     Welcome to the Album of the Year article for the year 2008! As always, this list is a collection of records that moved ME - records that left an impression on ME. I am a big believer in the fact that music is a personal experience, and we all have different tastes - different likes and dislikes. My only purpose for compiling this list is to, perhaps, point you in the direction of something that might move you, and also to give you a glimpse at what moved my life musically during the twelve months we called 2008. This is not about debating which albums are "better," this is simply about the music. It's always about the music here at Dr. Music's Weekly Checkup.
     With that said, let's talk about my list for the past year. In the top spot this year is a band that I really don't know too much about. I went into this "Pretty. Odd." disc doubting them. I thought Panic At The Disco was another of these Good Charlotte or Fall Out Boy-types that would turn my stomach, but that was obviously not the case. Another surprise on the list was the long-awaited, I mean REALLY long awaited, "Chinese Democracy" release by Guns 'N' Roses, a band that I really do not like very much. And, I guess you could say that I was surprised all year long because I never thought I would be ranking another Asia album either. So, being pleasantly surprised and discovering more great new independent music made for a very fun year.
   Let's take a closer look at each of these picks........ 
 
1. "Pretty. Odd." - Panic At The Disco
     I feel like I've taken the biggest risk I've ever taken by choosing Panic At The Disco to top the list. This is a young band that is sometimes seen as silly and immature, but this record stuck with me like a greasy burrito. It stayed in the CD player for most of the year, and it engraved its pop grooves into my mind. I know this will be a controversial pick, but I found this particular record to have beautiful production, catchy melodies, and a pop charm reminiscent of The Beatles "Sgt. Pepper's" album. This is the guilty pleasure. This is a choice that just might lose some readers. I might be sacrificing some integrity here, but I really do feel that the music acts in my defense. Give it a listen with an open mind and let these songs speak to you. I think many of you just might understand why it holds the top spot.  
 
2. "Totality" - The Flyin' Ryan Brothers
     If you're looking for the best musical performance and most talented band of 2008, it's The Flyin' Ryan Brothers that you want. This "Totality" disc just might be the best instrumental album I've ever heard. I love Jeff Beck's "Wired" album, and I love Joe Satriani's "Surfing With The Alien," but this is something that bridges the gap between all of the great ones. Besides having one of the best rhythm sections I've ever heard (William Kopecky on bass and Johnny Mrozek), guitarist brothers Jimmy and Johnny Ryan put technical expertise, as well as patient melodicism and poise on display here. For the instrumental lovers out there, this is the perfect record.

3. "Death Magnetic" - Metallica
     Yes, that's right, the boys are back in town. No, not Thin Lizzy, but Metallica. After a less than impressive "St. Anger" record, and all of their dirty laundry hanging on the community clothesline, I think everyone had their doubts whether or not we would see this band return to their old form ever again. This album was definitely the most important album in their star-studded and lengthy career, without a doubt. If this one failed to impress, you could pretty much pound that last nail into the coffin. But, not only did this impress, it blew me away. The songwriting is excellent, their musical chops are incredibly tight, and the overall sound of the record is like the Metallica of old, and that's the most satisfying part of it all. No worries.... Metallica is still alive and well.

4. "Phoenix" - Asia
     Yeah, really, it's THAT Asia! The original lineup that gave us huge hits like "Heat of the Moment" and "Only Time Will Tell" returned to cut this remarkable album of great songs. I really do feel that this record rivals the amazing debut from the band. The songs are wonderfully written and nothing sounds forced. Who knows what the future of this turbulent band holds, but this record has me wanting to hear more.
 
5. "Indestructible" - Disturbed
     Okay, you can make the argument that all of their songs sound the same. I understand that line of thought, and would even partially agree with it! But, there is something about this band that just stirs things up deep inside of me. This is an aggressive record that is well written and produced by a band that is one of the tightest of its kind. The raw tension and the incredibly complex drum beats alone were enough to put this one on the list.

6. "Tout Ce Que J’Ai Ręvé" - Jellyfiche
     Somebody asked me once, "What's more important to you in a song: the lyrics or the music?" My reply, in essence, stated that I usually weigh both of the elements equally, but it also depends on the band and the style of music they play. Well, Jellyfiche lyrics are entirely in French, and I speak as much French as a garden hose. I don't understand what the hell they're saying, but I love this record. Coming from Unicorn Records, the progressive rock label that supplied last year's Album of the Year, Mystery's "Beneath the Veil of Winter's Face," comes a band that blends "Dark Side of the Moon"-type moods with early Genesis-type flair and inventiveness. And, the Eric Plante saxophone solos throughout the disc make this one of the most unique records of the year.

