Songs - I included all of the Vampire Weekend ones and I stretched it to 20, so if you want to not count any of them and bump others up, that's fine. I guess A-Punk shouldn't count since it's already advanced.

1 | Vampire Weekend | Oxford Comma
2 | Kings of Leon | Sex on Fire
3 | Kings of Leon | Use Somebody
4 | Coldplay | Viva la Vida
5 | Atmosphere | Puppets
6 | Thrice | Daedalus
7 | Vampire Weekend | A-Punk
8 | Duffy | Mercy
9 | Florence and the Machine | Dog Days Are Over
10 | Jason Mraz | I'm Yours
11 | Fleet Foxes | White Winter Hymnal
12 | Weezer | Pork and Beans
13 | Girls | Lust for Life
14 | Chairlift | Bruises
15 | Fleet Foxes | Mykonos
16 | TV on the Radio | Golden Age
17 | Santogold | L.E.S. Artistes
18 | The Temper Trap | Sweet Disposition
19 | Taylor Swift | You Belong with Me
20 | Vampire Weekend | M79


Albums - I agree with BleuPanda. Weak year, especially for albums.

1 | Vampire Weekend | Vampire Weekend
2 | TV on the Radio | Dear Science
3 | Kings of Leon | Only by the Night
4 | Fleet Foxes | Fleet Foxes
5 | Thrice | The Alchemy Index, Vol. 3 & 4: Air & Earth
6 | Kanye West | 808s & Heartbreak
7 | The Black Keys | Attack & Release
8 | Coldplay | Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends

I'm going to count them because there is some date confusion and even A-Punk hasn't automatically qualified. Your vote will push Oxford Comma above the cut line.

Glad to see Dear Science tearing up the albums poll so far but surprised to see only one vote for (in my opinion) the album's masterpiece, DLZ. It's always been a curiosity to me why this song didn't get more critical acclaim -- maybe it's the dull title?

Certainly one of the stronger songs on the album. I notice that critics tend to be influenced by which songs are released and promoted as singles by the record company. (If "Decades" had been released as a single, I don't think there is any chance at all that we would be talking about "Closer" as having no acclaimed songs.) Sometimes, they are even influenced by the sequence in which the singles are released. Critical acclaim then seems to influence our polls to some degree. So non-single album tracks have a hill to climb.

With 5 spots locked for the 4 toping the year in AM and, unfortunately, Viva la Vida, it seems like a very open year. Even assuming Elbow and Kanye are fairly safe, that leaves 3 spots that pretty much any albums could take.
So with that in mind, I hope The Dodos – Visiter can pull the same trick as last time we did the 2000s poll and make it to the 2nd round. I think most of the people who voted for it back then are not around much anymore (I meant, I could send a messenger to Jonah for support…) and the fact I didn’t nominate it recently in moderately acclaimed mean it is probably not much known by newer members of the forum, so here I am urging you to give it a spin.
Allmusic wrote:Lots of late-2000s indie bands boast archaic and/or exotic influences, but few use them with the energy and creativity that the Dodos do on Visiter, their first officially released album. Country-blues fingerpicking meets West African Ewe drumming meets metal meets indie pop sounds like an all-too-wacky description on a band's MySpace page, but the Dodos turn these far-flung elements into delightfully natural-sounding music. What holds it all together is Meric Long and Logan Kroeber's strong pop sensibilities -- that's "pop" in the sense of memorable melodies and ear-catching hooks, because the Dodos' songs are too full of ideas to stick to a verse-chorus-verse format for very long.[...]Visiter's experimental pop is so joyous and liberated-sounding that it's difficult not to get swept along in its wake.




Probably the only year where none of my top 3 is ranked in AM.

Albums :

1) The Dodos - Visiter
2) Puppetmastaz - The Takeover
3) Los Campesinos! - Hold On Now, Youngster...
4) Vampire Weekend - Vampire Weekend
5) M83 - Saturdays = Youth
6) Hot Chip - Made in the Dark
7) Portishead - Third
8) TV on the Radio - Dear Science
9) Deerhunter - Microcastle / Weird Era Cont.
10) Benga - Diary of an Afro Warrior
11) Marnie Stern - This Is It and I Am It and You Are It and So Is That and He Is It and She Is It and It Is It and That Is That
12) Lil Wayne - Tha Carter III
13) Foals - Antidotes
14) Los Campesinos - We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed
15) Kanye West - 808s & Heartbreak

16) Lindstrøm - Where You Go I Go Too
17) Crystal Castles - Crystal Castles [I]
18) Fuck Buttons - Street Horrrsing
19) Elbow - The Seldom Seen Kid
20) Laura Marling - Alas, I Cannot Swim
21) Ra Ra Riot - The Rhumb Line
22) Girl Talk - Feed the Animals
23) Eagles of Death Metal - Heart On
24) Why? - Alopecia
25) She & Him - Volume One

Both 2007 and both already qualified for our decade poll.

Again 2007, but not qualified for our decade poll, so you can vote for them if you like.

Dear God, is there a single song here? (Imagine buying The Buzzcocks' Singles Going Steady on the same day, and having to compare the two.) Somehow, their next time at bat, they got 500 million times better.

This may not be known as the best year in music, but perhaps that's more the fault of the albums. For songs it was very strong, even if far from every one of them comes from a good album.

1. Fleet Foxes – Mykonos
2. Laura Marling – Night Terror
3. Santigold – L.E.S. Artistes
4. Coldplay – Viva la Vida
5. Elbow – One Day Like This
6. Lily Allen – The Fear
7. Fleet Foxes – White Winter Hymnal
8. The Kills – Cheap and Chearful
9. Kings of Leon – Sex on Fire
10. Santigold – Lights Out
11. The Verve – Love Is Noise
12. Portishead – The Rip
13. Bobbejaan – Verankerd
14. Bruce Springsteen – The Wrestler
15. Duffy – Warwick Avenue

I will close off in 24 hours time. Right now, our #1 song of 2008 is surprising (at least to me). 8 albums are scoring well, but after that there is a half hearted tussle for positions 9 & 10 with no albums currently outside the top 8 scoring enough to crack the wildcard list. Lots of possibility to influence the results, so keep those votes coming.

Nassim wrote:With 5 spots locked for the 4 toping the year in AM and, unfortunately, Viva la Vida, it seems like a very open year. Even assuming Elbow and Kanye are fairly safe, that leaves 3 spots that pretty much any albums could take.


Pretty much spot on - except that you forgot about two albums that are quite popular with AMF.

Hi Toni
You voted for both of these in the 2007 poll, so I'm going to remove them from this list and promote all the other songs up 2 positions. I have accepted some votes for A-Punk & Oxford Comma, but these were from folks that didn't vote for them in the 2007 poll.

ALBUMS results.

32 voters voted for 176 different albums.
A different #1 from previous polls.
Outside the top 10 only one album has any chance of making the decade poll via wildcard.
Not much love for Deerhunter or Cut Copy this time around.

Huh, I thought Microcastle was a shoo-in. Cut Copy album is great as well, could have given it more points.
