Shiiiiiiiiit how could I forget Girls Aloud?! My favourite song is Untouchable.
And Fleet Foxes, damnit. Was that 2007 or 2008 though? I have no idea about this stuff.

Slipknot

Think if I add my 2 "cents" I could make it the most voted for album... that would be KOL only by the night, cracking and very different album yet again. And the Vampire Weekend album also grew on me like a filthy rash.

My only other one is perhaps the Bloc Party album, Intimacy

I would like to please retract Crystal Castles from my list. It's not that great of an album. I think I just like Vanished too much. There was also that month that I was obsessed with Crimewave.
Anyways, that's off my list.

The Bon Iver record was self-released in 07 and got a full label release in 08 so I'm not sure if it's an 08 or 07 album.