7. "Chinese Democracy" - Guns 'N' Roses
     If you would have told me that I'd have Guns 'N' Roses on my Top 10 list I probably would've laughed my way into the nearest psych ward. I feel that Guns 'N' Roses is probably the most overrated band in the history of rock and roll........by far. I thought "Appetite For Destruction" was simply good, but nothing special. The "Use Your Illusion" releases hit me about the same way - average. Singer (and it literally hurt to use that term for him) Axl Rose always sounded like he was from the typical L.A. sleaze scene. I had heard him a million times before. So, why people waited 17 years for this "Chinese Democracy" record just baffles me. 
     When I heard the title cut on the radio I was quite impressed. This wasn't your typical Axl, wasn't your typical G'N'R sound. It was razor sharp - maybe even a little over-produced. I thought I should check out the rest of the record, since it is the most anticipated record in history. Lo and behold, this really is a great record! Even Axl sounds like he became a singer over the 17 years he had to prepare. Words like "door" or "care" weren't made into seven syllable words with an irritating squeal and drawl. He actually "sings out" here, and it sounds pretty damn good. The songwriting is fresh and different. The guitar work is something that stood me straight up. Yes, all the pieces are together. And finally, I'm almost ashamed to say this, but I was reminded of Queensryche and their singer Geoff Tate while listening to a few of these tracks!! Not that Axl is even close to Tate in talent, but I wasn't reminded of a tortured alley cat, and that's a good thing.
 
8. "This Changes Nothing" - Ready Fire Aim
     This duo of poet/singer/actor/author/everything elser Sage Rader and DJ/producer Shaun Morris (a.k.a. Stakka) put out an album that you really can't classify, and that's difficult these days. With a sound somewhat similar to Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, and New Order, this is an album with great hooks, pumped up electronic beats, and a really killer production. All of these songs are delivered from different angles, too. Each of them has their own personality and appeal. I got hooked into this one early in the year, and it still spends a lot of time in the disc player.

9. "The Hand That's Dealt" - D-Day 4-Ever
     South Africa is in the house!! D-Day 4-Ever is a hard rock outfit that wear their South African heritage on their sleeves with great pride. Their song "Hello Afrika" is a rousing anthem for not only South African metal fans, but for all fans of great party music. But that's not all there is to this band. They can do the power ballad just as good as they can throw a party. With strong songwriting and hooks that kill, look for this band to break out of South Africa and start infecting the rest of the world.

10. "The Invisible Line" - Temposhark
     Temposhark is a London-based electronic rock band that has gained popularity on the club scene and critical acclaim amongst its peers. Producer Guy Sigsworth (Madonna, Britney Spears, Bjork) bacame an instant fan upon hearing their second EP and went on to produce the band's first UK single, "It's Better To Have Loved." With most of the production of this record handled by Sean McGhee, this is one of the sharpest, most intensely produced records I've ever heard. It's one of those you play if you want to show someone how good your stereo can sound, This is an awesome sounding disc that is truly a guilty pleasure and a treat for the ears.

Without a doubt  .........DISTURBED - "Indestructible" 
Honorable mentions: Theory of a Deadman - "Scars & Souvenirs"; Sammy Hagar - "Cosmic Universal Fashion"
 
Johan C.(Belgium)  
1. TV On The Radio - "Dear Science" 
Intruiging, tight, sexy, daring and ambitious without being too pretentious. An album that manages to hold your attention from a to z and that keeps on growing and gets richer every time you listen to it.
2. The Feeling - "Join With Us"
The most perfect example of beautifully crafted pop songs, full of golden melodies, catchy choruses and smart songwriting.
3. Grace Jones - Hurricane
The comeback of the year - no competition. An album that even holds up pretty good next to that definitive eighties album, Nightclubbing.
4. Jamie Lidell - Jim
Entertaining exercise in vintage retro soul - a white-faced Brit delivering a perfect black American soul record
5. Tim Grimm - Holding up the world
The perfect late night by the fireside album: country music in its most honest, bare form
6. Dido - Safe trip home
A surprise for me. Where I thought  I would find a mellow middle of the road collection of mediocre songs, I discovered a very touching album, perfect in all its subtility
7. Cut Copy - In Ghost Colours
 A perfect blending of New Order and Human League; groups that had their heyday when these young Australians from Cut Copy weren't even born yet.
8. Aimee Mann - @#ů&! Smilers
Slices of life, set to music, coming from one of the best female singer-songwriters around
9. Lindstrom - Where You Go I Go Too
A synth extravaganza, this lengthy piece of cosmis disco incorporates the best from Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis and Giorgio Moroder
10. MGMT - Oracular Spectacular
A mix of psychedelic rock and white funk, good for a fresh sound and some great singles


And besides the top ten, I enjoyed some marvelous singles from The Killers, The Script, The Kooks, Keane, Death Cab for Cutie, The Black Kids, The Raconteurs and The Hold Steady. 
Most overrated band: Fleet Foxes.

Christine W.(U.S.)
While I was up [in the Chicago area] in June I heard a band called Backdoor Slam on WXRT and I loved them!  So I've been listening to their CD all year, as well as Poi Dog Pondering (which no one down here [Florida] has heard of)... another was Adele, she has a very unique voice and I just love her for mellow music. Currently, I've been listening to some old Sublime CD's in the car, but when I'm home I've found 1st Wave on Sirius radio and I'm hooked!  It's all the music of my 20's clubbing in Chicago and it just really takes me back (New Order, The Cure, etc).  
 
You know my musical interests are all over because I bought the new James Taylor CD, Christina Aguleira - Decade of Hits and Beyonce's new CD as well.  I have a hard time with all these new rock groups because to me, they all sound alike... and unfortunately that's usually a sign of someone getting older, isn't it?  LOL
