Although I've been listening to new albums through the whole year, now that I see what else was released I really feel I've missed it all
But the few I actually know amongst the winners are well-deserved. Good job.

Same here. Actually I'm quite shocked about it; it almost means I haven't listened to the music all year, cause I don't know a huge number of bands there.

The good news - I have a month to make up leeway.

Hi, gang. If you are going to write an album in, please be sure it was released in 2008. Apparently some people have had problems separating albums that were released in 2008 from albums that were released in 2005.

I realize it might be difficult for some to process that the MS 2008 awards are for albums that were released in 2008, i mean just because 2008 is in the title of the awards doesn't mean we should expect our posters to figure the 2008 awards apply to 2008 releases.

Interesting nominess. The Progressive category might require some relistening but overall 2008 definitely wasn't the greatest year . . . hmm who to vote for.
