We'll Take a Cup of Kindness Yet

I'm exhausted by the thought of a year-end list. It seems like an arbitrary cut-off as many albums I enjoy now were released last year or 20 years ago. Plus, you can read Too Poppy and easily get a sense for what I've enjoyed and experienced this past year. Obviously the new Matthew Sweet album was a high point of the year, as was the new, loose Fireman release. Fleet Foxes shockingly lives up to the hype whereas the new Oasis deserves a bit more. And at year's end, I simply cannot get Kings of Leon's Sex on Fire out of my head. I also can't forget that I was blown away by stellar live performances by Radiohead, Flaming Lips, and Wilco. Wow. 2008 was alright.

If you're seeking a more substantive review of the year that was, I invite you to a former Too Poppy contributor's yearender. Otherwise, you know where else to look.

Happy New Year, Poppers. Cheers!
