  10. Keane –Perfect Symmetry

This list wasn’t easy to compile. Still it reflects my musical journey through 2008 quite well. And it is an honest list – some might rub their nose at Keane, but, please forgive, I really liked their album, which turned out to be a good listen when the office was buzzing with work. Beck’s new outing was as terrific as it was bleak and turned out to be one of my favourite listens closely followed by Coldplay’s great new Eno-produced album, which came out just before our wedding. Listening to Viva La Vida time warps me back to this wonderful time in Syl’s and my life.

As I limited myself to a Top 10 list, I had to leave some good albums out. Here are the other contenters:

I surely have missed some great albums. Feel free to post your lists and albums which should definitely be on my list and in my iTunes. Thanks and Merry Christmas.
