What can I say? All together good album.
Favorite Track: You Are (Featuring John Legend)




John Legend - Evolver
A different sound from John Legend. Green Light blew me away when I first heard it. He still takes it back to the old JL for the track "This Time".
Favorite Track(s): Quickly (Featuring Brandy), No Other Love (Featuring Estelle)

Inverse - So Far
Dopest street album man. These guys are dope, introduced to me by the homie Romeo.
Favorite Track - One Step



Common Market - Tobacco Road
Seattle's hip hop scene is the real deal. Massline. Sabzi is just a genius man. Scion is a wordsmith.
Favorite Track(s): Gol'Dust, Crucible (Featuring Geologic)

Revision - Forward Progress Mixtape
As soon as I put this album in, I couldn't take it out of my car. A true emcee. Keeps it real, down to earth.
Favorite Track(s): All of them!!! haha, if I have to choose: Represent, Pushin', and Myspace.

Bambu - Exact Change
Truly my favorite album of the year. You can see the progress from "Self Untitled". Amazing beats by many producers; Fatgums, Amplive, Sabzi. Someone once told me "If you wanna make a real music, you gotta know who you are first"...this guy knows who he is...therefore real music. Bam is on top of his game, lyrically, on politics, on swagger, everything. Everyone must cop this.
Favorite Track(s): Spare Change, Swing (Featuring Zion-I), Like Us, Misused.
